Sentencing is set for May 30.

The case was investigated by the Lakes Area Drug Investigative Division who received a report that someone was growing marijuana in the woods near TCBX in Brainerd. Agents placed a game camera at the location and identified Fordyce as the individual watering and harvesting the plants in the photographs. Agents went to Fordyce’s residence in Brainerd, where he admitted growing the marijuana found in the woods. Agents executed a search warrant at his residence and found approximately 15 marijuana plants growing in a closet under makeshift grow lights, in addition to over 100 grams of processed marijuana.  

Previously, in October of 2002, a Crow Wing County jury found Fordyce guilty of fifth-degree sale of a controlled substance after he was caught growing marijuana on Potlatch land near Crosby.
