Two arrested after Red Lake fentanyl bust

Two are facing felony drug charges after a traffic stop on the Red Lake Reservation a little over a week ago.

The Red Lake Tribal Police Department says they conducted the traffic stop on Jan. 14, after receiving prior information that Katrina Oakgrove was selling fentanyl on the reservation.

Officers located 122 grams of a white powder that preliminarily tested positive for fentanyl, in addition to more than $20,000 in cash.
