Charges: Grenade launcher, explosives among weapons found at Red Wing man's home
A Red Wing man is facing weapons and drug charges after authorities found a large stash of ammunition, accessories and weapons, including a grenade launcher, at his home.
According to court records, Chad Vernon Glasby, 39, is charged with two counts of firearm possession by a person convicted of a crime of violence and one count of fifth-degree drug possession.
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.
Investigators also found two digital scales and a plastic bag that tested positive for methamphetamine.
The complaint states authorities found several other items, including a concrete saw and zip wall construction poles that appeared to have been stolen.
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.
His preliminary bail was set at $1 million.
