Arrests made in connection to burglaries in Becker, Otter Tail counties

Three people were arrested in connection to a string of residential burglaries in Becker and Otter Tail counties.

The Becker County Sheriff's Office reports two adult males and one female juvenile were taken into custody with property belonging to a victim of a burglary in the early hours of Saturday, Oct. 3.

The arrests have led to the recovery of property and the closure of at least three dozen burglaries committed over the last six to eight weeks, according to the sheriff's office. About 20 of the burglaries were in the Perham area. A stolen car was among the property stolen.

The sheriff's office anticipates more charges will be filed against other individuals as the investigation continues.

Victims of recent burglaries are asked to refrain from contacting the sheriff's office at this time. Individuals will be notified by the sheriff's office as property is recovered during the investigation.

The sheriff's office anticipates charges against the two adult males to be filed Tuesday morning. The adults remain in custody and the juvenile has been released to parents.
