Man appears for sale of marijuana

A Detroit Lakes man made his first appearance Wednesday in Becker County District Court on two felony counts of fourth degree sale of a controlled substance.

James Michael Gilbert, 19, of 207 Laura Ave., Detroit Lakes, was accused after a search warrant executed at his residence on Feb. 16 yielded multiple Ziploc bags containing a green, leafy substance later identified as almost 60 grams of marijuana. Also located at the residence were marijuana plants, drug paraphernalia and a digital scale.

Gilbert's next court appearance is slated for March 30. His bail has been set at $500 cash or $5,000 bond, posted Feb. 25.
