A Redwood Falls man accused by the state of being “clearly a public safety risk” was sentenced in Redwood County District Court for his history of methamphetamine sales and possession. Jesse Dean Lindberg, age 38, was sentenced to over six years in the correctional facility in St. Cloud.

According to court documents, on April 21 of last year, the Redwood Falls Police Department performed a search of Lindberg’s residence. Earlier that day, officers had stopped Lindberg in his car and found nearly $3,200 in cash on his person. In the residence officers found numerous baggies containing methamphetamine as well as more cash and drug paraphernalia.

Lindberg had been charged with three separate sales of methamphetamine in the two months before his residence was searched. Investigators concluded Lindberg had sold or possessed over 100 grams of meth during those two months.

On March 21, Lindberg was sentenced for felony controlled substance possession in the first degree to 73 months in the correctional facility in St. Cloud.
