WADENA -- Two arrests by the Morrison County Sheriff's Office may break the case of a burglary at Blueberry Pines golf course.

On Aug. 24, investigators with the Wadena County Sheriff's Office received a teletype about the arrest of two people in connection with a burglary at a golf course in Morrison County with similarities to the Wadena County case.

"The two individuals Morrison County arrested are of high interest to Wadena County due to the recent burglary at Blueberry Pines Golf Course," Sheriff Mike Carr said in a press release.
