Man arrested for no license found with meth

ORONOCO — An Oronoco man may face charges after Olmsted County Sheriff’s deputies allegedly found methamphetamine on him after he was stopped for driving without a license or insurance.

At 8:28 a.m. Saturday, a deputy was driving behind a vehicle that he recognized from "previous law enforcement contacts," said Olmsted County Sheriff’s Capt. Scott Behrns. The deputy stopped 58-year-old Daniel Hennessey because he had reason to believe Hennessey was driving without a license or insurance, he said.

Behrns said it’s at least the third time in 10 years that Hennessey has been stopped for driving without insurance, so the deputy made the decision to arrest Hennessey.

After Hennessey was transported to the Adult Detention Center, they found 1.25 grams of methamphetamine on him, Behrns said.

Hennessey may face charges for no insurance, a gross misdemeanor, driving after revocation, a misdemeanor, and fifth-degree controlled substance possession, a felony, according to Behrns.
