Mobile meth lab car owner charged


Feller was scheduled to be in Blue Earth County District Court for sentencing for the earlier possession charge on Nov. 25. Judge Krista Jass issued a warrant for his arrest after he failed to appear. That warrant was used to take Feller into custody when he was found in Jackson County.

In addition to the possession charge that stemmed from a June 25, 2012, incident, Feller also faced felony drug and criminal sexual conduct charges for an incident in March. A woman reported she had been sexually assaulted by Feller in Mankato after a mutual friend arranged for Feller to give her a ride from St. Cloud. She also told police they stopped in New Ulm to smoke methamphetamine.

Those charges were dismissed Oct. 7, the same day Feller pleaded guilty to the possession charge.

Hacker pleaded guilty to a felony second-degree drug possession charge Jan. 24. A more serious charge of manufacturing methamphetamine and a second possession charge were dismissed in exchange for his plea. He was sentenced to three years in prison.

Peterson pleaded guilty to a felony charge of possession of products used to manufacture methamphetamine on Dec. 10. She was sentenced on Feb. 12 to the 55 days she had already served in jail, fined $1,000 and placed on five years probation with several conditions. Those conditions include completing chemical treatment and Nicollet County drug court.

The other person arrested at the Judson boat landing was Kyle Guyer, 20, of Nicollet. Guyer posted a bond for his release Nov. 12. His next court hearing is scheduled for March 4.
