Stearns County Deputies Craig Pogatshnik and Dennis Kern responded to a couple of thefts from fish houses during the first week of February. Both of these thefts occurred on Pearl Lake in Maine Prairie Township.
Deputy Pogatshnik took the first theft Feb. 4. This house had been broken into overnight and the owner was missing only a deep cycle battery. The other theft was reported the following day and was in the same area and was probably broken into at the same time as the other, sometime overnight Wednesday into Thursday. The second owner was missing a fishing rod, an electric drill, and several other smaller items.
Anyone with information on these thefts is asked to contact the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office at (320) 259-3702.
