Sauk Rapids man charged with receiving stolen property and driving without a license

Kyle Lester Oltz, 22, Sauk Rapids, was charged Nov. 20, in Morrison County District Court with one felony count of receiving stolen property and one misdemeanor count of driving after revocation.

While on patrol in Little Falls, a Morrison County deputy observed a driver stop at a stop sign, turn on the right blinker, pause, then turn left.

The deputy followed and ran the license plate. He was informed the vehicle had been reported stolen from the St. Cloud area.

When the driver exited the vehicle, the deputy identified Oltz and arrested him for possession of a stolen vehicle.

The officer also learned Oltz’ driving privileges had been revoked.

According to the criminal complaint, Oltz said he did not know the vehicle was stolen. He said he got it from another person.

If convicted, Oltz face a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.

    Seriously ? take a look at this guys record …

    He’s been in and out of court so many times he must have a punch card.

    Once again the Morrison County Sheriffs department did an outstanding job that we should all be thankful for, I can only imagine what the level of frustration is for the victims and officers when people like this are repeatedly caught and released over and over again.

    By the way almost a year to the day ( Oct. 26th 2012 ) The Morrison county Record reported that Kyle Lester Oltz was charged with Receiving stolen property, yes another mysterious person gave Oltz another car that was reported stolen. not to mention the dozens and dozens of other crimes he’s been charged with over the years.

    What’s the point of putting our officers at risk to catch these people red handed if all we’re going to do is give them a hot meal, a warm bed for the night and send them home with little more than a “naughty boy” come on Mr.County Attorney ( Brian Middendorf )
