AUSTIN, Minn. – A case of speeding through Mower County turns into a felony conviction.

Ryan Michael Matchinsky, 19 of Stillwater, was arrested on June 14, 2017 after a traffic stop on Highway 63 in Racine Township. A state trooper says Matchinsky was clocked driving 76 in a 55 mile per hour zone.

The trooper found the pickup truck Matchinsky was driving had been reported stolen and arrested him. Authorities say a breath test found Matchinsky with a blood alcohol content of .47 percent and a search of the truck found two unloaded pistols, an unloaded AR-15 style rifle, an unloaded .22 rifle, a clip of 9 millimeter ammunition, several rounds of .22 caliber ammunition, three compound bows, a loaded BB rifle, and three opened bottles of liquor.

Court documents state Matchinsky blamed a friend of his for stealing the guns and bows.

Matchinsky was charged with eight crimes but pleaded guilty to one count of theft, carrying a pistol without a permit, and underage drinking and driving. He’s been sentenced to 129 days in the Mower County Jail, 10 years of supervised probation, and must pay $8,258.69 in restitution.
