District Court

Kandiyohi County

n Steven Anthony Aguilar-Mota, 17, of St. Paul, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of receiving stolen property.

As part of a plea agreement, another felony for fifth-degree drug possession will be dismissed. His case was transferred to Ramsey County for disposition.

Felony charges against 16-and 17-year-old juveniles are public record.

Aguilar-Mota and Justin Paul Nelson, 25, of Lake Lillian, were both charged in the case. Nelson faces felony charges of fifth-degree drug possession, receiving stolen property, possession of a weapon by a person convicted of a violent crime and for storing methamphetamine paraphernalia in the presence of a child or vulnerable adult. His next appearance is Jan. 3.

Nelson also faces petty misdemeanors for possession of drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana.

According to the complaint against Nelson, CEEVI Drug Task Force agents were conducting a follow-up investigation Nov. 15 in the parking lot of the Lakeview Inn, along Business 71 North in Willmar. They noticed a vehicle with loud music and recognized the driver of the vehicle as Johnny Juan Molina, 28, of Willmar. Molina was taken into custody for driving on a revoked license and was searched, revealing a pipe with methamphetamine residue.

In an effort to identify Aguilar-Mota, whom agents saw walk up to Molina's vehicle, the agents knocked on a nearby motel room door. Nelson opened the door and was arrested on a Department of Corrections warrant.

Based on the drug paraphernalia, digital scale with drug residue and ammunition in plain sight in the hotel room, the agents were granted a search warrant for the room. They located a stolen .357-caliber Magnum revolver under the bed, a small amount of methamphetamine and marijuana and $2,080 in cash.

The gun was traced as a weapon stolen in 2007 in Swift County.
