Rum found after Dakota County lockdown

The Dakota County Government Center was on lockdown for half an hour this morning because of a report of a man with a gun. No one found a gun, but they did find booze.

Tim Harlow at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Fearing that a man who had just been released from jail the night before was back with a gun, authorities on Thursday morning placed the Dakota County Government Center on lockdown for about 30 minutes.

A cursory search turned up no gun, but deputies found the 37-year-old intoxicated man, who had been booked earlier for fifth-degree assault, was carrying an unopened bottle of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, the sheriff’s office said.
