Bagley pair in custody for convenience store burglary; more suspects sought

Two Bagley residents are in custody and additional suspects are being sought for a burglary Aug. 1 at the Highway 2 Express Convenience Store in Solway, the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office said Monday.

Authorities said numerous Minnesota State Lottery tickets, sunglasses, cigarettes and cash were taken. The theft was captured on video surveillance. One female suspect was identified at Jennifer Moen, 22, of rural Bagley.

Investigators later received information that some of the stolen lottery tickets had been cashed in at a convenience store in Mahnomen, as well as at a convenience store in Bagley. Video surveillance from those stores allowed officers to identify a male suspect as Tony Lee Iverson, 43, of Bagley.

Both Moen and Iverson were taken into custody Aug. 10 for probable cause. Numerous search warrants have been executed and items from the burglary were recovered, authorities said.
