Homeowners scare off burglarsPublished 11:05am Monday, August 15, 2011
Some burglars were scared away from a rural Pelican Rapids home on Saturday morning after the homeowners caught them burglarizing their garage.
The county sheriff’s office reported that some Fargo residents who are staying at a home on the 5100 block of Pelican Point Drive (on the north shore of Pelican Lake) were woken up around 4:30 a.m. and saw two or three men in their garage. The residents shouted at the men, who dropped a chainsaw they were stealing and ran from the property.
The men still got away with a circular saw. Currently, the sheriff’s office has no suspects, but anyone with possible information on the burglary is encouraged to call 998-8555.Tags: burglary, Pelican Rapids
