Jerry Carl Wolf, 36, Sartell, was charged April 15, with one felony count of third degree burglary in the Morrison County District Court.
The Morrison County Sheriff’s Office received a report Nov. 25, 2012, that a storage unit had been broken into by someone using a crow bar. A number of items were reported stolen, including audio speakers, tools and a 2009 Honda Model 3000 generator, worth approximately $1,900.
The Sheriff’s Office received a call from the Benton County Sheriff’s Office Jan. 3, reporting Wolf had been interviewed as a suspect in a number of burglaries.
During the interview, Wolf allegedly admitted to both stealing the generator from a storage unit in Morrison County and selling it to a business in Waite Park.
The business was contacted and an employee confirmed Wolf sold it a generator. The generator was picked up and the victim confirmed it was the generator that was in his storage shed.
If arrested and convicted, Wolf faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
