Foley man convicted of felony second degree burglary

Brandon Lee Middendorf, 22, Foley was convicted Sept. 1, in Morrison County District Court of felony third degree burglary.

The charge stems from a Dec, 19, 2016 incident, when a homeowner called the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office to report that their home had been burglarized and several items were missing.

Deputies found footprints in the snow leading to another residence, where they found Middendorf, along with evidence linking him to the burglary.

Middendorf’s boot treads matched those around the garage.

Deputies located several of the missing items at two different pawn shops in St. Cloud.

Middendorf was arrested and admitted he was involved in the burglary.

Middendorf was sentenced to 61 days in jail and was given credit for 61 days served.

He was also sentenced to five years of supervised probation and was fined $1,377.92, including restitution.
