Ogema man gets prison for heroin and meth

Teddy Raymond Millage Jr., 26, of rural Ogema, has been sentenced in Becker County District Court for felony fifth-degree controlled substance crime.

A second felony charge of fifth-degree controlled substance crime was dropped in a plea agreement.

According to court records, on Feb. 4, 2017, law enforcement officers were looking for a red passenger car believed to be carrying a forgery suspect. Millage's car was pulled over on Highway 59 in Detroit Lakes, and several drug pipes were seen in plain view inside the vehicle. Officers searched the car and found a tenth of a gram of heroin in the vehicle, and a tenth of a gram of meth was found in his belongings.

On Jan. 15, Millage appeared before District Judge Jay Carlson, who issued an amended court decision and ordered him to serve 13 months in prison at St. Cloud and pay $1,165 in court fees.
