North Dakota Deputy Arrested in Crookston Break-In
CROOKSTON (AP) – A North Dakota sheriff’s deputy has been charged in a break-in at a Minnesota convenience store.
Police say Adam Koenig, 22, of Park River, N.D., was found lying behind the till of a Holiday gas station in Crookston early Thursday morning. They were responding to a report of a suspicious person with blood on his face outside the station, and arrived to find a glass door smashed in.
Police say Koenig was wearing a badge on his belt and identified himself as a Walsh County, N.D., sheriff’s deputy.
Koenig was charged with burglary and criminal damage to property, and was in the Polk County jail on Friday. His attorney didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press seeking comment.
