A search warrant executed last week at a town of Superior residence on County Highway C resulted in drug charges against two Minnesota residents and one man from Seattle, Wash.

Gary Earl Kmett, 53, of Keewatin and Melissa Anne Reasoner, 44, of Two Harbors in Minnesota, and Shawn Lee Hanson, 39, of Seattle, each face a felony charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. All three made initial appearances Sept. 23 in Douglas County Circuit Court. Reasoner and Hanson waived their preliminary hearings Wednesday and were bound over for arraignment in November. Kmett's next court appearance is Oct. 12. Cash bail of $1,000 was set for Kmett; cash bail of $500 was set for Reasoner and Hanson.

According to the criminal complaint:

Investigators from the Douglas County Sheriff's Department executed a search warrant Sept. 22 at the town of Superior residence. Hanson was found in the living room. He told investigators he had been staying in Two Harbors, but that they moved to the Superior residence two days ago. Inside a lockbox belonging to Hanson, investigators found a marijuana grinder and digital scale. In a suitcase with Hanson's name on it, a homemade meth smoking device was found.

Reasoner and Kmett were found in the loft area of the home's garage. A glass pipe, scale and several small jeweler's baggies with meth residue on them were found in the loft. Reasoner allegedly told investigators that she and Kmett had both smoked meth at the residence.
