DETROIT LAKES — Jose Anttonio Salinas, 24, of Perham, has had a felony fifth-degree drug charge dismissed in Becker County District Court because he met the conditions laid down by the court.

According to court records, on July 31, 2019, he was riding in a car pulled over by a state trooper for going 48 mph in a 40 mph zone near County Road 22 and West Lake Drive in Becker County. During the stop he was caught trying to run away with a backpack that contained a half-gram of meth. A drug-sniffing dog also sat on a backpack belonging to another passenger that contained 60 grams of marijuana.

On Jan. 2, 2020 Salinas was sentenced to 30 days in jail, with credit for five days served. He was fined $1,000 plus $1,075 in court fees, and was ordered to get chemical dependency and mental health evaluations and follow the recommendations.

He successfully completed supervised probation, and on July 12, the charge was dismissed and he was discharged from probation without an adjudication of guilt. In the same case, a misdemeanor fleeing-on-foot charge was dropped in a plea agreement.
