District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Rodney Gene Vega Jr., 20, of Pennock, made his first appearance Monday on two felony charges, for third-degree drug sale and for storing methamphetamine paraphernalia in the presence of a child.

Unconditional bail was set at $30,000 with conditional bail at $2,000. His next appearance is June 28.

According to the paraphernalia charge, CEE-VI Drug Task Force agents were conducting surveillance Friday on a Willmar residence. They were looking for Vega, who had a warrant on the drug sale charge. They observed Vega come to a window and look out at the street. The officers went to the door, where they asked a woman if Vega was there. She went to get him. Also present at the time were three children, ages 10, 5 and an infant. When Vega was searched, officers found a glass pipe on him. It tested positive for meth.

The drug sale charge stems from the alleged purchase of 2.5 grams of meth by a CEE-VI informant on Nov. 11, 2008. According to the complaint, the informant bought the drugs from Vega at a trailer in Regency West. The drugs were tested by the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and determined to be meth weighing 2.5 grams.
