Seven men charged in Mankato drug case



Dittrich told investigators he would buy about a quarter pound of marijuana each month for about $900, according to the criminal complaint. He allegedly said he would sell about half the marijuana to support his habit and use the other half.

Cody Wade Nelson, 23, and Michael Ward Fletcher, 24, were charged with felony fifth-degree drug possession. A plastic straw with cocaine residue was allegedly found in Nelson’s room.

Fletcher told investigators he didn’t live at the house, but had slept there the night before. Investigators reported he admitted to buying marijuana from someone in the house, but wouldn’t identify which resident.
