Man pleads to felony for possessing meth at home for vulnerable adults

WILLMAR -- Jacob Scott Forbord, 24, of Willmar, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of fifth-degree controlled substance for possessing methamphetamine while working at a home for vulnerable adults.

As part of a plea agreement reached in Kandiyohi County District Court, another fe-lony for storing meth paraphernalia in the presence of vulnerable adults will be dismissed and he will receive a stay of adjudication on his sentence. He will be sentenced May 11.

The charges were filed after an employee of Divine House called the Willmar police around 10:50 p.m. Jan. 7 to report he had attempted to enter the residence, but found the door locked.

An officer and Divine House supervisor, who had a key to the home, responded. They entered to find Forbord asleep and a meth pipe on the countertop.

He was awakened and allegedly admitted the pipe was his and that he had meth stashed in the console area of his car.

Officers did find a bag with a substance that tested positive as meth in the vehicle.

The complaint also notes that a vulnerable adult was present next to Forbord when he was found asleep in the home.
