Andrew Leigh Millen, a 43-year old white male from Wykoff, appeared before Judge Robert R. Benson in District Court Monday, October 11, 2010, facing two counts of terroristic threats, one count of assault and one count of disorderly conduct. If convicted on all four counts, Millen could face a maximum penalty of 11 years in prison, 90 days in county jail and fines totaling $24,000.00 On May 13, Fillmore County Sheriff's department responded to a call from the Rochester crisis center that Andrew Millen had been reported to them as suicidal and was acting out of control. Investigator/Sgt. Phil Whitacre was dispatched to the defendant's residence in Fillmore, along with deputies Don Kullot, Lance Boyum and jail administrator Jamie Fenske. The Spring Valley ambulance service was also on stand-by at the scene. Upon arrival, Millens's daughter met the authorities and was concerned because her dad was threatening to kill himself and had been drinking heavily. She reported that he is bipolar and had not been taking his meds for that condition. At the time, he was sleeping so when authorities awakened him, the defendant became very irate and threatened the peace officers both verbally and made physical overtures to do bodily harm as well. Officers at the scene tried to calm him down by telling Millen they were there to help him, but he continued to threaten and verebally abuse them. Moving outside, Millen noticed a neighbor watching the events from his yard and at that point Millen started across the street toward him with threats of violence. Officers had to finally use a Taser to subdue Millen, who was handcuffed and transported to Saint Marys Hospital. Judge Benson set unconditional bail at $10,000.00. Millen's next court appearance is scheduled for October 25. Representing Mr. Millen is attorney Frederick Suhler.

Also appearing in District Court before Judge Robert R. Benson on Monday, October 11, was Susan Catherine Scott, a 21-year old white female from Ostrander. Representing Ms. Scott was attorney Frederick Suhler. Scott faces six counts involving burglary, theft, and receiving stolen property that all stem from a previous court case that involved her husband. Between April 13 and May 20 the Corner Store in Ostrander was broken into twice. In the first break-in DVDs, VHS tapes and cigarettes were taken from the store that totaled over $2,500.00 in cash value. The store was again broken into on or about May 20 and this time over $500.00 worth of DVDs and tapes were stolen. Later, in July Officer Tom Mosher was dispatched to the home of the Scotts on an unrelated incident, and while there, he noticed several DVDs and tapes strewn on the floor that looked suspicious. The defendant said she had purchased some of them and others belonged to her husband and she claimed she did not know where he got them. Officer Mosher asked if he could take some of the tapes and DVDs, which were later identified by the owner of the Corner Store as property belonging to him. Scott denies having any involvement in the Corner Store burglaries. However, if she is convicted on all six charges, she could face a maximum penalty of 12 years in prison, 180 days in county jail and fines amounting to $28,000.00. Judge Benson set unconditional bail at $10,000.00. Scott's next court appearance is set for October 25, 2010.
