'Substantial' Amount Of Meth Found During Arrest

December 6, 2012, 5:59 AM

Lester Estenson

Sioux Falls police have arrested a man on drug charges for the second time in less than a month.

The Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force served a Federal search warrant at 816 N. French Avenue just after 7 p.m. Wednesday.  They found a substantial amount of meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia and also seized a firearm and some cash.

The homeowner, Lester Estenson, was arrested on various federal drug charges including possession of a controlled substance and possession with the intent to distribute it.

Police also arrested Estenson during a drug bust at his home on November 8.  That's when the drug task force found what police called a "huge amount" of pills to make meth.
