St. Paul Resident Faces Second-Degree Possession Charges

Scott Edward Olson, a 57-year-old resident of St. Paul, faces a felony charge of second-degree possession of a controlled substance in Morrison County District Court following an incident on March 10.

The charge stems from a routine patrol conducted by a deputy of the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office at the intersection of Highway 10 and Highway 371. During observation, the deputy noticed a vehicle with a suspended handicap hanger hanging from the rearview mirror, obstructing the driver’s view. The driver, later identified as Olson, appeared to be intentionally concealing himself from the deputy by sitting low and leaning back in his seat.

Upon stopping the vehicle, Olson admitted to the presence of the hanger, which was in violation of regulations. Additionally, a female passenger was observed moving an item in her bag, revealing a clear glass pipe recognized by the deputy as a methamphetamine pipe.

Further investigation led to the discovery of multiple bags containing methamphetamine in the vehicle’s center console. Olson claimed ownership of the drugs, leading to his arrest.

Subsequent testing confirmed the presence of methamphetamine in the seized bags, weighing approximately 30.5 grams, 7.7 grams, and 1.2 grams respectively.

Olson is now facing legal proceedings related to the possession of a controlled substance.
