Woman sentenced in record meth bust

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Tiffany Gauthier pleaded guilty in October and has now been sentenced to 60 months prison and two years probation.

Authorities confiscated more than $300,000 worth of meth in what's being called the largest meth bust ever in southeast Minnesota.

It lead to charges against Gauthier and Steven Lindquist. Investigators believe both were involved in sales in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

In May of 2019, federal investigators recovered a rental pickup truck connected to Lindquist from Gauthier's driveway in southwest Rochester.

The truck contained about 50 pounds of meth inside a hidden compartment.

Lindquist also pleaded guilty in October. He is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
