Wilkin officials seeking home invasion suspect

BRECKENRIDGE, Minn. – The Wilkin County Sheriff’s Department is looking for a man who was believed to have invaded a rural Breckenridge residence late Saturday night.

At 11:56 p.m., the sheriff’s office received a 911 call of a home invasion at a residence east of the city along Highway 210.

A Wahpeton K-9 unit tracked the suspect from the home to a cornfield north of the residence. The chase continued another half-mile to the west toward Breckenridge before the scent was lost.

The suspect was de­scribed as a male wearing a dark-colored shirt or sweatshirt.

Anyone who has information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Wilkin County Sheriff’s Department at (218) 643-8544.
