MAUSTON, Wis. - A Minnesota corrections officer faces the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison after being charged with possesion with intent to deliver cocaine.
A Wisconsin State Trooper came upon a vehicle pulled over on Interstate 90/94 in the Town of Lydon. Inside the vehicle was 52-year-old Randy S. Anderson of Stillwater.
The Minnesota Department of Corrections confirms that Anderson is a corrections officer at the Minnesota Corrections Facility in Stillwater. He has worked there for 21 years.
A criminal complaint says the trooper observed in plain view a "dugout/one hitter" pipe used to smoke marijuana. The trooper further searched the car and found more than 82 grams of cocaine (nearly 3 ounces), 7.7 grams of marijuana, a scale and a glass pipe for smoking crack cocaine or methamphetamine.
Anderson is now charged with possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, possession of THC, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Judge John Roemer set cash bond at $10,000 Monday and Anderson posted bond the same day, according to online court records.
