LITTLE FALLS-Ricardo "Ricky" Medina, 38, of Plymouth was found guilty Tuesday by a Morrison County District Court jury in Little Falls of aiding and abetting aggravated robbery in the first degree.

Medina's charges stem from an incident when Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force agents attempted to execute a controlled buy of methamphetamine from the home of Sharonda Little in Little Falls on Oct. 18, 2016.

An informant was supplied with $600, and instructed to go to her home and purchase methamphetamine. Four task force agents nearby observed the informant enter a garage behind Little's home.

A scuffle was heard followed by the informant begging Medina to stop. After he left the garage, the informant said Medina hit him in the face and the $600 was stolen by another in the garage. A third person in the garage brandished a gun, according to the informant.

Little pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery in the first degree and was sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to complete chemical dependency treatment. Evan Anderson pleaded guilty to unauthorized person possessing a firearm and is serving a 60-month prison sentence. Little and Anderson were court-ordered to testify at Medina's trial.
