District Court

Kandiyohi County

* Martin William Danielson, 22, of Willmar, pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of failing to comply with the requirements of a predatory offender.

Judge Donald M. Spilseth ordered that Danielson be held in jail until his sentencing on Nov. 6.

The charge was filed after a detective with the Willmar Police Department was conducting the quarterly predatory offender registration checks and noted that Danielson registered an address in Willmar's southeast quadrant in May. Danielson is required to register because of his August 2007 conviction for kidnapping.

The detective went to the address on April 2 and learned from a woman living there that Danielson had lived at the residence for a short time in January and had moved out. The woman said she did not know where Danielson was living, but did not think he was in Willmar.

* Matthew Allen Bloomquist, 23, of Hawick, pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of receiving stolen property.

He will be sentenced Nov. 15.

The charge was filed after a Kandiyohi County sheriff's deputy was called Jan. 28 to a rural Hawick residence on a burglary and theft report. Someone had taken the copper wiring from the house, shed and barn and had stolen items from the place, including a trailer, log splitter, boat, propane cylinders, electrical cords, gas cans and gas.

Stearns County officials had issued an attempt-to-locate notice on a vehicle leaving the residence on Jan. 26 and the vehicle was located by Meeker County deputies, with Bloomquist and another man.

Paynesville police located the stolen trailer and turned it over to the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office. Bloomquist was questioned and said he got the trailer from a man in Kerkhoven. However, he had told the Paynesville officer he borrowed the trailer from someone.
