Agents intercept a shipment of fentanyl destined for Saint-Cloud

ST. CLOUD ― The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force learned earlier this month that Minneapolis Airport Police investigators intercepted a package containing 5,600 fentanyl tablets that was being shipped to an address located in the 1700 block of Seventh Avenue South in the City of St. Cloud, according to a news release Tuesday morning.

Task force officers wrote and executed a search warrant at the address and arrested several residents. Daeshawna Kay West, 33, of St. Cloud, was arrested for first-degree possession of a controlled substance for taking custody of the fentanyl pill packet.

Investigators were able to establish probable cause to arrest Eric Antonio Dodd, 31, of St. Cloud, for first degree possession of a controlled substance based on information showing that Dodd was the person who ordered the package of fentanyl pills in arizona. Dodd had a warrant for second-degree assault and a felon in possession of a firearms case stemming from an investigation into a shooting that occurred in the 500 block of 17th Avenue North in St. Cloud May 21.

Investigators located a large amount of marijuana at the residence and charged Angela Marie Imdieke, 43, of St. Cloud, with fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance.

On June 17, task force investigators, with assistance from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, were able to locate Dodd at a convenience store and arrested him without incident. He is currently being held in the Stearns County Jail for first degree possession of a controlled substance and prior warrant.
