Two men charged in Wolf Lake burglary appear in court

The men charged with burglarizing the Wolf Lake Liquor Store last month have made their first court appearance.

Kevin Jerome Basswood Jr., 19, of Mahnomen and Eric Jerome Goodman, 27, of Park Rapids, are charged with third degree burglary.

According to the report filed with the Becker County Courthouse, officers responded to an alarm at the store on May 20. There they found the glass door had been broken through with a couple of larger rocks.

Surveillance video showed Basswood and Goodman breaking into the store, then stealing bottles of liquor and using a garbage can to collect numerous packs of cigarettes.

They now face a maximum sentence of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
