By Sheriff Tom Kaase

On April 15, 2016, at approximately 3:23 p.m., Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Dispatch Center received a report of a fire at 10517 County Road 113, Mabel, Minn. The address is located in an unincorporated community in Canton Township, referred to as Prosper. This same property borders US Hwy 52. The initial report was that of a grass fire that was getting into the house and shed that are located on the property. The Canton Fire Department responded and upon arriving on scene, also requested mutual aid assistance from the Mabel Fire Department, who also responded. The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office responded to conduct traffic control on Hwy 52 and was later assisted by the Minnesota State Patrol. Fillmore County Sheriff’s Investigators also arrived on scene to investigate.

On Monday, April 11, Fillmore County Sheriff’s Narcotics Investigator Jesse Grabau executed a narcotics search warrant at this same address, 10517 County Road 113, for evidence of suspected manufacturing of methamphetamine. Investigator Grabau was assisted by members of the Southeast Minnesota Violent Crime Enforcement Team and members of our sheriff’s office. As a result of this investigation and search warrant, a subsequent search warrant was obtained for an adjacent property of 10491 County Road 113, Mabel, Minn. As a result of this investigation, evidence of controlled substance crimes (the manufacturing of methamphetamine) was discovered and seized, and two arrests have been made. On Monday, April 11, Jeffrey George Torgerson, 48 years old, of 10517 County Road 113, was taken into custody. On Thursday April 14, Joan Elizabeth Torgerson, 40 years old, also of 10517 County Road 113, was also taken into custody. Jeffrey and Joan are married. Both Jeffrey and Joan have been arraigned in Fillmore County Court and are being held in the Fillmore County Detention Center.

The fire remains under investigation by the Minnesota State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office.
