District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Jacob Wayne Streich, 29, of Atwater, pleaded guilty Thursday to an amended charge of gross misdemeanor theft for his role in burglarizing a shed in rural Belgrade.

As part of a plea agreement, a felony for third-degree burglary will be dismissed. He will be sentenced Aug. 28.

Streich and Cory Ray Danielson, 40, of Grove City, are both charged in the case.

According to the complaints, a man called the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office around 5 p.m. June 9 reporting that he had seen a man taking a brass part off of a propane tank at a property along Highway 71 Northeast. The man identified Danielson, said that both men were in a shed on the property and that he didn't recognize the other burglar.

The responding deputy found Danielson and Streich in the shed and they were arrested. Several items, including batteries and tools, were located in the back of a pickup. A shed door was damaged.

Streich admitted he didn't have permission to take the items and claimed they had come to the property to buy a pop machine from the property owner, whom he did not know.

- Jordan Craig Rue, 21, of Willmar, made his first appearance Wednesday on a third-degree assault charge for allegedly hitting a man during a bar fight and breaking the man's nose.

Unconditional bail was set at $20,000. His next appearance is July 30.

According to the complaint, Kandiyohi County sheriff's deputies were called June 23 to Zorbaz in Spicer on an assault. A man there reported that he had attempted to break up a bar fight between two women and that he had been hit in the nose and thought it was broken.

Two security officers told deputies that Rue was the man who hit the victim in the face.

- Anthony Michael Weber, who is also known as Anthony Michael Sharp, 29, of Lake Lillian, made his first appearance Wednesday on a third-degree assault charge for allegedly hitting a man and breaking his jaw.

Unconditional bail was set at $20,000. His next appearance is Aug. 6.

According to the complaint, a man reported to law enforcement on March 6 that he had been assaulted on March 3 at a home in Spicer. He said Weber struck him in the face and broke his jaw.

The man reported he was at a party, stepped outside for a cigarette and that Weber had struck him from the side, causing him to strike his head on the running board of a pickup and lose consciousness. Two other men had witnessed the assault.

Weber was interviewed and said the victim was talking tough with him, that they pushed each other and that the victim had him by the throat, so Weber hit the man with a closed fist.

Both of the other men who witnessed the assault said that there was no reason why Weber hit the victim.
