A search warrant on a Winona apartment yielded more than 200 grams of cocaine and large amounts of cash last week.
Police arrested Donovan Beckom, 20, of Winona, on four felony charges alleging he possessed over 25 grams of cocaine and sold it to a police informant in December.
The criminal complaint states Beckom sold over three grams of cocaine to a police informant on December 19 and 20. On December 21 police executed a search warrant at a Morningside Terrace Apartment where Beckom stayed.
The warrant found 222 grams of cocaine, about 25 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and $5,980 in cash at the residence.
Police arrested Beckom during a traffic stop later that day. During the stop police said they found $670 in cash on Beckom, including a $20 bill used by the informant during the controlled buys.
Beckom is expected to appear in court again on January 3.
