In the course of the investigation, DTF investigators were able to obtain a search warrant for a residence in the 26000 block on 3rd St East, within the city of Zimmerman.
DTF investigators executed that warrant and found approximately 1 ounce of methamphetamine and approximately $16,000 in cash. Investigators arrested Barnhart and Pouliot on scene without incident and transported them to the Sherburne County Jail where they remain pending arraignment.
