A Bricelyn man who allegedly sold a total of more than 20 grams of methamphetamine in two undercover operations was charged Thursday in Faribault County District Court.

Joshua Clark

Joshua William Clark, 42, is charged with a first-degree controlled substance sale crime.

Court documents state Clark was charged after the South Central Drug Task Force Unit and a confidential informant arranged to purchase meth from Clark Nov. 21.

The informant reportedly handed $440 to Clark in a vehicle in an Albert Lea parking lot. Clark reportedly came back to the parking lot in the vehicle and left nearly 7.5 grams of meth.

Court documents state Dec. 7, the task force and a confidential informant again arranged to purchase meth from Clark. In that incident, 14.4 grams of meth was reportedly sold for $700 at a Bricelyn business.

As of Monday morning, Clark was in custody.
