WILLMAR — The theft of an iPad and accessories was reported around 2:20 p.m. Wednesday along the 2000 block of 67th Street Southwest.


District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Geoffrey Alan Irwin, 21, of Willmar, was sentenced Thursday to 149 days in jail, five years of probation and $1,500 in fines on felony charges of terroristic threats and fifth-degree drug possession for a domestic incident on June 30 and for possessing methamphetamine.

Irwin was also ordered to have no contact with the domestic assault victim and follow the recommendations of a chemical use assessment. He was given credit for 149 days already served in jail.

As part of a plea agreement, an additional felony charge of second-degree assault and misdemeanor charges of domestic assault were dismissed.

 The charges were filed after June 30, when a Willmar Police officer was called to the Rice Memorial Hospital emergency room regarding an assault. A woman there reported that Irwin had kicked her in the stomach multiple times, cut her with a knife and threatened to cut her throat with the knife. The incident happened in a motel room in the city and because the woman hadn’t brought Irwin any methamphetamine for his consumption.

Irwin was also at the hospital, claiming he was injured when the woman beat him because he was going to break off their relationship. He said the woman injured herself.

He was arrested and a digital scale was located in his possession. Residue on the scale tested positive as methamphetamine.
