Former Deputy Charged with Stalking BSA Agents 21 Apr 17

A former Roseau County deputy was charged with stalking Wednesday after allegedly harassing Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agents through text messages.

Joshua McGurran Olson, 36, was arrested earlier this month in Clearwater County and is currently being held in the Roseau County jail. According to the complaint, the stalking began after the two agents investigated Olson in 2016 after he was accused of “shooting up” a cabin in Roseau County.

Following his conviction of a felony and the loss of his job as a deputy, he seemed to harbor resentment against the Bureau and began harassing the two agents. The report goes on to indicate Olson allegedly sent threatening messages to one of the agents’ family members and claimed another agent was a sex offender.

Olson was eventually arrested at his fathers’ home in Clearwater County and is awaiting a court appearance.
