MILNOR, N.D. -— Authorities in southeast North Dakota arrested two people and detained five illegal immigrants in a large drug bust.

Richland County authorities on Wednesday arrested a 33-year-old man who allegedly sold $21,000 worth of methamphetamine to undercover agents during a sting. A search of the man's mobile home on a farmstead near Milnor led to the arrest of a 23-year-old woman from Sisseton, S.D. Police say they also seized $6,600 in cash.

The illegal immigrants detained at the farm were turned over to federal immigration officials.
