HOUSTON, Minn. (WKBT) — A 59-year-old rural Houston man faces a felony drug possession charge after Minneapolis St.-Paul International Airport Police notified local authorities that they had intercepted a UPS package containing about 4 pounds of methamphetamine addressed to him.



Based on the tip Tuesday, members of the Houston County Sheriff’s Office and the Southeast Minnesota Violent Crime Enforcement Team raided Todd Lamore’s residence on Wednesday, according to a news release from the county sheriff’s office.

While executing the search warrant, the officers confiscated another half-pound of meth, the release said.

Lamore was charged Thursday in Houston County District Court with felony first-degree possession of methamphetamine. He is being held in the county jail on $100,000 bail.
