Big Nicollet County Drug Bust 21 Jun 13

Two Nicollet County men are facing multiple felony charges for allegedly possessing heroin and cocaine, as well as nearly $2,000 in counterfeit currency. Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force agents executed a search warrant on the North Mankato home of 27-year-old Geramy Durell Hopson after receiving several tips that he was dealing drugs, and arrested him and his brother, 27-year-old Isaiah Derrick Cooper-Jackson. A search of the apartment turned up over 4 grams of heroin, more than 7 grams of cocaine, over $1,600 in counterfeit cash, and various items of drug paraphernalia. Both men have been charged with 8 felony counts, and will make their first appearance in Nicollet County Court this coming Tuesday.
