Flashlight drug bust
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.
