* Three men were arraigned Monday on charges related to an alleged methamphetamine sale.
According to the criminal complaints against Jon Robert Clark, 22, of Spicer, Chad Michael Evenson, 19, of New London, and Daniel Dean Fultz, 19, of Willmar, they all allegedly took part in a drug sale to an informant working with the CEE-VI Drug Task Force.
The informant arranged to buy an eight-ball (3.5 grams) of methamphetamine through Clark on Sept. 28. They met at Taco John's in Willmar, then Clark said he had to go pick up the methamphetamine. Clark drove up to Evenson's New London residence to find methamphetamine, the complaint says. Clark stayed there a short while and left with Fultz, who said he could get the drugs for Clark, the complaint says. They then met the informant at Super America in Willmar.
Clark, Fultz and the informant went to a Willmar apartment, where Fultz went inside and got the methamphetamine, the complaint says. They then went back to Super America, where Clark gave the informant a baggie of methamphetamine for $300, the complaint says. The substance weighed 2.2 grams, the complaint says.
In an interview with Fultz, he admitted that he'd helped Clark get methamphetamine in Willmar, the complaint says.
Clark admitted to police that he'd helped get the methamphetamine for the informant, but said that Fultz handed the informant the methamphetamine, the complaint says.
The complaint against Evenson also says that in another drug investigation, another person who sold methamphetamine to an informant had been supplied meth by Evenson.
All three face one count of controlled substance crime and one count of third-degree controlled substance crime - conspiracy to sell.
Evenson's unconditional bail was set at $100,000 and conditional bail was set at $50,000.
Clark's unconditional bail was set at $75,000 and his conditional bail was set at $50,000.
Fultz's unconditional bail was set at $50,000 and his conditional bail was set at $10,000.
All three are scheduled to appear in court next on Feb. 13.
* A Willmar man pleaded guilty Monday to one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
According to the criminal complaint, Carlos Moreno Medina, 59, was arrested Aug. 25 for allegedly molesting a 6-year-old girl.
A Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office detective and a county family services official were called to a Willmar home on a report of molestation.
They spoke with the 6-year-old girl and her mother. The girl reported that Medina had molested her and had forced her to have intercourse with her, the complaint says.
The mother also said she suspected Medina had molested the girl, the complaint says.
One count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct was dismissed as part of Medina's plea agreement.
He will be sentenced March 7.
* A Willmar man was arraigned Monday on charges he fled police and was driving while drunk.
According to the criminal complaint, Abelino Garza Martinez, 44, was driving 38 miles per hour on U.S. Highway 12 near Fifth Street Southeast. The speed limit there is 30.
A police officer turned on his lights, and Martinez allegedly drove away quickly, reaching speeds of 65 to 70 miles per hour, the complaint says.
Martinez went south on Lakeland Drive and pulled over at Trott Avenue. But soon after pulling over, he took off again, reaching speeds of 65 to 75 miles per hour, the complaint says. Finally, he pulled over at the YMCA, 1000 Lakeland Dr. S.E.
He was arrested for fleeing a police officer. A breath test showed a 0.15 percent blood alcohol concentration, the complaint says.
He faces one count of fleeing a police officer, two counts of third-degree driving while impaired and one count of speeding.
Monday, his unconditional bail was set at $3,000 and he was given the option to be released on his own recognizance under certain pretrial probationary conditions.
