Moose Lake man jailed for burglary


September 7, 2017

A Moose Lake man is facing felony charges related to the burglary of a cabin on Doyle Road east of Askov on June 26.

According to the charging documents, around 6:15 a.m. Monday, June 26, the Pine County Sheriff’s Office dispatched deputies to a report of a possible burglary in progress near Rutabaga and Tamarack River roads. Two men had been seen traveling west on all-terrain vehicles (ATV), one of whom was wearing a ski mask and pulling a trailer with a lawn mower, generator and motorcycle frame.

Two deputies arrived and one attempted to stop an ATV with an expired license plate by activating emergency lights, the complaint stated.

When the ATV driver did not stop, the deputy next used the siren and pulled up next to the ATV with the trailer. According to the complaint, the ATV driver swerved toward the deputy’s squad car. The deputy avoided hitting the ATV and the ditch.

Both squad cars followed the ATVs north onto Wolf Creek Road, and one was damaged by the ATVs when attempting to get in front of them, the complaint stated. After the vehicles hit the squad car, the ATV drivers fled on foot; one was caught by a deputy, and the other got away.

According to the complaint, Marvin Charles McGuire, II, 51, of Sturgeon Lake, said he was asked to help the other driver, Brian Keith Roseland, 47, of Moose Lake, get some property from a guy who owed him. At the time, McGuire would not identify Roseland as the other driver.

Investigators located a cabin on Doyle Road with the front door open that appeared to have been ransacked and fresh ATV tire tracks by opened sheds. The property owners were contacted and one of them identified the ATVs, the trailer and other items on the trailer as his.

An investigator later responded to a theft at a residence on Rutabaga Road, which was about 1,300 feet from the intersection where Roseland fled from deputies. It was reported a male had stolen a game camera and “punched” the ignition on the property owner’s ATV. A camera memory card was provided to the investigator with an image of the male, identified later by McGuire as Roseland.

On July 11, an investigator learned Roseland had fled to a house in Scottsdale, Arizona, spurring a nationwide warrant for his arrest. Roseland was arrested in Maricopa County, Arizona, and extradited to Minnesota, where he was booked in Pine County jail September 3.

McGuire was charged in late June for his involvement in the incident.

Roseland is charged with felony second degree burglary; felony third degree burglary - steal/commit felony; two counts of felony theft; felony fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle; fleeing a peace officer by a means other than a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor; misdemeanor theft; and damage to property - fourth degree intentional damage - other circumstances, a misdemeanor.
