Warrant issued for DL teen for burglary, vehicle theft
A warrant has been issued for a Detroit Lakes teenager on felony charges of third degree burglary and motor vehicle theft, after he failed to appear for a scheduled hearing Monday in Becker County District Court.
Justin Scott Lee Stallman, 17, of 23883 Broadway Ave., Detroit Lakes, is accused of taking an ATV from inside a Detroit Lakes welding business on April 17.
According to the criminal complaint, the theft was discovered after an employee noticed that the door of the building had been left open, and several sets of footprints and tire tracks were found inside. The employees also said that Stallman had stopped by the business earlier in the day, and a witness later came forward to say that he had driven him to the business before later dropping him off at the mall downtown.
Stallman was spotted the next day riding an ATV on State Highway 87, where the vehicle was stopped by a state trooper for operating on a state highway.
