Suspects in Danube raid identified

Hearings have been set for later this month for three people arrested with drugs, guns, and explosives in Danube last week.

Michael Voelz, age 45, is charged with four drug-related crimes, including possession of drugs with a child present. His next court appearance is set for September 17th.

Marie Letourneau, age 32, faces three drug charges and a weapons charge and her next court appearance is September 23rd.

A third person, an unidentified man from Belgrade, was also arrested during the raid last Wednesday at the home on Highway 212 in Danube, and has a hearing set for September 24th on gross misdemeanor drug possession charges.

In the home, officers found near one-and-a-half pounds of meth, hallucinogenic mushrooms, several weapons including a pistol with a silencer, and a pipe bomb which was detonated by the Bloomington Bomb Squad.

A 3-year-old boy was also found in the house and was taken into protective custody by Renville County Family Services.
