DETROIT LAKES, MN--A Detroit Lakes man faces a misdemeanor charge for selling a vape product to an 8th-grader on Thursday across from the Middle School. Court records say Detroit Lakes Police were able to identify the 18 year old male from video of the exchange that took place across the street from the school around 3:30pm on May 16th. The male was sitting in a parked car on Central Avenue when an 8th-grade girl runs to the vehicle, returns to the school, and the vehicle drives away. According to court documents, the girl paid $5.00 for a Juul pod and the meeting had been set up through Snapchat. The 18 year old male received a citation from Detroit Lakes Police for the misdemeanor charge of providing a tobacco or vape product to a minor. His first court appearance is June 10th.
