Rochester man arrested after shelter-in-place notice in Lyle

Lyle, MN (KROC-AM News) – Mower County authorities say a Rochester man was responsible for a “shelter in place” notice in Lyle on Friday afternoon.

Austin Police Chief David McKichan said the situation began with an armed robbery at an Austin convenience store around 1:50 p.m. of a car linked to a robbery at a liquor store earlier in the week. The officer notified the Mower County Dispatch Center of the vehicle just as a convenience store employee called to report a robbery at knifepoint.

The first Austin police officer to respond to the scene saw the suspect drive away and attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver fled at ‘extremely high speed’ through a residential area and the pursuit was called off in the interest of public safety. . Austin police then worked to track the vehicle, which was spotted eastbound on I-90 and pursued southbound on Highway 218 toward Lyle.

Chief McKichan reported that after the suspect drove into Lyle, he abandoned the car and fled on foot. Four law enforcement officers from three different agencies established a perimeter, and the Austin/Mower Special Incident Response Team was brought in to search several unoccupied homes. Eventually, the armed robbery suspect was found hiding in some bushes in Lyle.

He has been identified as Adrick Mims, 27, of Rochester. The press release notes that he was wanted on some existing warrants at the time of his arrest and was taken to the Mower County Jail pending charges.
