2 convicted in Twin Cities crime spree charged in other robberies
Two people who were convicted earlier this year in connection to a string of carjacking incidents across the Twin Cities metro have been charged in connection to other robberies.
Kashawn Wertman and Nautica Argue, who were 18 and 19 years old at the time of the crimes in January, each faced more than a dozen charges when they took plea deals earlier this year. They were sentenced in July to 10 and nine years in prison, respectively.
Tuesday, Wertman was charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in connection to a Jan. 17 carjacking in New Brighton. Argue, meanwhile was charged Tuesday with second-degree aggravated robbery for a carjacking on Jan. 7 in White Bear Lake as well as two counts of simple robbery and one count of attempted robbery for a series of robberies in Roseville.
Court dates for their new charges haven’t yet been set.
Wertman is serving his sentence at the St. Cloud Correctional Facility while Argue is at the Shakopee prison.
