At 9 am this morning, the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Department was executing a search warrant at Lansing’s Hardware. I tried to enter but the doors were locked and a “closed for inventory” sign on the door. There were several men inside, along with Lee and David.
I phoned Interim Police Chief Roger Schroeder to inquire about what was happening. He said he did get a courtesy call this morning from Goodhue that the operation was about to begin but otherwise had no information. I phoned Lee Lansing, but he was not at liberty to talk. I phoned Rice County Court admin to see what public info was available for search warrants but was told they don’t typically receive them till several days after they’ve been served.
Tracy and I conferred throughout the morning about what to blog and when and we decided to wait and see if others in town were being served with search warrants.
A few minutes ago, the Northfield News posted a story on their web site in which they reported that the “A second sheriff’s vehicle has pulled up to the Home Source Mortgage business of Paul Norby on Sixth Street and emerged with four computers.”
We’re trying to get a public copy of the search warrant.
