Stolen items from a burglary in Jamestown, N.D. were found in Brainerd, helping North Dakota authorities arrest one of the men involved in the crime.

According to the Jamestown Sun newspaper, four Jamestown people were charged with burglary and theft of property related to a series of break-ins at storage units around Jamestown.

One of the suspects charged, Casey Allan Tice, was captured in Crow Wing County and faces 25 charges in complaints filed May 28 in Southeast District Court in Jamestown. Tice is charged with 22 counts of burglary, Class C felonies; and three counts of theft of property, with one being a Class B felony, one a Class C felony and one a Class B misdemeanor.

Jamestown police detective Leroy Gross said most of the items taken from the Jamestown storage unit break-ins were recovered in Crow Wing, Morrison and Cass counties.

The Crow Wing, Morrison and Cass sheriff's departments and the Brainerd and St. Cloud police departments helped the Stutsman County Sheriff's Office with the stolen property.

Most of the break-ins occurred in Jamestown between August of 2014 and April of 2015. The information provided by the community helped locate items stolen from Jamestown in Brainerd, which led to finding Tice in Crow Wing County, the Stutsman County Sheriff's Office said.

"We have more storage unit break-ins where we haven't solved the case," Gross said. "This (the case) is still being investigated and more charges could be filed."

Gross said there is still a lot of unclaimed recovered stolen property, including some Husqvarna tools. He said he contacted the Husqvarna company to see if the company could help identify the owner of the tools.
