According to the criminal complaint, Olmsted County Sheriff's Office investigators found a Yamaha motorcycle that had been reported stolen in the living room of the residence. The court document notes that the motorcycle had been partially disassembled.

The search also led to the discovery of a number of shotgun shells and .22 caliber bullets. Court records show Kenyon is prohibited from possessing any firearms or ammunition because of previous felony convictions, including a conviction for illegal possession of a firearm or ammunition and a charge of possession of a short-barrel shotgun in late December.

Kenyon's criminal record includes a total of 12 felony convictions dating back to 2019. The list includes convictions for theft, vehicle theft, fleeing police, receiving stolen property, and drug offenses.
