Travis Eugene Zierke, 30, is facing a Class B felony charge of burglary. He’s accused of burglarizing the garage of a friend at 1738 11th St. S. and pulling a gun on the friend when he confronted him.
Court documents filed Wednesday allege that when police contacted Zierke by phone about the alleged break-in, he told them that the acquaintance had pulled a gun on him first.
His arraignment is set for June 20.
