Minnesota state law requires insurance pro- viders to offer a 3-year, 10 percent auto insurance discount to licensed drivers age 55 and older upon com- pletion of an approved defensive driving course. Dassel-Cokato Community Education offers a unique program developed by the American Asso- ciation of Retired Persons (AARP), designed to refine existing driving skills and develop safe, defensive driving techniques. These classes must be renewed every three years to receive the discount. Participants must take an eight- hour first-time class if they have not taken one previously through AARP. A four-hour renewal course is required every three years after completing the original eight-hour first-time course. Those eligible and completing these courses will receive a "completion certificate" which they may submit to their insurance company. A first-time, eight-hour class, is scheduled for Tuesday and Thurs- day, March 22 and 24, 5:30-9:30 p.m. both nights, at the Dassel-Cokato High School. A four-hour renewal class is scheduled for Tuesday, May 3, 5:30-9:30 p.m. Course fees are $17 (or $15 for AARP members.) Pre-registration and payment is required before the class.

Stalking arrest; crime blotters Arrest for felony stalking Wednesday, March 9, the Meeker County Sheriff's Office arrested Joel Samuel Silva, 32 years old, of rural Maple Lalse, on charges of felony stalking, possession of drug para- phernalia, and possession of mari- juana in a motor vehicle. This arrest resulted from a series of incidents beginning in February of 2010. A female victim from rural Das- sel reported getting harassing phone calls, that over time esca- lated to heavy breathing and finally an explicit sexual photo. The calls were number restricted and traces came back to discarded track phones with what appeared to be random-dialing of a large amount of numbers. Through continued investi- gation, investigators were able to track the purchase of a cell phone used in these incidents to a Wal- Mart store in Buffalo. A photograph of the unknown purchaser was obtained and later identified by area law enforcement as Joel Sam- uel Silva. Silva was unknown to the victim in Dassel. Joel Silva has a criminal conviction history of past harass- ment, stalking, and obscene phone calls dating back to 2003 in Wright, Ramsey, and Douglas Counties in Minnesota. Joel Silva is currently being held in the Meeker County Jail on $40,000 unconditional bail, pend- ing future court hearings. Stolen Bobcat recovered June 7, 2010, the Meeker County Sheriff's Office took a report of a burglary at 65391 Highway 24, For- rest City, in which a 1991 Bobcat Skid loader, model 743B, and other tools were stolen. The Bobcat was valued at $7,500. During the investigation, numerous leads were followed along with a Crime Stoppers tip from a party that had specific infor- mation that led investigators to believe the Bobcat was in rural Hennepin County. Thursday, March 3, while work- ing with the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office about more infor- mation on a possible location, a search warrant was executed in the city of Corcoran. During this search warrant, the stolen Bobcat from Meeker County was recovered and, Leonard Wil- liam Brusletten, 42 years old, from Minnetonka, was arrested and booked into the Hennepin County Jail for possession of the stolen property. This case is still under investi- gation. Sheriff Jeff Norlin wishes to remind everyone you may give your tips to the Sheriff's Office in several different ways. You may call the Meeker County Sheriff's Office con- fidential tip line at (320) 693-5411, or text your tip at "TIP674 plus your message" to "CRIMES" (274637). You may also call Crime Stoppers toll free at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
