DL man charged with possession of ATV

Eric James Warren, 21, of 16465 Highland Drive, Detroit Lakes has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony receiving stolen property.

According to court records, he allegedly had possession of a red and black Polaris Sportsman 500 ATV that had been stolen April 17 in the Ponsford area.

It was located behind a residence in Becker County, and a witness allegedly indicated Warren had been driving it. He came out of the house, ignored an officer’s command to stop, then took off running, according to court records. He was found hiding in a pile of junk. The value of the ATV is more than $5,000.

He appeared April 20 before District Judge Jay Carlson, who set bond at $2,000 or cash bail at $250 with standard conditions of release, or $10,000 bond or bail for release with no conditions.

An omnibus hearing was set for May 11.
