A Detroit Lakes man has been charged in Becker County District Court with a felony count of motor vehicle theft.

Jeremy Alan Holder Jr., 25, of 404 E. State St., Detroit Lakes, allegedly stole a 1997 Chevy pickup from a Detroit Lakes muffler shop on April 11.

 According to the criminal complaint, the vehicle was found the next day on the Vergas Trails, slightly damaged and with no keys inside. Upon questioning, Holder allegedly admitted that he had taken the vehicle to get to a party, then abandoned it when it got stuck.

Holder has been released on his own recognizance pending his next court appearance, at a May 28 omnibus hearing.
