Christian Dahn convicted of burglary and possession of dangerous weapon

On Dec. 18, Morrison County District Courts convicted Christian Carl Dahn, 31, Little Falls of one felony count of first degree burglary while in possession of a dangerous weapon.

Dahn was also convicted of third degree possession of drugs stemming from a Feb. 27, 2012, incident, but given a stay of imposition which means the charges may be lowered to a misdemeanor if he abides by the stipulations placed on him during probation. For that charge, Dahn was fined $135 and given 20 years supervised probation.

Dismissed against Dahn were two counts of first degree burglary.

On April 30, officers responded to a burglary in northeast Little Falls. The occupants of the residence said they were home during the burglary and were afraid one of the subjects was still in the home.

Multiple items were missing including an airsoft rifle. The officers located a knife sheath without the knife and a Marlboro cigarette. Neither belonged to the residents.

One of the suspects was located walking nearby and placed under arrest. He was in possession of the missing rifle.

Dahn, the other suspect, was located lying on the ground in northeast Little Falls. He was also placed under arrest. Dahn had a pack of Marlboro cigarettes and a knife in a sheath on his belt.

Later, an officer responded to another report of two men, identified as Dahn and the other person, crawling through a dog door in order to grab some different clothes. Neither man had permission to be in the residence.

The victim was afraid of the men and said they bragged about a burglary they had just committed.

Dahn was sentenced to 48 months in prison, stayed for 20 years and given credit for the 161 days he spent in jail. He was fined $135, ordered to pay restitution of $3,284 and given 20 years of supervised probation.

The Morrison County Attorney’s Office said Dahn’s two felony burglary charges were dismissed because he pleaded guilty to one of the charges.
