Rochester man admits armed robbery in Austin

Austin, Minnesota (News KROC-AM) – A Rochester man accused of robbing two Rochester convenience stores earlier this year has pleaded guilty to three Austin robbery cases.

Adrick Mims, 26, today acknowledged three counts of theft while in possession of a dangerous weapon. In exchange, Mower County prosecutors agreed to drop four counts of second-degree assault and one charge of fleeing from police.

Mims was arrested in late June after robbing a convenience store in Austin and led Austin police on a high-speed chase through Lyle, where he fled on foot and was later found hiding in some bushes. A shelter-in-place alert has been issued for the small community south of Austin as police search for Mims.

He was also charged with armed robbery at an Austin convenience store on June 12 and robbery at a liquor store on June 19. He is currently expected to be sentenced in March.

Mims is also due to appear in Olmsted County Court later this month on charges stemming from the Rochester robberies. He is accused of robbing Casey’s General Store in the 1900 block of Northwest 7th Street by threatening an employee with a knife on June 5. Mims is also charged with the June 16 robbery of the Shell Gas N Go on East River Road Northeast, during which he allegedly wielded a box cutter. He faces charges of first-degree robbery and second-degree assault in each of the Rochester cases.
