Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch reports that on May 17 at around 5:11 a.m. the Cass County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a residential burglary alarm at a residence on Green Gables Road in East Gull Lake. Deputies arrived and found that a seasonal residence had been broken into.

Information from a neighbor who reported observing a vehicle leaving the area was investigated and forwarded to the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office. A short time later the vehicle was located and stopped in Crow Wing County. Derek Plante, 22, and Dean Derosier, 20, both of Little Falls, were arrested pending formal charges.
