OLMSTED COUNTY, Minn. – A pair of weekend burglaries are under investigations.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office said one occurred Oct. 5 when deputies responded to the 10000 block of County Rd. 115 SW in Rock Dell Township.
A 39-year-old victim came home and found a $1,500 laptop stolen. Deputies think the suspect entered through an unsecured entrance.
A second burglary was reported Sunday at Lock Away Storage on Broadway Ave. N. in Cascade Township.
Authorities said an electric gate was heavily damaged and surveillance video showed a 2010 Toyota Rav4 pull up before someone broke into a 2013 camping trailer.
There were signs of forced entry and the inside of the trailer was trashed.
The vehicle was reported stolen earlier Sunday morning from the 3700 block of Winesap Dr.
The damage to the fence was at least $1,000.
