HOWARD LAKE, MN – Michael Richard Neuman, 24, of Howard Lake was arrested April 11 around 12:06 p.m. in Buffalo on a felony charge after violating probation on a Wright County warrant for fifth degree drug possession of a controlled substance, according to the criminal complaint.
The probation was the result of an earlier incident in Feb. 2016 in which a sheriff’s deputy had pulled Neumann’s vehicle over for driving 36 mph in a 30 mph zone on Pulaski Road near Douglas Drive in Buffalo.
While conversing with Neumann, the deputy noticed some marijuana in the front passenger seat. In searching the vehicle, the deputy also found a plastic bag containing 35 pink tablets, identified as Oxycodone, in a space under the gear shifter.
Oxycodone is a schedule II controlled substance.
It appears Neumann did not have a prescription to process the pills lawfully, according to the formal complaint.
A maximum sentence of five years, a fine of $10,000, or both is possible for the offense.
