Taconite, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Four pounds of synthetic marijuana, known as "Spice", was found at a residence in Taconite, MN, with a street value of $4,000.

On Thursday the Itasca County Sheriff's Office busted two men in connection with drugs they found as a result of executing a court ordered search warrant. Of the six people inside the residence at the time of the drug bust, two were arrested.

The owner of the home, 53-year-old Kevin John Leclair was charged with 5th degree felony possession of a controlled substance.

61-year-old David Vincent Thrasher was charged with 5th degree felony possession of a controlled substance, as well as obstruction of justice.

Drug gear, equipment used to manufacture "Spice" and evidence indicating sales of "Spice" were also found inside the residence.
Authorities say there is a possibility that methamphetamine was used at the residence.

This drug bust was made possible due to a three month investigation by the Itasca County Sheriff's Office.
