Two Mora men face felony drug charges

Two Mora men are facing felony drug charges following the sale of methamphetamine to an undercover officer.

Jack Allen Douglas, 24, and Daniel Eric Braun, 25, were charged in 10th District Court in Cambridge, March 17, with two counts of felony first degree drug sales within a 90-day period. Braun faces an additional charge of felony second degree drug possession.

P. Hunter Anderson set bail for both men at $80,000 without conditions, and $40,000 with conditions, and included a no contact order with each other.

According to the criminal complaint, Douglas and Braun sold 29.5 grams of methamphetamine to an undercover officer over a 90-day period within Kanabec and Isanti counties.

At the time of his arrest, Braun possessed 12.2 grams of methamphetamine.

Douglas and Braun first met with the undercover officer on March 14 at a restaurant in Mora, where they sold him an eight-ball (3.8 grams) in an empty plastic sandwich bag for $250.

The parties agreed they would meet the next day, March 15, for the sale of the additional ounce (25.7 grams) of methamphetamine, at a cost of $1,750. The sale took place at a restaurant in Isanti.

Douglas’ next court appearance is scheduled for April 13, and Braun’s for April 27.

Kanabec County and Chisago County sheriff’s department assisted the Isanti County Sheriff’s Department with the investigation.
