Rochester Man Facing Drug, Weapons Charges
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- A Rochester man is facing charges for felony drug possession and a weapons violation after authorities executed a search warrant at his home.
40-year-old Timothy Loftus was arraigned in Olmsted County Court on Monday. The criminal complaint states law enforcement recovered a loaded semi-automatic 9mm handgun that police determined to be stolen out of Dodge County. Officers also discovered over 26 grams of a substance that presumptively tested positive methamphetamine during the search on June 23.
Court records show Loftus was convicted of manufacturing/delivering meth in Wisconsin in 2016. That conviction makes him ineligible to possess a firearm. His next court date is in August.
