Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

Benjamin Anthony Ruther, 22, of Perham, was sentenced in Otter Tail County District Court on April 11 for drug possession.

Ruther’s sentence relates to an incident in Perham last July when, according to court records, a search warrant was conducted at his residence and authorities found methamphetamine pipes in his bedroom.

One of the pipes later tested positive for meth.

Ruther was ordered to serve 13 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud, Minn. Information about credit for time already served was not readily available before press time.
