AUSTIN, Minn. – Charges are pending against a woman after a Tuesday morning burglary.

The Austin Police Department got a call around 10:52 am about a burglary in the 400 block of 9th Street NE. A 53-year-old man told officers that a loud bang at his front door woke him up and when he went to investigate, he found Nicole Latrice Beasley, 33 of Austin, inside his house.

The man says he knows Beasley and she asked him for money, which he wouldn’t give her. The man says Beasley then grabbed a pencil bag holding an undisclosed amount of cash, left the home, and got into a black vehicle with a male driver.

Police say they spoke with a neighbor who reported hearing a noise and seeing a black female pounding on the victim’s door, then kicking it until the door opened.

Police say they located the black vehicle but learned Beasley had left in a van. Officers located the van in the 1200 block of 4th Street NW just after 3 pm, knocked on an apartment door and as a woman opened the door, police say they saw Beasley leaving the room.  Officers entered the home and arrested Beasley.

Austin Police Chief Brian Krueger says the bag and money was not found at the apartment.

Beasley is being held in the Mower County Jail on charges of 1st degree burglary and 3rd degree damage to property.
