3 arrested in Fairbury drug bust


Three people were arrested in Fairbury over the weekend after authorities discovered a suspected marijuana growing operation.

On Sunday morning, deputies with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant on a residence at 1014 A St. in Fairbury.

According to a press release from the department, three individuals were arrested at the residence. Kelly J. Anderson and Dustin A. Anderson were arrested for distribution of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and manufacturing a controlled substance. Robert A Mikkelson was also at the residence and was arrested for violation of a protection order.

Deputies discovered large amounts of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia, as well as a suspected marijuana grow operation and items consistent with the sale and distribution of a controlled substance.

Due to the condition of the residence, which contained large amounts of animal feces and other vermin, the house was subsequently condemned by the city of Fairbury and deemed unlivable.

Eight, dogs were removed from the residence and placed in the care of the city of Fairbury.

The case remains under investigation.
