DL man facing drug charge

A Detroit Lakes man appeared Monday in Becker County District Court on a felony charge of fifth degree drug possession.

Wayne Allen Kohler, 39, of 303 Summit Ave., Detroit Lakes, was allegedly found in possession of a plastic baggie containing about .85 grams of methamphetamine, along with a small red straw, according to the criminal complaint.

The alleged incident occurred at around 2:35 a.m. on Jan. 21, court records state; a police officer had come to his residence to arrest him on an active warrant for an unrelated charge.

Kohler is currently in custody at the Becker County Jail, awaiting his next court appearance at a Feb. 24 omnibus hearing.

His bail was set at $20,000 with conditions, or $50,000 without conditions.
