A Benson man facing five criminal charges skipped his scheduled Friday appearance in Kandiyohi County court. 31 year old Randy Frederiks is facing charges ranging from drug possession and fleeing a police officer to possession of explosive materials. Kandiyohi County Sheriff Eric Holien told KMRS that Frederiks is not in custody.
“The way it sounds, he did not appear for Court. He does not plan to appear for Court,” said Holien. “I would not say at this point he is a risk to the public. There’s no indication to believe he would be, other than the fact he doesn’t want to appear.”
No warrant has been issued for Frederiks yet, said Holien, but that may change in the near future.
