Methamphetamine manufacturing materials located in Monticello

On Saturday, November 16th around 7:50am Wright County deputies were called to a drug complaint near the intersection of 90th St NE and Haug Ave NE in Monticello Township. During the investigation deputies located items and chemicals consistent with those used to manufacture methamphetamine. The investigation led deputies to a residence in the 6900 block of 91st NE in Monticello where additional items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine were located. Due to possible hazards involved in the containment, collection, and clean-up of the area, specialized units from the BCA and DEA were contacted. These specialized units will be on scene at the residence today collecting evidence and disposing of any hazardous materials that may be at the location. While this is an active investigation (ICR 19036893) there is no immediate danger to the public. The Wright County Sheriff’s Office has kept deputies on scene since Saturday to secure the residence while waiting for the DEA response team. As a result of this investigation the Wright County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Jeremy Willer (39) of Monticello for 1st degree controlled substance crimes as well as possessing counterfeit currency.
