Unconditional bail was set at $30,000 with conditional bail allowed for $1,000. His next appearance is May 17.

The man who was selling the drugs received them from Torres and then passed them on to the informant. The drugs were turned over to law enforcement. The informant later identified Torres as the man who delivered the drugs. Analysis by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension showed the drugs were 2.8 grams of meth.
n Patricia Nancy Rosalie Peterson, 27, of Sauk Rapids, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a fifth-degree controlled substance possession charge for possessing 90 grams of marijuana on April 5 at Robbins Island Park in Willmar.
As part of a plea agreement, a third-degree drug possession charge and a petty misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia will be dismissed. She will be sentenced June 16.
The charges were filed after Peterson was arrested April 5 after a Department of Natural Resources conservation officer, who was using a spotting scope to check on fisherman, spotted her around 2:45 p.m. in a vehicle handling a gallon-sized plastic bag of marijuana and then smoking a joint at Robbins Island Park.
According to the complaint, the conservation officer stopped the vehicle, driven by another woman, and noticed a lot of movement by the occupants and then the smell of marijuana when the window was opened. A 17-year-old female juvenile passenger told CEE-VI Drug Task Force officers that all three women had been smoking marijuana. The driver said the drugs and paraphernalia belonged to Peterson.
A search of the vehicle revealed a total of 90 grams of marijuana, including the gallon-sized bag, the liquid Oxycodone, prescribed to another person, $370 in cash, pipes and a scale.
