Sgt. Tim Toomey tells The Public Opinion newspaper that men from Omaha, Neb, and Grand Forks, N.D., and a woman from Hallock, Minn., were arrested late Wednesday outside the local Wal-Mart. He says authorities seized a large amount of Oxycontin, drug paraphernalia and $1,400 in cash.

Charged are Justen Johnson and Damien Williams, both from Grand Forks, and Karla Jo Gatheridge of Hallock.

The drug bust involved local police and state crime agents from South Dakota and Minnesota.
