According to Nelson, Groth told police that burglars were responsible for the damage, but officers didn't believe his explanation that the intruders gained entrance through the bathroom ceiling.

A Winona Daily News report (http://bit.ly/qfjSHf ) quotes Groth as acknowledging using a synthetic drug known as "plant food."

A telephone listing for Groth was disconnected.
