North Mankato Drug Bust Plea 22 Jun 13

One of the people arrested in a drug bust in North Mankato recently has pleaded guilty to a felony count of 3rd-degree possession. Under the terms of the plea deal, three other felony counts against 47-year-old Cassie Jean Lillo will be dismissed. Authorities raided the home on Lake Street in North Mankato last month after reports that the residents were selling crack cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana. Officers reportedly found substantial amounts of illegal drugs and paraphernalia in the home, and have also charged 31-year-old Brandon Lee Nagel and 31-year-old Marlow Shelton McDonald. Lillo’s sentencing has now been set for July 24th. Nagel is due back in court on July 3rd, and McDonald is scheduled to make his next court appearance on July 29th. Neither of them have entered pleas yet.
