Vikings superfan “Sir Death” busted in drug raid.

A superfan of the Minnesota Vikings, who goes by the nickname “Sir Death” is facing multiple drug charges after he was purportedly connected to hundreds of pounds of marijuana that was discovered earlier this month.

According to the Pioneer Press, 44-year-old Karl R. Heinrichs, aka ‘Sir Death,’ was charged in St. Croix County Circuit Court on felony THC possession with the intention to deliver.

In early September, an anonymous tip directed Washington County investigators to Heinrichs’ residence. A search warrant was issued, and police raided his home where 153 grams of weed and marijuana wax was reportedly found.

Investigators later followed Heinrichs to his house where they observed him transferring a Vikings cooler and a black bag into a Jeep.

The Jeep was pulled over by police and a search of the vehicle revealed over 31 pounds of marijuana and nine pounds of marijuana wax.

“Sir Death” was later taken into custody and confessed to keeping weed in a storage unit in Houlton, Wisconsin.

Law enforcement officials then confiscated approximately 134 pounds of what is presumed to be marijuana from that storage unit.

Heinrichs told investigators he used the drug proceeds to purchase Vikings season tickets and merchandise, arcade games, pinball machines, and tattoos.

Heinrichs is a part of the Vikings World Order — which is a club of hardcore fans.
