DULUTH, MN — Duluth Police have arrested two people, including one who was wanted on felony third degree murder, after an apartment search.
According to Duluth Police, the arrests happened while Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force searched an apartment on the 200 block of E. 2nd Street shortly before 12:30 p.m. on July 24.
Police say Jamie McNeary, 50, and Darcy Maddox, 64, were both charged in St. Louis County Court after investigators seized meth, drug packaging, a digital scale, and a stun gun during the search.
McNeary had two active felony warrants at the time of his arrest. The warrants were for violation of supervised release for third degree murder, and 5th degree possession of a controlled substance.

According to police, McNeary now faces an additional 2nd degree sale of a controlled substance in a public housing zone charge.
Meanwhile, Maddox was charged for aiding and abetting 2nd degree sale of a controlled substance in a public housing zone, as well as felony possession by a prohibited person of a stun gun.
Officials say during the search, investigators seized meth, drug packaging, a digital scale, and a stun gun.
