MN Woman Pleads Guilty To Burglary Of A Iowa Farm
The Minnesota woman who was charged with 12 crimes for burglarizing a north Iowa farm has taken a plea deal. The guilty plea comes after pleading not guilty back in May.
According to reports, the farm was in the 9700 block of 380th Street in Thompson on four different occasions between July 28th, 2021, and August 15, 2021. Court documents say that the doors were kicked in and over $8,000 worth of items were stolen from a garage and two outbuildings.
Reports say, Melissa Ann Frost of Blue Earth, Minnesota was seen on trail camera footage stealing items from the farm.
In March 2022, Frost plead not guilty to “ongoing criminal conduct, three counts of second-degree theft, four counts of third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief, and three counts of possession of burglar’s tools.”
In a plea agreement filed in the Winnebago County District Court on Tuesday, Frost plead guilty to “ongoing criminal conduct, second-degree theft, and third-degree burglary.” Nine other charges were dismissed.
Reports say that Frost has admitted to being at the property several times, but only admitted to taking things once, but a security camera caught her on camera three times.
A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for May 9th.
