DASSEL -- Meeker county authorities believe they've solved a string of crimes in a single incident.

Sheriff Brian Cruze says deputies recovered two stolen vehicles Wednesday night just before 11:30 p.m. Officers found the vehicles near the intersection of 7th Street and Pacific Avenue in Dassel.

As part of the investigation, they also discovered items stolen in two separate burglaries in Dassel. Property was recovered from a rural Dassel church and a local business in town.

Deputies arrested 39-year-old Barry Klingelhoets of Dassel on suspicion of motor vehicle theft and felony burglary.
