ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man arrested in 2016 after a drug deal turned into a robbery has finally pleaded guilty.
Kyle Cappard, 21 of Blaine, was charged with 5th degree drug possession theft, theft of a motor vehicle, and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a crime of violence. Rochester police say Cappard was arrested on December 6, 2016, when a woman said Cappard, who was 19 at the time, and another teen robbed her after she tried to sell them marijuana.
