AUSTIN, Minn. – A guilty plea has been entered in a case involving hundreds of grams of methamphetamine.

Robert Trevino, 47 of Austin, was arrested on January 10 and charged with two counts of 1st degree drug possession. Austin police say when they searched Trevino’s home, they found 378 grams of meth, about 103 grams of marijuana, $1,913 in cash, three smartphones, a digital scale, and drug paraphernalia. Officers say Trevino climbed out a window and onto the roof to try and avoid capture.

He entered a guilty plea Thursday to one count of 1st degree meth possession. A sentencing date has not been set.
