South Moorhead Burglary

Post Date:09/10/2020 11:10 pm

On September 10, 2020 at 5:50 PM the Moorhead Police Department responded to a burglary in progress in the 3000 block of 18th Street South. A caller reported that several individuals were observed breaking a window and entering a residence. Officers responded to the area, located the residence that was entered and set up a perimeter while coordinating a response to the burglary. The call generated a large police presence in the area.

Two individuals were detained without incident, one as they attempted to flee the residence. A third suspect was uncooperative and refused to exit the residence. Moorhead Police K9 KASH was used to assist Officers in taking that individual into custody. In total 3 individuals were taken into custody and there were no injuries sustained by the suspects or Officers during the incident.   

The investigation showed this was not a random act and there is not a continuing threat to the public. All three individuals were booked at the Clay County Jail pending formal complaint charges from the Clay County Attorneys Office.

There is no further information to release at this time
