Man faces felony drug charge for powdered ecstasy

Colin Michael Keane, 22, of 1071 22nd Ave. S.E., Minneapolis has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony fifth-degree controlled substance crime -- possession.

On Wednesday, a trooper pulled him over on Highway 59 because his automobile windows appeared to be tinted too dark according state law, the registration was obscured on his license plate and there were objects hanging from his rear-view mirror.

The officer allegedly smelled marijuana and a search of the vehicle allegedly revealed a glass pipe with marijuana residue and about .7 grams of marijuana, as well as two plastic baggies of powdered ecstasy weighing a total of 1.4 grams.

He appeared Thursday before District Judge Lisa Borgen, who set cash bail at $200 or bond at $2,000 and set his next court appearance for Aug. 24.
