Champlin man pleads guilty after 76,000 THC vape cartridges seized in 2019

A Champlin man has pleaded guilty after authorities seized over 76,000 THC vaping cartridges from a home in 2019.

Valentin Andonii, 25, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree controlled substance crime and one count of marijuana and controlled substance taxation.

Andonii was arrested in 2019 after the Northwest Metro Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at a residence on the 3600 block of Coon Rapids Boulevard NW, which was confirmed to be Andonii’s home. During that search, authorities reported finding 76,972 THC vaping cartridges, which were valued at more than $3 million.

Andonii’s sentencing is set for March 25.
