*Update* Pine City American Legion / VFW Robbed
The American Legion and VFW in Pine City were both broken into this weekend, according to American Legion Manager Jack Grave. Grave said a man broke through the back fire door. Grave adds that it appears the man tried to take money from the pull tabs, but there was none inside. The suspect stole bottles of liquor and beer. The bottles were later found in the woods near the Legion.
The crimes occurred Friday morning. Grave says an incident like this is “rare” at the American Legion. The Legion was able to stay open despite the break-in.
Grave says there were no significant losses, but repairs are expected to cost “a couple hundred dollars.”
Jonathon Clair Nickey, 30, of Brainard is in custody for the crimes.
