Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

A Lake Park man appeared in Becker County District Court late last week on a felony drug possession charge.

Joshua Scott Haugen, 27, is also facing a misdemeanor theft charge in connection with the March 10 incident, in which he was arrested for shoplifting at a Detroit Lakes store.

After he was arrested, a clear plastic bag containing methamphetamine was found inside a flashlight that was found on him.

He is in custody pending his next court appearance at a March 24 omnibus hearing.
