Warrant Issued For Rochester Man After He Skipped Court Hearing
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - An arrest warrant was issued for a Rochester man charged in connection with a major drug bust last fall after he failed to appear for a required court hearing on Wednesday.
Conditional bail was set at $250,000 for 25-year-old Elliott Wilkens after he was charged with six counts of first-degree drug possession and drug sales following the execution of search warrants on his vehicle and home in Rochester. He also faces two lesser felony drug charges in the case.
The criminal complaint says the search warrant was for items related to a recent series of burglaries and thefts and led to the discovery of a huge amount of illegal drugs. Specifically, the search of his vehicle resulted in the seizure of more than 11 pounds of cocaine, 7 pounds of fentanyl, a pound of methamphetamine, and 15 pounds of marijuana.
