Juan Carlo Sanchez appeared in Fillmore County District Court on Monday, July 7 for a Rule 8 hearing. Sanchez is being held in the Fillmore County Jail and is charged with 27 counts related to the theft of ATV’s and other motor vehicles. This includes the theft of ATVs from M&M Lawn & Leisure in Rushford in December 2001 and January 2003. Sanchez was picked up on an outstanding warrant on July 1 in Albert Lea.
Public Defender Fred Suhler, Jr., representing Sanchez, requested an Omnibus Hearing and said he may file a motion in regard to probable cause for Sanchez’s arrest. Suhler said that the only evidence linking his client to this case was information provided by another person who was arrested. Suhler said that he needed the necessary time to hire an investigator to “check up on a few items.” The defense attorney claimed that his client was in his native Cuba when some of the thefts were alleged to have occurred. Suhler also asked the court to reduce bail on Mr. Sanchez, suggesting electronic home monitoring if necessary. “He has lived in Albert Lea for seven years, he owns a home there. There are no public safety issues, he has community ties,” Suhler argued.“There is no reason to keep bail at an inflated level.” Suhler told the court that Sanchez moved to the United States in 1980 and has been a naturalized citizen for 15 years. Judge Robert Benson continued Sanchez’s bail at $150,000. An Omnibus Hearing has been tentatively scheduled for July 24. Warrants have been issued for two other men who are wanted in connection with this case, Carcasco Zamora and Lazaro Seara Marin.
