NEW ULM, Minn. -

 

A New Ulm man is facing multiple felonies after allegedly possessing and selling methamphetamine.
 
Authorities say Ronnie Lee James Bottenfield Krueth sold meth out of his New Ulm apartment on multiple occasions.

According to the criminal complaint, back in February, a drug task force conducted multiple, controlled buys of meth from Krueth. Each sale consisted of several hundred dollars worth of drugs.

On February 15th, authorities executed a search warrant at Krueth's residence and noted that Krueth appeared to be under the influence of a powerful stimulant. 

The complaint goes on to say 66 OxyContin tablets were found along with digital scales and over $3,200 in cash.

The 31-year-old suspect is now facing four felony drug charges in connection with the investigation.
