District Court
Kandiyohi County
WILLMAR - Two suspects in a chase with CEE-VI Drug and Gang Task Force agents Oct. 1 in Willmar pleaded not guilty this week to numerous felony charges.
Ricardo Daniel Gomez, 38, Willmar, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to felony charges of first-degree drug sale, first-degree controlled substance crime, obstructing the legal process - interfere with a peace officer, fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and fifth-degree drug possession.
Gomez also pleaded not guilty to charges of gross misdemeanor driving after cancellation - inimical to public safety and a misdemeanor charge of reckless or careless driving.
He waived an omnibus hearing Wednesday and is scheduled for a hearing March 16 and a jury trial March 17.
Gomez’s passenger, Jeremiah Judson Malvin, 30, Raymond, also pleaded not guilty Monday to felony charges of third-degree drug possession, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and two charges of fifth-degree drug possession.
Malvin is scheduled for a hearing Dec. 22 and a jury trial on Dec. 23.
According to the criminal complaint, the chase started after agents attempted to arrest Gomez on outstanding warrants at the intersection of Olena Avenue and Second Street Southeast in Willmar.
Gomez reportedly traveled around 70 to 80 miles per hour in his Chevy Cruze, running stop signs and passing school zones at excessive speeds.
He was reportedly traveling on Kandiyohi Avenue Southwest when he attempted to take a turn at 40 to 50 miles per hour and go north on 15th Street Southwest. An agent pulled his unmarked patrol unit up to the side of the Chevy Cruze after the vehicle lost control.
Gomez then allegedly attempted to flee on foot from the agents and threw a small purple bag, later found to contain more than 26 grams of methamphetamine.
The chase ended when an agent tackled Gomez on a driveway north of the stopped vehicle, the complaint states. Gomez and Malvin were both arrested and transported to the Kandiyohi County Jail.
Agents also reportedly found additional drugs and drug paraphernalia at the scene, such as baggies, scales, a large amount of cash, marijuana and more amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine.
WILLMAR - A 23-year-old Willmar man pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony drug charge and two misdemeanor charges resulting from two separate incidents.
Carlton Michael Eliason, 23, of Willmar pleaded guilty to a charge of misdemeanor domestic assault resulting from an incident in March when Eliason allegedly assaulted a man.
Additional charges resulting from this incident of felony second-degree assault, third-degree assault and domestic assault will be dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
Eliason also pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony charge of storing methamphetamine paraphernalia in the presence of a child or vulnerable adult and a misdemeanor charge of violating a domestic abuse-no contact order. These charges resulted from a separate incident in which Eliason made his first appearance in October.
An additional felony drug charge and misdemeanor drug charge will also be dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
According to the criminal complaint on the March incident, Willmar police were called to the emergency room at Rice Memorial Hospital in March regarding a man who had been hit in the head with a bat. The man said he had gone to a residence to confront Eliason about abusing a woman and that Eliason had hit him in the head with an object he believed to be a bat.
The woman told officers that she had argued with Eliason and that he had assaulted her and attempted to strangle her with his hands.
WILLMAR - Jasmine Raye Elizondo, 20, of Willmar, pleaded not guilty Thursday to three felony drug charges and a felony assault charge stemming from two separate incidents in Willmar this year.
Elizondo pleaded not guilty to a charge of fifth-degree drug sale and two charges of second-degree drug sale resulting from alleged drug sales between March 4 and April 18. She also pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of fifth-degree assault for allegedly hitting another woman in July.
A hearing and jury trial for both cases have been scheduled for early February.
According to the complaint resulting in the three felony drug charges, the CEE-VI Drug and Gang Task Force conducted controlled buys of marijuana and methamphetamine from Elizondo.
The criminal complaint on the felony assault charge alleges that Willmar police officers were called to a reported assault and arrived on scene at the area of Fifth Street and Rice Avenue Southwest to find a girl crying.
The victim reportedly had a red mark on her forehead and said she had been walking on the street when a pickup truck pulled up beside her. A female later identified as Elizondo jumped out and hit her about 10 times, according to the complaint.
