A Duluth woman accused of burglarizing several rural residences was bound over for arraignment Wednesday in Douglas County Circuit Court.
October Kay Seaberg, 32, faces four felony counts of burglary, one as a party to a crime, and one misdemeanor count of concealing stolen property. She is accused of stealing cash, checks, jewelry, digital cameras and more from residences in Lake Nebagamon and Poplar between Sept. 4 and 14. At one residence, according to the criminal complaint, a pair of men’s size 9 shoes were stolen along with cash, and it appeared that whoever entered the residence had drunk a can of soda, which was found on a shelf in the dining room. Detective Jeff Bethards with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department recognized Seaberg in camera footage from a convenience store where one of the stolen checks was cashed, according to the complaint. A witness told Bethards she heard Seaberg and another woman discussing burglaries they had committed and saw them in possession of checks and IDs in other people’s names. Seaberg’s family members told Bethards that she uses meth, the complaint stated.
If convicted, Seaberg faces a maximum sentence of 12 years and six months imprisonment and up to a $25,000 fine on each of the felony charges. Cash bail of $1,000 was set in the case, with the conditions that Seaberg have no contact with the burglary victims or their residences.
