DL man to appear on drug charges

A Detroit Lakes man will make his first appearance July 6 in Becker County District Court on felony drug charges.

Joshua John Erickson, 27, of 311 Pelican River Road, Detroit Lakes, is facing one count of fifth degree sale of a controlled substance, and one count of fifth degree possession of a controlled substance.

The charges stem from a Jan. 8, 2009 incident in which he allegedly sold marijuana to a law enforcement informant in Becker County. A search warrant was subsequently executed at his home on Jan. 9, and large quantities of marijuana (over 60 grams total) were found.
