St. Cloud Police Investigation Nets Several Arrests
ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man was arrested Wednesday in connection to several ongoing investigations.
The incident happened at about 4:00 p.m. in the 1100 block of 14th Avenue Southeast in St. Cloud.
Lieutenant Lori Ellering says authorities used a search warrant at the home. As officers arrived several people were seen fleeing the house on foot. The St. Cloud SWAT team, police dogs and other law enforcement searched the area and found the suspects.
Officers arrested 22-year-old Bryant Garth in connection to a robbery that happened earlier this month. Two others were detained during the search but were released pending possible future charges.
Ellering says the search warrant was a result of several ongoing investigations including a robbery on November 19th, a shooting on Thanksgiving Day where a victim was shot in the foot, a second shooting on Sunday morning where the victim was shot in the back and a third shooting in the 1100 block of 14th Avenue Southeast where shots were fired into a vehicle.
Police believe all the incidents are related.
Three more people from St. Cloud have been arrested through the investigation including 19-year-old Taylor Danielson for armed robbery, 19-year-old Rauch Chuol for Sunday's shooting and a 16-year-old girl for being an accomplice in an armed robbery.
All these cases remain active and ongoing.
