Man Linked to Burglaries Pleads Guilty
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man has entered into a plea agreement to settle charges involving a number of residential burglaries in the Rochester area last summer.
38-year-old Todd Black admitted to a third degree burglary charge and is scheduled to be sentenced on November 9th.
He was arrested last August after a search of his home in Southeast Rochester turned up numerous items that had been reported missing in residential burglaries in rural northwest Olmsted County. He was caught because one of the burglary victims had an app that was able to track a stolen electronic device to Black’s residence. Investigators also obtained security camera video showing black using a stolen debit card at a local convenience store.
Among the items found at Black’s residence were several instruments owned by Century High School that had been reported missing after they were sent to Schmidt Music for repairs.
