A 44-year-old man from Lake Crystal is facing serious drug charges after the Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force received a tip that Jeremy Ullrich was dealing large amounts of meth. He was already wanted on several felony warrants.


Agents raided a home in Mankato and found Ullrich hiding behind the bathroom door. They believe he tried to flush a bag of meth down the toilet, after finding it floating in the bowl.

Police found a used syringe in Ullrich’s pockets, as well his wallet and a locked box that contained nearly $12,000 in cash. Probation records show he’s unemployed and not receiving any sort of government assistance.

He is charged with first degree meth sales, a felony that can mean of to 30 years in prison if he’s convicted, and second degree meth possession, a 40-year felony.

Court records show Ullrich has two previous drug convictions.
