Burtrum man facing two felony burglary charges

Nicholas Lynn Rahn, 31, Burtrum is facing two felony burglary charges in Morrison County District Court.

The charges stem from a March 29 incident, when a Morrison County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to an alarm at a residence in Cushing Township.

According to the criminal complaint, when the deputy arrived, he saw that the door had been pushed in, and the burglars had seemingly left a cart full of goods they had attempted to steal at the residence, before fleeing.

Later, law enforcement allegedly found Rahn’s truck at a cabin near the residence along with a tire iron which allegedly matched marks found on the busted door.

The treads of the truck’s tires also allegedly matched marks found at the scene.

Following the truck being impounded, Rahn’s mother allegedly said the truck belonged to her son.

Rahn was later arrested in Little Falls and was taken to the Todd County Jail.

He allegedly said he had driven to the residence and served as a lookout, while an alleged partner who hasn’t been charged as of publication, broke into the residence.

If convicted of both charges, Rahn faces up to 15 years in prison and/or $30,000 in fines.
