Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

Dale Richard Herk, 51, of Box 314 Vergas, has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony fifth-degree controlled substance crime, possession.

According to court records:

On Friday, a conservation officer at Dunton Locks County Park allegedly saw him engage in what appeared to be a drug sale involving two other men.

Herk was a passenger in the car that left the scene, and was stopped a short time later by a deputy, who searched the car and allegedly found 64 morphine pills in a plastic bag.

Herk appeared Monday before District Judge Joe Evans, who set bail or bond at $20,000 and set his next court appearance for Monday.
