DL teen faces drug possession charge

A Detroit Lakes juvenile has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony drug possession.

Brent Lee Ulness, 16, of 1069 North Shore Drive, Detroit Lakes, pleaded innocent to the charge on Aug. 24.

The charge stems from an Aug. 18 incident in which the Detroit Lakes Police Department was called by Becker County Human Services to assist with the questioning of a teenager suspected of having drugs in his car.

After speaking with Ulness, the officers searched his car and found four Xanax and six Valium pills, for which he did not have a prescription.

Ulness has been placed in custody at a juvenile detention facility in Moorhead pending his next court appearance at a Sept. 7 pretrial hearing.
