ROCHESTER, Minn. – Police say he gave a fake name when he was arrested. He’s now pleading guilty to felony drug possession.

Lawrence Monroe Davis Jr., 41 of Rochester, entered a guilty plea Thursday to 5th degree drug possession. He was arrested March 11 after a Rochester police officer saw Davis in the 500 block of 6th Street NW and realized he was wanted on an outstanding warrant.

His sentencing is set for July 1.
