ROCHESTER, Minn. – An Olmsted County man is going to prison for playing a part in a home invasion and an apparent drive-by shooting.
20-year-old Adrick Deonte Mims of Rochester entered guilty pleas Tuesday to one count of simple robbery and one count of aiding an offender-accomplice after the fact. He was sentenced to 36 months on the first charge and 39 months on the second, with credit for 195 days already served.
Mims and Yasin Sufi of Rochester were accused of robbing three Rochester Community and Technical College students on February 8. Authorities said they stole several hundred dollars in electronics and threatened to shoot the students.
Sufi pled guilty to simple robbery and was sentenced to 36 months behind bars.
Then on June 16, Mims and a 15-year-old male were arrested after shots were reported fired near the entrance of Oak Terrace Estates on Marion Road. The man who claimed to be the target of the shooting says it began as a traffic dispute. When police located the vehicle described as the source of the shots, Mims and the 15-year-old were removed from the car at gunpoint and a semi-automatic handgun was found inside.
