A man and woman are facing felony drug sale charges after Mankato police responded to a report of a fight.

Robert Eugene Zuehlke, 42, of Mankato, and Brookelyn Christine Glackler, 22, of Waseca, were each charged Tuesday with counts of felony 1st-degree drug sales and 1st-degree drug possession in Blue Earth County Court.

A criminal complaint says police responded to a Mankato residence Feb 13 to a report of a man and woman fighting in a car.

Police say they arrived on the scene to find Zuehlke yelling at Glackler, with whom he is prohibited from having contact with because of a domestic assault no contact order.

Zuehlke and Glackler told police the argument was verbal, not physical, according to the complaint.  As he spoke to the pair, the responding officer noticed a glass pipe with attached rubber tubing, according to the complaint.  Police say the device is called a “hot rail,” an apparatus for ingesting meth.

A search of the vehicle unearthed more than six ounces (180 g) of meth, according to the complaint.

Investigators say they also discovered empty Ziploc baggies, glass smoking pipes, two vials of suspected marijuana oil, two hot rails, a green substance consistent with marijuana, a snorting pen, Narcan, and nine pills marked M30.

Police also discovered Glackler had a felony warrant for her arrest out of Nicollet County.  She also faces a gross misdemeanor 5th-degree drug possession charge.

Zuehlke has also been charged with felony 5th-degree drug possession and gross misdemeanor domestic abuse.
