The charge stemmed from a Nov. 23 report to the sheriff’s office, according to the complaint. The deputy learned about a disturbance in the 41500 block of 130th St. S.E. in Plummer. He found that there was a no-contact order between Jenkins and a female occupant. The order stipulated that the two of them were to have no contact.
However, Jenkins was allowed to have visits with their children, and those visits were to be scheduled using a third party. He wasn’t allowed to be inside the woman’s home.
The deputy learned that Jenkins had broken into the home and took the kids. He admitted that he had tried to pick up the kids for Thanksgiving. The deputy also learned that Jenkins had visited the kids several times at the home, which is also occupied by a man and the kids’ grandmother.
Jenkins had stayed overnight at the home without permission. The man said Jenkins had spoken directly to the woman, which is in violation of the Domestic Abuse – No Contact Order. Jenkins told the deputy that he had stayed overnight at the home. However, he wouldn’t respond when asked about directly speaking with the woman.

He also had a stay of adjudication for a Roseau County offense of terroristic threats. All were 2020 court files.
