Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – A Rochester teenager has been charged as a suspect in a recent home invasion and police may make more arrests.

Arrested Thursday was Kenneth Maclin, who turns 20 next Tuesday.

He and three others are accused of entering an Elton Hills Dr residence around 2 a.m. Aug. 14th. The man and woman who live there were confronted by two of the intruders and one pointed a gun at them, ordering them to the floor. The intruders took a number of items and the woman’s purse.

Police received a tip the next day involving a car seen near the residence about the time of the invasion. The same car was later linked to a different crime and it was located by officers and searched. Some of the stolen items were still in the car – and a card with Maclin’s name. Police searched his home and found the woman’s stolen purse. Police also used video from a security camera at the victim’s home to ID Maclin as one of the intruders.

Maclin was arraigned Friday on a felony robbery charge and two other counts. Bail was set at $200,000.

Police say it appears the intruders went to the wrong house looking for drugs.
