A Waubun woman made her initial court appearance after being arrested on felony third degree burglary charges.
Lisa Ann Maas, 48, was arrested Oct. 10.
According to a complaint filed with Becker County District Court, a Becker County deputy saw a vehicle driving through the U-Lock gated storage units, and waved at the driver to stop.
When the vehicle did not stop, the officer pulled them over.
The driver, Leslie Joy Keezer, told the officer they were trying to find her uncle’s house.
The officer recognized one of the two male occupants in the back as having a warrant out for his arrest, but upon further inquiries, discovered both of the men - Duane Dale Moran and Robbie James Bellanger - both had warrants out for their arrest.
An officer found two tops of paddle locks that had been cut inside the pocket in one of their pockets, and the search of the vehicle turned up the bottoms of locks, a large machete, bolt/wire cutters and a trunk full of items in the back, including drug related items, a wrench set, wire cutters, chainsaw, power inverter, tools and more.
Two pill bottles with clear liquid were also found in the front passenger seat and glove box.
Maas, who owned the vehicle, said the items in the trunk belonged to her, but after authorities questioned the owners of the storage units that were missing locks, they were able to identify missing items from their units as the ones in Maas’s trunk.
Footprints at the storage units also matched those of Moran and Bellanger.
Maas faces a maximum of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.
