DL man with active warrant in court for fugitive charge

A Detroit Lakes man appeared recently in Becker County District Court on a felony fugitive from justice charge.

Kenneth Edward Hampshire, 25, of 20304 County Road 21, Detroit Lakes, was behind the wheel of a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic violation in Becker County on Feb. 3.

It was subsequently discovered that Hampshire was wanted on an active warrant in Cass County, North Dakota, on charges of burglary and property theft.

Hampshire signed a waiver of extradition at his initial court appearance, agreeing to be escorted by law enforcement officers to face the charges against him in North Dakota.
