Grand Rapids, MN (Northland’s NewsCenter) – Four people have been charged for allegedly possessing and selling meth from a hotel room in Grand Rapids.

Tanner William Anderson, 27 of Bovey, Minnesota, Christian Marie Huf, 26, of Bovey, Minnesota, Brent Lee Martin, 34, of Coleraine, Minnesota, and Keith Lee Scovel, 24, of Bovey, Minnesota were charged with two counts of first degree felony crime of a Controlled Substance after they allegedly possessed with intent to sell about 35 grams of methamphetamine.

The criminal complaint states that on June 10, 2012, authorities received information that Martin had active felony warrants and may have been staying at a hotel in Grand Rapids.

Authorities say they received information from others staying at the hotel that Martin and Huf were using heroin and meth in a hotel room.

The front desk clerk mentioned that many vehicles and people had been visiting the room over the past several days and that they suspected drug sales had been going on at the room, according to the report.

Authorities say they went into the hotel room and located Martin, Anderson and Scovel.

Huf has been detained outside near a car.

Authorities executed a search warrant and located multiple baggies and two containers of liquid that consisted of meth, and weighed 35 grams, the criminal complaint says.

Records show that Martin has been convicted of numerous controlled substance crimes from 2004-2011 and Martin was convicted of a controlled substance crime in 2007.

The maximum penalty the defendants could face is 30-40 years in jail as well as a $1,000,000 fine.
