UPDATE: Meeker Co. authorities searching for armed man

MEEKER COUNTY, MN – The man the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office had been searching for is now in custody, according to a press release issued this morning (Dec. 31).

The Meeker County Sheriff’s Office received a tip at about 8 p.m. last night (Dec. 30) that Anthony Kalland was back at the CSAH 16 residence where the standoff took place Dec. 27. Shortly before 10 p.m., Kalland was taken into custody without further incident.

Deputies searched the residence and found a loaded revolver, ammunition, and a small quantity of methamphetamine.

Anyone with information on where Kalland has been over the past several days is urged to call the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office. The investigation regarding who helped Kalland evade law enforcement is ongoing.

Kalland is being held in the Meeker County Jail pending his first court appearance. The Meeker County Sheriff’s Office received numerous tips during this investigation. Meeker County Sheriff Brian Cruze appreciates the public for their assistance in locating Kalland.


This is the original post regarding the Dec. 27 incident:

The Meeker County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man who allegedly brandished a revolver at a residence in Harvey Township Dec. 27.

Information from the sheriff’s office press release is as follows:

The sheriff’s office received a 911 call from a residence in the 58400 block of CSAH 16, in Harvey Township in reference to a domestic situation. The caller said a male, later identified as Anthony Steven Kalland, 38, of Brainerd, had brandished a revolver.

The caller fled the residence and deputies responded. Deputies confirmed Kalland was at the residence and a perimeter was established. Kalland failed to respond to deputies on scene.

The Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office tactical and negotiation teams were called in for assistance. Contact was made with Kalland, but he refused to communicate or comply throughout the afternoon.

The standoff continued into the evening, and Kalland used the cover of darkness to sneak through an outer perimeter line and flee the scene. Deputies and Litchfield Police searched multiple locations that Kalland went to after leaving the CSAH 16 residence.

A search warrant on the CSAH 16 residence was executed. A stolen vehicle, ammunition and drug paraphernalia was recovered, but the firearm was not located.

Kalland is wanted on charges of domestic assault, felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen vehicle. Kalland also has three outstanding felony warrants out of Crow Wing, Sherburne and Renville counties.

Kalland is considered armed and potentially dangerous. Anyone with information on Kalland’s whereabouts is asked to call the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office at 320-693-5400. If anyone sees Kalland, they should immediately call 911. Do not approach him.
