The officer asked for back up from Rice County and a K-9 unit arrived. The passenger, 30 year old Nicholas Reinhardt of Lakeville, was asked if he had any needles on him. He said he was holding one in his front pocket for a friend. A broken needle was also found on Renteria. Reinhardt removed his sweatshirt and still had a blue band tied around his arm with fresh track marks and dried blood. Officers found meth and pipes in the vehicle. Renteria also told the officer that the person who put drugs in the car also sprinkled “M” on the floor. They’re both charged with 5th degree controlled substance.
