ROCHESTER, Minn. Tear gas was used before members of the Emergency Response Unit had to enter a residence during a drug search warrant Thursday morning.
The subject of the search warrant, 30-year-old Tyler Clark, was believed to be in the attic of the house at 1408 2nd St. SE despite people inside saying he wasn't there.
Evidence led authorities to believe Clark was inside and they deployed tear gas in an attempt to get him out. After not cooperating, authorities went into the attic and took Clark into custody.
Authorities say they found nearly seven ounces of methamphetamine, a half ounce of marijuana and three handguns in his room.
He is facing charges for first-degree aggravated controlled substance with a firearm, three counts of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and obstruction of the legal process.
Jessica Ehmke, 34, of Spring Valley, is facing a charge for aiding an offender after she told authorities Clark wasn't inside.
