Minneapolis firefighter accused of selling drugs at station

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minneapolis firefighter is accused of repeatedly selling drugs at his fire station.

Court affidavits say Larry Wajda sold methamphetamine to undercover police informants at the fire station across from the University of Minnesota's football stadium even while he was awaiting trial on drug charges in Anoka County.

The 20-year veteran of the Minneapolis Fire Department made an appearance in Hennepin County District Court Thursday and was transferred to the Anoka County Jail.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press says the 42-year-old Coon Rapids man is facing charges of possessing meth and receiving stolen property in Anoka County. Wajda was free on bond when he was arrested in the Minneapolis case. He's charged with drug possession in Hennepin County.
