Two Farmington men charged with drug offenses

Two Farmington residents have been charged with felony drug offenses after Dakota County Drug Task Force agents found marijuana, THC caplets and Oxycodone in their home.

Task force agents searched the home of Kristen Nevels, 27, and Kurtis Elliott, 29, Nov. 23. They entered the home by force after nobody responded to knocks.

According to a complaint filed last week in the Dakota County Attorney's office, task force agents found partially smoked marijuana cigarettes, six jars containing marijuana and a number of caplets later identified as THC and Oxycodone.

All told there was 91.48 grams of marijuana in the home.

If convicted on one of three felony drug charges Elliott and Nevels could face up to five years in jail and up to $30,000 in fines.
