WILLMAR - A local man and woman face felony charges for allegedly having methamphetamine and methamphetamine paraphernalia in the presence of children.
Jeremy Scott Bogle, 39, and Hannah Marie Prairie, 25, had first appearances August 20 in Kandiyohi County District Court and were in court again this week.
Both face fifth-degree felony counts for drug possession and both also face a felony charge for storing methamphetamine paraphernalia in the presence of a child, misdemeanor drug possession, and a petty misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Unconditional bail was set at $30,000 and conditional bail was set at $5,000 for Bogle’s charges.
Bogle posted a $5,000 conditional bond on Aug. 22.
According to the complaint, the CEE-VI Drug and Gang Task Force conducted a search warrant on a residence Aug. 18 on the 9800 block of 90th Avenue Southeast in Lake Lillian and arrived to find Bogle and Prairie at the residence.
The task force found methamphetamine paraphernalia and substances that tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the complaint.
A woman reported to the police that her three children were living at the residence with Bogle, her ex-husband, and Prairie.
According to the complaint, both Bogle and Prairie are homeless, but said they have been staying at the residence. Bogle said he used methamphetamine the day before with Prairie.
Bogle also faces a charge of felony domestic assault by strangulation for an incident that allegedly occurred July 5 on the 800 block of Campbell Avenue Northwest in Willmar.
Police were called to the scene and arrived to find a woman crying and panting, with swollen eyes and a bruised neck.
She said Bogle grabbed her by the throat and choked her.
