Drug bust ends in three arrests

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- This was a planned drug bust, but what authorities may not have expected was the chase that followed.

The bust was being handled by the Southeast Minnesota Drug Task Force. It was set up to be a buy bust, which just means an undercover officer would attempt to buy an illegal substance and at the point an arrest would be made.

The situation began in St. Charles and when an arrest was attempted but the individual fled. The pursuit started in St. Charles, went to Chatfield, and ended in Rochester. One person was the target of this operation but three people were taken into custody Monday night.

Authorities say more information will be available Tuesday morning.
