WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - A four-month drug investigation by law enforcement officials in three states has resulted in the arrest of a Minnesota man.

The Daily News of Wahpeton reports that 32-year-old Jessie Gruettner, of Browns Valley, Minnesota, was arrested earlier this month at a casino in southeastern North Dakota. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney, and a home telephone listing couldn't be found.

Authorities in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota conducted the investigation. They allege that undercover officers bought more than 100 grams of methamphetamine with a street value of $20,000 from Gruettner.
