A joint investigation by law enforcement agencies in two states led to the arrest of four people suspected of being part of a sophisticated group of Twin Cities area burglars.
Shared information from the participating agencies led to surveillance and continued investigation that linked the group to a substantial burglary of a local Superior residence on Sept. 21, according to a release by Deputy Chief Nick Alexander with the Superior Police Department. As a result of this surveillance and investigation, four Twin Cities area residents have been arrested for burglary. Three suspects were arrested, at the request of the Superior Police Department, in Ramsey County, Minn. -- Rex A. Lee, 61, of Columbia Heights, Minn., Jason M. Mussehl, 42, of Montrose, Minn. and Julie J. Julien, 34, of Minneapolis.
An additional suspect, Timothy M. Kielb, 45, of Brooklyn Center, Minn., was arrested in Pine County, Minn.
Extradition is being sought on all four suspects to bring them to Douglas County for formal charging. It is believed that a majority of the stolen items, from the Superior burglary, have been recovered and will eventually be returned to the rightful owner.
The agencies that conducted the joint investigation included the Superior Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and at least four Minnesota law enforcement agencies, to include but not limited to Minneapolis Police Department, Brooklyn Center Police Department, Centennial Lakes Police Department and the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.
This case remains under investigation.
