Lindstrom charged with selling heroin

Christian Lee Lindstrom, 20, Little Falls, was charged Nov. 14  in Morrison County District Court with one felony count of third degree sale of a narcotic.

In August, a confidential informant (CI) reported to the Central Minnesota Violent Offenders Task Force that heroin could be purchased from Lindstrom.

The CI was supplied with buy money and told to make the purchase. Officers observed the CI walk to a predetermined location in Little Falls and meet with a man believed to be Lindstrom.

The two parted about a minute later. The CI and officers met at another location and packages of suspected heroin were turned over to law enforcement.

On Nov. 13, Lindstrom was placed under arrest. He allegedly admitted he used heroin and probably had sold the drug 20-30 times.

If convicted, Lindstrom faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine.
