The time of day appears to be “daytime hours” while many homes are unoccupied with school resuming and homeowners at work. Properties entered appear to have a similar pattern; point of entry/exit.  

Sheriff Brent Lindgren asking for the public’s help by being vigil in looking after your neighbors’, family, and friends’ homes and properties while they may be away at work and school. Look for  any suspicious vehicles that you either know or believe do not belong in the area. 

Vehicles of interest to the sheriff’s office include an older red, full-size Bronco or Blazer, a smaller red car with a loud exhaust, and a white cube van with the wording similar to “Dunn” on the side of it. 

Anyone having seen or seeing vehicles matching these descriptions in an area where they do or did not belong are asked to contact the Mille Lacs County Sheriff’s Office with as much detailed information as they can; license plate, occupant descriptions, and/or direction of travel.

Lindgren thanks every citizen for their anticipated cooperation. The eyes and ears of the community are many and if we work together we can better secure our neighborhoods from undesirables looking to victimize us.

Sheriff’s office numbers are 320-983-8250 and toll free 888-860-8250 ask for investigators Don Lorge, Brad Barnes or sheriff Lindgren.
