ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - A suspected drug dealer wanted on a warrant was tased at his work when police went to arrest him.

A member of the Central Minnesota Violent Offenders Task Force saw Shawn Lawrence Jacobs working at a St. Cloud Subway on Tuesday and knew he had a warrant for his arrest on a felony domestic assault charge.

The criminal complaint states police learned the St. Cloud man had two guns and was selling drugs out of the Subway restaurant, his car, and his home. Court records didn't say which Subway he worked at.

Police say when they went to arrest the 32-year-old at the Subway he resisted and was tased.

Court files state that his work locker was searched and police found prescription drugs and two different types of handgun ammunition.

Investigators say they then searched his house and found miscellaneous drug paraphernalia, a small amount of methamphetamine, LSD, marijuana edibles, and marijuana wax.

He is charged with one count of being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition four counts of 5th degree possession of a controlled substance.

Jacobs has a prior domestic assault conviction from 2008 and a conviction for assault with a knife in August of 2013.
