RED LAKE COUNTY, Minn. ( – Lane Allen Anderson, a 27-year-old man from Red Lake Falls, has been charged with adulteration causing illness, pain, or bodily harm for allegedly mixing MDMA and methamphetamine into a vulnerable adult’s alcoholic drink. The incident occurred on November 6, and Anderson now faces up to 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.

The Red Lake County Sheriff’s Office received a call on November 7 from the Sanford Emergency Department in Thief River Falls, reporting a male who believed he had been poisoned by his sister and Anderson. The unidentified male underwent drug testing, revealing the presence of amphetamine, MDMA, THC, and methamphetamine.

The victim, who is autistic, recounted that Anderson and his sister offered him a drink, and Anderson mentioned having mixed various alcohols. After consuming the drink, the victim felt unwell, experiencing blurred memory, jitteriness, and vomiting. Concerned, he contacted his mother, who promptly took him to the emergency room.

During questioning, Anderson denied spiking the drink but tested positive for multiple substances, contradicting his claim of abstaining from MDMA for years. Later, on November 15, Anderson admitted to adding methamphetamine to the drink, asserting he informed the victim about it, alleging the victim had previous methamphetamine experience.

Anderson’s court appearance is scheduled for December 20.
