Bail set at $150,000 in drug case

Keith Joseph Hanks, 25, of 13879 Echo Park Court, Burnsville, has been charged with felony second-degree controlled substance crime, sale.

On Feb. 12, a confidential informant working for the White Earth Police Department and the Safe Trails Task Force allegedly agreed to buy half a gram of crack cocaine from Hanks for $50. The informant allegedly received a plastic knot-tied bag containing white rock-like substance that tested as a third-gram of cocaine.

Hanks appeared Friday before District Judge Peter Irvine, who set bond at $150,000 and set his next appearance for June 2.
