Man sentenced for burglary

Johnathan Dean Jackson, 18, of Elbow Lake Village was sentenced Monday in Becker County District Court for felony third-degree burglary.

On July 28, a tribal police officer found him inside the former Thunderbird Express in White Earth village.

Jackson had pulled back metal sheeting over a window to gain entrance, according to court records.

He pleaded guilty Oct. 9, and on Monday District Judge Joe Evans stayed imposition of sentence for five years. He was placed on supervised probation for five years. He must serve 30 days in jail, with credit for 20 days served. He was fined $1,000 plus court fees, but can do community service work in lieu of the fine.
