Little Falls Man Collared On Drug Charge

A 58-year-old Little Falls man has been arrested for sale of prescription drugs.

The Morrison County Sheriff's Office and Central Minnesota Drug and Gang Task Force have taken Gene Heurung into custody. 

According to the complaint, Heurung began selling large numbers of Oxycodone last November from his home at 405 3rd Street NE, Little Falls.

When officers arrested Heurung in Little Falls, he was also found to be in possession of 24-Morphine pills.
Sheriff Michel Wetzel says Heurung was being prescribed large amounts of pain killers such as Oxycodone and selling them almost immediately after having the prescriptions filled.   He said, “This is a prime example of why we need to work cooperatively with local doctors to ensure that only those people who need and are taking these pain killers are getting them prescribed.”

Heurung is currently in custody in the Morrison County Jail pending formal charges.
