Couple Faces Drug Charges After Calling Police

December 15, 2011, 4:52 PM by Shawn Neisteadt

Couple Faces Drug Charges After Calling Police
SIOUX FALLS, SD - It started as a call for help. A Sioux Falls couple said two men with a gun invaded their home.  But the victims were the only ones who ended up behind bars.

When police searched for the armed men, authorities say they found enough marijuana, meth and drug paraphernalia to arrest 31-year-old Aaron Hudecek and 32-year-old Jaime Hudacek on numerous charges.

The couple is accused of dealing drugs and of putting their two children, ages 6 and 11, in danger.

Officers thought they were coming to the central Sioux Falls home to investigate a burglary with a gun.

"At that time, I'm sure their thoughts are mainly on safety on their part and their children, which lead to us being called," Detective Sean Kooistra said.

But when officers searched the home for any sign of the intruders, they noticed some suspicious items.
Police got a search warrant and ended up arresting the couple on several meth and marijuana-related charges. They placed the couple's two children in protective custody.

"The danger that people are putting their children into by having a place such as that and having that type of stuff inside the home, they're putting those children at a tremendous risk," Detective Kooistra said.

Detective Sean Kooistra says the arrested couple won't say much about the home invasion, leaving police with only vague descriptions of the two black men. While officers continue to investigate that portion of this case, they say it's possible the burglary could be related to the drugs found inside the home.

"I'm not exactly sure if that is the absolute connection or if it is something else, but I will admit that when I heard this story too, on the outside, that's the way it certainly appears," Detective Kooistra said.

But that, and the rest of this case is still under investigation.

KELOLAND News talked to some neighbors in the area who say they noticed some suspicious activity at the home, but never enough to prompt them to call authorities. Police say the couple did not give any money to the suspected burglars before the two men took off.
