Drug charge follows search of Rosemount home
A Rosemount man was charged with felony marijuana possession in district court May 29 following a police search of his home earlier this year.
Police say they found about four ounces of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia, when they executed a narcotics search warrant at the residence of 35-year-old Jeremy A. Paulsen in February.
According to the criminal complaint, police discovered a Tupperware container containing two baggies of marijuana, as well as a digital scale, in the laundry room of the home; they also found a wooden “dugout” with a green leafy residue in the living room.
If convicted of the felony possession charge, Paulsen faces a maximum of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. He’s also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a petty misdemeanor that carries a $300 fine.
