Red Wing man sentenced for possessing weapons, explosives
A Red Wing man has been sentenced after authorities found a large stash of ammunition, accessories and weapons, including a grenade launcher, at his home in April.
Court records show 40-year-old Chad Vernon Glasby was sentenced to five years (60 months) at the St. Cloud Correctional Facility for one count of unlawful possession of ammunition or a firearm. One other charge of unlawful possession of ammunition or a firearm and one count of fifth-degree drug possession were dismissed.
A criminal complaint states investigators executed a search warrant at Glasby’s home and found at least half a dozen weapons, including a 37mm "Blooper" mortar gun, grenades and explosive devices, a silencer, a laser level and assorted ammunition and magazines for firearms. They also found two digital scales and a plastic bag that tested positive for methamphetamine.
Glasby was stopped by a deputy and arrested. While being arrested, Glasby allegedly admitted to consuming "a couple grams probably" of meth right before being stopped.
