BROWNSDALE, Minn. – The Mower County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a break-in at a gas station early Monday morning.

There was an alarm call at 2:31 am at the CHS gas station in Brownsdale. Deputies arrived to find one door forced open to get inside, with the burglar apparently leaving through another door. Someone connected to the store says nothing seemed to be stolen or out of place.

A K9 unit from the Austin Police Department was called to the scene and the dog tracked a scent for several yards before losing it. Mower County Senior Investigator Sergeant Steven Sandvik says that indicates the burglar might have gotten into a vehicle.

Surveillance video from the gas station is being reviewed. Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call 507-437-9400.
