Sheriff: SWAT Team Being Used During Pierz Drug Investigation
PIERZ — If you’ve seen the SWAT Team or heard loud bangs in your Pierz neighborhood, it’s because the sheriff’s office is in the middle of a drug investigation.
Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen says his office along with the Central MN Violent Offender Task Force and the Pierz Police Department are working together on the active case.
Most recently, around 6:00 a.m. Monday authorities searched a home in Pierz. During the search the SWAT Team used distraction devices to confuse the people inside the home. Larsen says residents in the neighborhood may have heard loud bangs but no shots were fired during the search.
No one was arrested during the search and Larsen says the investigation is still active. At this time no further details about this incident, including the specific neighborhood where the search took place, are being released.
