Morrison County Sheriff arrests four in connection with area burglaries

Monday, Morrison County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 41-year-old Bruce Everett Boyd of rural Randall, 37-year-old Shawn Michael Morello of rural Randall, and 35-year-old Wednesday Maureen Grover, also of rural Randall, in connection with three separate burglaries in Morrison County. Morrison County Sheriff Michel Wetzel said additional charges may be possible in connection with thefts from the Walmart store in Little Falls.

Also arrested Monday, was 29-year-old David Jason Clairmont of rural Motley, in connection with a residential burglary in Motley Township.

Wetzel said that Monday, Jan. 30, two simultaneous investigations occurred in connection with the burglaries in Morrison County.

Wetzel said Morrison County deputies, along with the Randall Police Chief, continued investigations of two thefts that had occurred Jan. 10, in the city of Randall. On that date, OK Tire and Bait reported the theft of numerous tires, and Kierstead Trucking reported the theft of gasoline and brake drums. Officers were able to develop a suspect in these two thefts and prepared a search warrant for a residence in Enchanted Lakes north of Randall.

On Jan. 30, Morrison County deputies, the Randall Police Department, and agents with the Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force executed a search warrant at Boyd’s residence in Enchanted Lakes. During a search of the residence officers located several tires that had been identified as having been stolen from OK Tire and Bait, along with brake drums identified as having been stolen from Kierstead Trucking.

In addition to this investigation, the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office also investigated the report of a burglary which had occurred at a residence in Motley Township earlier in the evening. Responding deputies confirmed that a garage and shed had been broken into at a residence just south and east of the city of Motley.

Morrison County deputies developed Clairmont as the suspect after processing the crime scene and located him at his residence in Cass County just north of the Morrison County line. An air compressor stolen during the burglary was recovered from Clairmont’s residence. Clairmont was arrested and transported to the Morrison County Jail, where he is being held pending formal charges for burglary.

Boyd, Morello and Grover were also arrested and are being held at the Morrison County Jail, pending formal charges for theft and possession of stolen property.
