Police: Burglary ring hits a dozen Minn. homes

DULUTH, Minn. – Police are investigating about 10 suspects who they say are responsible for a ring of at least a dozen residential burglaries spanning northeast Minnesota.

Five suspects have been taken into custody, Hermantown police reported Wednesday.

During a Nov. 12 search warrant executed at the home of one suspect, Hermantown investigators found what they described as a large amount of property stolen from homes in the region.

Four adults were taken into custody while committing a burglary at a Rice Lake Township home Tuesday, police said. The two men and two women, all Duluth residents, were awaiting formal charges, which should include second-degree burglary, police said.

The burglars were responsible for at least 12 home invasions in the cities of Duluth, Hermantown and Cloquet and the townships of Midway, Rice Lake, Canosia, Duluth and Lakewood over the past several months, police said.
