OLMSTED COUNTY, Minn. – A woman arrested for burglary this weekend may be connected to others in southeastern Minnesota.
Barbara Larson, 23, of Pine Island, is facing four felony burglary charges (2nd-degree burglary, 1st-degree burglary of an occupied dwelling, first-degree burglary and committing assault and possessing burglary tools).
Authorities say she broke into a home in the 1100 block of Riverwood Dr. SW. in Oronoco on Saturday morning and attempted to take prescription narcotics, jewelry and collector coins.
Larson allegedly tried to push through the homeowners when they arrived and left in a vehicle. She was arrested by the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office at her Pine Island residence.
Larson may be connected to a burglary last month in Oronoco where a passport was stolen, authorities said.
