This tripped the alarm and alerted police.

The men got away with an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry. One man is described as five foot nine and around 250 pounds. The other man is around six foot tall and has a thin build. The men fled and left the family unharmed. A search for the men via the K9 unit was unsuccessful.

The two men are still at large. Anyone with information can call the Waite Park Police Department at (320)-251-3281 or report a tip to the Tri-County Crime Stoppers at (800)-255-1301.

St. Cloud Sued As Costco Sale Under Contention

Facebook Twitter

08/17/2018 - 11:30 AM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A citizen group is suing St. Cloud for selling city park land to Costco for what it contends is less than fair market value.

Costco Wholesale in late July purchased about 19 acres of Heritage Park for $3.5 million. The St. Cloud Times reports Citizens for Government Accountability filed a civil complaint Thursday in state court claiming the sale violates Minnesota law.
Spokesman Jon Austin says the group believes the sale amounts to an illegal business subsidy because the land is worth as much as $9.1 million.
Mayor Dave Kleis says attorneys for the city and Costco are reviewing the complaint. But he also says the lawsuit won't delay Costco's construction of a warehouse, liquor store and gas station or the city's reconstruction of roads near the development.

Investigation Into Foley Robberies Closes After Suspect Discovered

Police have closed the investigation of burglaries at two Foley restaurants that happened earlier this summer, after they have found a suspect.

The Foley Police Department says a search of 37-year-old James Edward Carson's home revealed stolen items that connected him to many burglaries in Foley as well as Benton, Morrison, and Sherburne Counties.

Carson was arrested in Stearns County on July 22. Not long after, police were able to search his house.

Further investigations connected Carson to the crimes at Mr. Jim's and Goodfella's Bar and Grill in Foley, as well as Foley Lumber and a residential burglary in the area. The Mr. Jim burglary was reported on June 29, while the Goodfella's incident took place on July 6. 

Carson is currently being held at Benton County Jail. He is charged with four counts of 3rd degree burglary, one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and one count each of 1st degree damage to property and receiving stolen property.
