Unconditional bail was set at $300,000. His next appearance is March 21 in Kandiyohi County District Court.

According to the complaint, the informant told a CEE-VI agent on Jan. 19 that he could buy meth from a man he knew as "Nee Nee." The nickname was known to law enforcement as Guevara. The informant allegedly purchased 6.8 grams of meth on Jan. 19 and 7.4 grams on Jan. 26. Both deals happened at Guevara's home along the 700 block of Fifth Street Southwest.

Guevara has previous convictions for fifth-degree drug possession in November 2002 and two first-degree drug sale convictions in 2007 in Meeker and Kandiyohi counties.
