DULUTH - Four people are in custody for trying to burglarize a home in Superior.
The Superior Police Department, along with the 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 conducted an investigation involving a sophisticated group of Twin Cities Area burglars.
Shared information from the participating law enforcement agencies led to surveillance and continued investigation that linked the group to a substantial burglary of a local Superior residence on September 21st, 2012.
As a result of this surveillance and investigation four Twin Cities area residents have been arrested for burglary.
Sixty-one year old Rex Lee, of Columbia Heights, 42 year old Jason Mussehl, of Montrose and 35 year old Julie Julien of Minneapolis were all arrested in Ramsey County at the request of the Superior Police Department.
An additional suspect, 45 year old Timothy Kielb, of Brooklyn Center was arrested in Pine County.
Extradition is being sought on all four suspects to bring them to Douglas County for formal charging.
It's believed that a majority of the stolen items, from the Superior burglary, have been recovered and will eventually be returned to the rightful owner.
