This stems from when members of the Lake Superior Drugs and Violent Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant on Monday night. They entered a home at 121 18th Street East, which is the address on both Bailey and Jurek's criminal complaints.

During a search of the residence, authorities say they found about seven pounds worth of methamphetamine, along with heroin, mushrooms, and marijuana. That's in addition to the $10,840 in cash in the home as well.

The criminal complaints say that Bailey was found hiding in a closet. Jurek was already wanted for an outstanding warrant.
