Night time mischief

By Staff | Oct 3, 2008

A rash of overnight burglaries reportedly occurred in the early hours of Oct. 2 and reported to the Estherville Police Department by four businesses.

“We are continuing with our investigation,” said Estherville Police Chief Eric Milburn. “At this time, we have no hard suspects but we have information which we will be acting on to find out who is responsible.”

The first call received by the Emmet County dispatcher was logged at 6:28 a.m. Oct. 2. An employee at Holiday Express, South 28th Street, reported a breaking and entering had occurred in the overnight hours. It was noted the candy machine was broken and a door was kicked in. It was not determined at that time exactly which items, if any, were missing.

At 7:54 a.m., an employee at the Hoyer Chiropractic Clinic called the police department to report finding evidence of a breaking and entering. No specific information was given.

An employee at the dental office of Dr. John Lester, 214 N. Sixth St., reported an overnight breaking and entering had occurred. Some money was removed from the premises but the employee was uncertain if any other items were removed.

While entry was not gained, an attempted breaking and entering was reported by an employee in the dental office of Dr. Dennis Bruns and Dr. Greg Williams located at 326 West Central Ave. This call was received at 11 a.m.

The police department is asking citizens to call 362-3515 if they have any information about these incidents.
