Eagan man faces drug charges

A 25-year-old Eagan man faces felony drug charges and misdemeanor charges of violating a no-contact order following an incident Feb. 4 in Rosemount.

The no-contact order was filed against Eric Daniel Erdman in May of 2010.

According to a complaint filed last week in the Dakota County Attorney's office a Rosemount police officer came into contact with Erdman around 2 a.m. Feb. 4 after noticing a car driving about 4 miles per hour in a 55 mile-per-hour zone on County Road 42. The officer followed as the car turned onto Highway 52 and identified Erdman as the passenger. The driver was the individual with whom Erdman was prohibited to have contact.

The officer arrested Erdman and during a search found a methamphetamine pipe.

If convicted on the drug charge Erdman could face up to five years in jail and fines of up to $10,000. The charge for violating the no-contact order has a maximum sentence of 90 days and a maximum fine of $1,000.
