Detroit Lakes man given jail, probation

A Detroit Lakes man was sentenced Thursday on a felony drug charge in Becker County District Court.

Gary Michael Haugen, 18, of 1215 Long Ave., Apartment 305 in Detroit Lakes, was given a stayed prison sentence on conditions including up to five years of supervised probation, 30 days in jail and payment of $1,215 in court fines and fees.

The charge stemmed from a Jan. 9, 2009, incident in which a search warrant was executed at Haugen's home. During the search, approximately 1.5 pounds of marijuana and $900 in cash (U.S. currency) was found.
