AITKIN -- Two Aitkin County men have been charged in district court for separate controlled substance crimes.
The two men, a 38-year-old Palisade resident and a 50-year-old Tamarack resident, were charged in Aitkin County District Court Thursday for crimes relating to the production of methamphetamine, Aitkin County Sheriff Dennis Landborg reported Friday.
They were arrested Tuesday at a rural Palisade residence and at a rural Tamarack residence, after the Aitkin County Sheriff's Department and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension executed search warrants at the two residences, said Landborg.
