The Winona Daily News recently reported a drug sting in Winona, Minnesota. Jason Michael Flynn, 24, from Chicago was headed to Zumbrota, Minnesota to sell drugs to a police drug informant. On the way, Flynnâ€™s car broke down on Interstate 90 and had to be towed to Borkowski Inc. Towing and Salvage on 5035 W. 6th St. in Goodview. There the police arrested Flynn for selling 54.25 grams of cocaine for $3,600.
He was charged with first-degree sale of 10 grams or more of cocaine and first-degree possession of more than 25 grams of the drug. According to Minnesota State sentencing guidelines, he faces more than six years in prison if convicted on either charge, even without a criminal history.
Before this incident, the police were investigating Flynn before he stopped in Winona. Thanks to the drug informantâ€™s tip, the police and the Southeast Minnesota Narcotics & Gang Task Force waited for him to arrive in the area. A 17-year-old girl, who was a runaway from Chicago, also accompanied Flynn. She was taken into custody and arrangements were made to send her home.
This was great work done by law enforcement to get another bad guy peddling dangerous drugs off Minnesota streets.
