Breckenridge homeowner turns Taser on four burglary suspects

BRECKENRIDGE, Minn. – Four men are in custody after police here said the victim reported them trying to kick down the door of his home in the 400 block of 9th Street South early Tuesday in order to break in.

The victim said he was able to fend them off with a Taser, Breckenridge Police Chief Nate Harder said.

The four arrested on suspicion of first-degree burglary are Mohamed H. Abdillahi, 18, Abnor Luma, 20, Austin Robert Gould, 19, and Jason Travis Griffin, 18, according to Harder.

Harder said the home-owner reported seeing the suspects take off from his house in a car after the incident, which happened just after 3 a.m. Tuesday.

With the help of Wahpeton, N.D., police and the Wilkin County Sheriff’s Department, Breckenridge police later found the car near the North Dakota state line.
