WADENA - A man is charged with felony drug possession after four pounds of meth with an estimated street value of $200,000 was discovered in a package being delivered to a Wadena home.
Wadena County Sheriff Michael Carr received information from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension about a suspicious package that was being mailed from Arizona to a residence in Wadena. Officers received a search warrant for the package after it was learned the intended recipient was not associated with the residence and found meth inside it. A controlled delivery was conducted and Michael Gino-Ladon Ricks, 27, of Hanover Park, Ill., was arrested at the home for felony first degree possession of a controlled substance, Carr reported. Ricks is being held on $500,000 bond without conditions or $30,000 cash bail with conditions set by the court. He was still listed as in custody on the Wadena County online inmate list as of Tuesday morning.
