Two local men arrested on drug charges

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

In early July, officers from the New Prague Police Department and Le Sueur County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant that resulted in the arrest of two New Prague men.

On July 3, officers arrested Robert Walter Benjamin, 25, and Jason Stephen Gravon, 19, at 702 Horizon Drive SE in New Prague.

Sheriff Glisczinski said officers had been working on the case for about three months. They were informed that tenants at the location were selling controlled substances including marijuana and ecstasy. During the execution of the search warrant, investigators found approximately four ounces of marijuana and a large amount of cash.

Benjamin was arrested for fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance and Gravon for third-degree sale and fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance.

Both men were held at the Le Sueur County Law Enforcement Center after being arrested. They have been released and are scheduled to make their first court appearance next month.
