District Court

Kandiyohi County

* Edwin Efrain Castellon Lopez, 25, of Willmar, made his first appearance Monday on five felony charges of forgery, aggravated forgery and perjury for using another man’s name to work.

According to the complaint, Willmar police came in contact with Castellon Lopez on Dec. 25, 2009, after the vehicle he was driving almost hit a city snowplow that morning.

Castellon Lopez was arrested and charged with gross misdemeanor charges of driving while impaired, plus a misdemeanor charge of driving without a valid license.

According to that court file, Willmar police officers were called around 7:15 a.m. Dec. 25, 2009, to investigate a report that a vehicle had almost struck a snowplow. They arrived, found a Chevy Blazer stuck in a snowbank and, with the assistance of public works personnel, located the driver, Lopez, walking away from the vehicle.

He was given a preliminary breath test, which showed a blood-alcohol level of 0.09 percent and he was arrested. Lopez allegedly admitted to driving, said that he had drunk five beers and that he did not remember seeing a snowplow.

According to the forgery complaint, investigating officers found an Illinois identification card and a Jennie-O Turkey Store employee ID on Castellon Lopez in the name of Humberto Cadena Jr.

The investigation revealed that Castellon Lopez was working for Jennie-O through We Staff and had signed multiple employment documents falsely in the Cadena name.

His next appearance is June 17 in both the forgery and drunken driving cases.
