A man wanted since 2018 on a Hennepin County warrant in connection to an Eden Prairie aggravated robbery has been taken into custody after 18 months on the lam and was apparently living in North Carolina.
Ramon Gilberto Colon was charged with first-degree aggravated robbery along with two others in 2018 related to a robbery that took place in September of that year in the city of Eden Prairie, MN.
Original charges in the case said that the victim, an Eagan man, had met up at Mystic Lake Casino with Colon, whom he had worked with, and Colon’s two female friends, identified as Nicole Antoinette Miller and Spar’keesha Shicole Miller, according to a contemporaneous report on the charges.
When they decided to leave the casino, the victim wanted to drive his own vehicle, but Colon and the others insisted that he ride with them in their vehicle.
The victim was in the back seat with Colon and the two women were in front, Spar’keesha Miller was driving. At some point, Colon and Nicole Miller attacked the victim with Colon choking him and Nicole Miller holding his legs down while they went through his pockets taking his cell phone and about $3,000 in cash.
The victim was then thrown from the vehicle along I-494 and sustained non-life threatening injuries. The victim ran to a nearby business where he was able to contact authorities, the charges said.
Nicole Miller was taken into custody and charged with aiding first-degree aggravated robbery shortly after the incident. Colon and Spar’keesha Miller were subsequently charged by warrants.
Court records indicate that Spar’keesha Miller was taken into custody in April 2019 and ended up pleading guilty to one felony count of aiding an offender and was sentenced in November. Under the terms of a plea agreement, she was sentenced to 23 months in prison, however, the prison sentence was stayed by Judge Regina M. Chu. Spar’keesha Miller was instead sentenced to 90 days in the workhouse and was ordered to pay $4,227 in fees and restitution and will remain on supervised probation until Nov. 2022.
Nicole Miller was convicted by a jury in October on one felony count of aiding/abetting first-degree aggravated robbery. She was sentenced to 41 months in Shakopee Correctional Facility. Under Minnesota’s two-thirds sentencing rule, Nicole Miller is scheduled for release in Dec. 2021.
