District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Randy James Parlett, of Dilworth and formerly of New London, appeared Monday on a felony charge of terroristic threats for allegedly threatening to kill a woman.

Unconditional bail was set at $50,000. He also faces two misdemeanor charges of domestic assault. His next appearance is March 3.

According to the complaint, a Kandiyohi County Sheriff's deputy was called on Nov. 4 to take a terroristic threats report. A woman reported that she and Parlett had a long-term relationship and several children together. She said he was verbally abusive, violent and very controlling. She said he threatened to kill her if she was cheating on him and said he'd steal the children and run away with them.

Another woman told the deputy that Parlett had called her asking where the woman and children were and said she heard Parlett threaten to kill the woman while they were on the phone.

- Lucio Triquin Delacruz, 42, of Willmar, appeared Monday on felony charges of drug possession, forgery and aggravated forgery.

Delacruz, who is also known as Carlos Javier Borrero Rosa, first appeared in court on Nov. 29 on the drug possession, plus two driving while impaired and three traffic offense charges. The forgery charges were added last week after investigators received copies of allegedly forged employment documents.

His next court appearance is Dec. 21.

According to the complaint, around 1 a.m. Nov. 28 a Willmar police officer was at the Caribbean Club along Business 71 at closing time. A club security officer pointed out that an intoxicated man was in a vehicle and appeared to be about to drive away. The officer approached the vehicle and convinced the man and his passenger to leave the vehicle parked.

However, the same car later exited the parking lot and pulled onto the highway. The officer followed and stopped the car. The driver was ultimately identified as Delacruz, but gave the officer a Missouri identification card and a Jennie-O Turkey Store ID in the Borrero name. He said he had four beers and failed field sobriety tests. The officer saw and confiscated a baggie of white substance on the seat of the vehicle.

The man was taken to the jail, where he submitted to a breath test that showed a blood-alcohol content of 0.09. The drugs tested positive as cocaine.

While he was being interviewed, Delacruz allegedly told the officer his real name and said he was working at Jennie-O under the false name. He said he'd bought the identity for $75.

Investigators received several employment documents from Jennie-O in the Borrero name, all signed in August of this year.
