Elbow Lake Village man charged with burglary

Johnathan Dean Jackson, 18, of Elbow Lake Village, Waubun has been charged in Becker County Court with felony third-degree burglary.

On Monday, a White Earth tribal police officer on patrol was dispatched to White Earth village on report of a break-in at a former grocery store there, the Thunderbird Express, located across from the school.

Upon arrival, the officer learned one person was still inside the building, and ordered him to come out.

The man, allegedly Jackson, said he was inside "looking for cigarettes," according to court records. He had gained access by pulling back metal sheeting covering a window.

On Tuesday, District Judge Peter Irvine ordered him freed without bail and set his next court appearance for Sept. 8.
