A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a St. Paul man wanted on felony firearms and hunting charges after he failed to appear in Winona County Court Monday.
Tou Yang, 44, who was convicted on charges of third-degree criminal sexual conduct in 1999, was scheduled to appear in court Monday on charges of illegal firearm possession, transporting illegal big game and borrowing a tag from another after he allegedly illegally shot a deer in Winona County.
According to the complaint, while investigating allegations of illegal hunting and other criminal activities in November of 2017, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officers spoke with a man who said Yang had shot a deer and had used his son’s tag.
Yang reportedly admitted to shooting the deer with a 12-gauge Beretta shotgun and transporting it using a GMC truck.
During the investigation, officers also executed a search warrant on two of Yang’s phones and seized the truck used to transport the deer.
On the phones, officers recovered photos depicting Yang holding a shotgun in a deer stand, and deer hair was discovered in the truck bed.
If convicted on all counts, Yang — who remains at large — faces up to six years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
