Moose Lake man facing felony burglary charges

 

February 1, 2018



Daniel Adam Brown, 37, of Moose Lake was arrested on two felony charges related to burglary.

On January 8, a Pine County deputy responded to a report from Hinckley-Finlayson High School. An employee noticed a garage service door had been tampered with. The employee noted a padlock placed on the door was missing, and the door framing insulation was displaced. Multiple tools and related items were also missing.

Surveillance footage revealed a suspect in the early hours of January 6 walking around the garage. The person had a duffle bag slung across their back that appeared to be blue, according to the complaint.

On January 15, a deputy responded to a welfare check at a business in Hinckley where a male had been standing outside, trying to stay warm. When the deputy arrived, he talked with the male and asked for his name. He was identified as Daniel Brown and had an active warrant. He also had a blue and black bag with him.

The deputy searched Brown’s person and found two flashlights and a wire cutter. Various tools were found in Brown’s bag, tools which are “commonly used to commit burglaries,” the complaint stated.

Brown said he was on probation for burglary.

Staff at the school identified several tools Brown was carrying as belonging to the school.

Brown is being charged with a third degree felony offense. If convicted, he faces up to five years imprisonment with a $10,000 fine. The second felony charge is for possession of burglary or theft tools, which could result in up to three years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.
