***Breaking News*** [Update] Four Pine City Teens Suspected in Rash of Burglaries
The Pine County Sheriff’s Office reports that a 19-year-old and three 18-year-olds are in the Pine County Jail for burglary and theft at The Cricket Liquor Store in Rock Creek, Tuesday, around 3:20 a.m. All four teens are from Pine City.
Pine County Chief Deputy, Steve Ovick, tells Red Rock Radio the teens could face up to eight counts of burglary, and says the office believes they may be involved with up to four other recent burglaries of area businesses. He called the theft a “significant amount,” but did not give an exact figure. The county attorney will determine the degree of the charges.
The teens are Michael Schouveller, 18, Derek Marihart, 19, Spencer Knutson, 18, and Kaitlyn Nosbush, 18. All four are due in Pine County Court late Wednesday or by noon Thursday, according to court adminstration.
Police continue to investigate the case.
