Caught red-handed


Caught red-handed

As an owner of Jim’s Electric Company I would like to make a comment on the cooperation I observed on the evening of January 23rd and early morning of Jan. 24.

Baxter Police, Brainerd Police & Crow Wing County Sheriff’s department all responded to a burglary in process. Due to the joint cooperation of all departments they were successful in apprehending two thieves who had committed a burglary on our premises.

It is with cooperation like this that makes me very proud of the respective police forces. The courtesy and professionalism was very impressive and best of all the thieves were caught “red-handed”.

Thank you very much,

Jim Grant
