A Duluth woman will spend four years in prison for a string of rural Douglas County burglaries that took place in September.
October Kay Seaberg, 32, pleaded no contest in Douglas County Circuit Court last week to three counts of burglary, one as a party to a crime. Charges of concealing stolen property, an additional count of burglary and uttering a forgery were dismissed, but read in for sentencing. She was sentenced to four years of confinement and three years extended supervision. Seaberg was ordered to maintain absolute sobriety, undergo alcohol and mental health assessments and have no contact with the victims. She was also ordered to pay $1,220.96 restitution and court costs.
According to the criminal complaint:
Seaberg stole cash, checks, jewelry, digital cameras and more from residences in Lake Nebagamon and Poplar between Sept. 4 and Sept. 14.
Douglas County Sheriff’s Department Detective Jeff Bethards recognized Seaberg in camera footage from a convenience store where one of the stolen checks was cashed. Her driver’s license and social security card were found in bags containing stolen items discovered on a Maple property.
