Jose Angel Fuentes, 32, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree drug possession, a press release from the agency indicated.

No charges have yet been filed against him. Under Minnesota law, for the offense to rise to the level of first-degree drug possession, Fuentes would have to have been found with at least 25 grams of meth.

Acting on a tip, investigators obtained consent to search Fuentes' home and found a "large amount of methamphetamine" within a wall, according to the release.

In carrying out the search and arrest, the Pine to Prairie Drug Task Force worked in conjunction with the Crookston Police Department and with a federal Border Patrol K9, the release indicated.

The drug task force is comprised of officers from northwest Minnesota and federal Border Patrol agents.
