Ricky Allen Green of 4502 Aldrich Ave. N. is facing charges of kidnapping, robbery and assault over a terrifying incident that involved an alleged drug debt. The victim was tied up and a gun placed in his mouth. Click here for the criminal complaint.
The victim was a former resident of 4502 Aldrich Ave. N. which may be how he knew the no accounts who allegedly live there.
Oh, wait. That should be alleged no accounts who live there. The "alleged" emphasis being on the "no account" part, not the fact they live there.
The victim went to 4502 Aldrich Ave. N. to buy drugs (that doesn't seem to be in dispute) and some woman known as "Ashley" said the victim should come inside to talk about his growing drug debt. The woman was later identified as ASHLEY ELIZABETH OSTERLOH, who is also a defendant facing charges.
Foolishly, the victim complied. Soon enough Ashley and some guy known as Zachary (ZACHARY JAY WARRINER) had the victim stripped naked and were trying to put duct tape on his hands and mouth.
Ashley and Zachary told the victim to call relatives and get money, which the victim did. About then some guy known as "Casper" showed up and put a gun in the victim's mouth. Casper hit the victim on the head a number of times.
This whole time, a friend of the victim was right outside. One of the kidnappers, known as "the fat guy," tried to have the victim's friend get money. This whole time, Ricky Allen Green was reported present at the kidnapping and was the person the victim owed for the past drug debt. But the friend wasn't all that helpful.
The victim called his mommy. That's when Zachary got on the phone and said something like, "LOOK HERE, MOM!!! We've already shoved a gun in his mouth and he has pliers on his hands right now!!! GET THE (EXPLETIVE) MONEY OR ELSE!!!!" At some point it was stated the victim had "about two hours left."
The victim was put in a car and driven to Maple Grove. This whole time, the victim was texting and trying to get money but at least one friend was, like, sorry...can't help you.
I guess nobody really makes deep and faithful friends in the drug scene.
The victim was driven back to North Minneapolis, and at some point zip ties were placed on his arms. Yet, incredibly, the victim managed to run out of the car and summoned help at 51st and Dupont. The victim had a black eye. Later, when police leaned on Ashley, she pretty much told the whole tale.
Ricky Green is currently held on a mere $25,000 bail, which seems mighty low for such serious charges but keep in mind it's not like a DECENT person was kidnapped. Ashley, who was so helpful by telling the police everything, is held on $100,000 bail. It just doesn't seem fair, somehow.
Ashley's address is listed as 5639 5th Street in Fridley, Minnesota. I don't think Zachary Warriner is in custody.
This blogger hears this latest incident is only the last in a long series of terrifying things happening with those individuals at that address.
