45 Grams Of Meth Found In Latest Drug Bust

December 6, 2012, 11:34 AM by Shawn Neisteadt

45 Grams Of Meth Found In Latest Drug Bust
Lester Estenson, Nov. 2012

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A man is behind bars for the second time in just a month after a drug bust in Sioux Falls.

The Sioux Falls Area Drug Force carried out a search warrant at 816 North French Avenue just after 7 o'clock Wednesday night.  That's near east 2nd Street and North Cliff Avenue. 

This is the second time authorities searched this home.  Last month, three arrests were made and authorities found a large amount of pills used to make meth, cocaine, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.

Wednesday night, authorities only made one arrest.  Lester Estenson, who lives in the home, was arrested after authorities found a substantial amount of drugs, a gun and money inside the home.  Estenson faces several charges including possession of controlled substance, intent to distribute and maintaining a residence where drugs are used.

Authorities are telling us that during a typical drug bust about 2 grams of meth are usually confiscated.  But Wednesday night's raid turned up more than 45 grams plus $8,000 in cash.
