DETROIT LAKES -- A Detroit Lakes man was sentenced to 58 months in prison Wednesday on a drug possession charge.

Wynhoff was charged in connection with a Sept. 3, 2008 incident in which special agents of the West Central Minnesota Drug Task Force searched his home after receiving a tip that he might be manufacturing meth on his property.

During the search, the agents recovered over 25 grams of a substance that later tested positive as meth, along with multiple items related to its manufacture, including containers of muriatic acid, partially burned cans that had once contained toulene solvent, a gram scale, coffee filters, razor blades and more.
