Millville Gun Shop Burglary Results in Federal Indictment
Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - A federal grand jury has returned an indictment connected to a burglary at a Wabasha County gun shop last year.
38-year-old Alex Boyd, 30-year-old Sasha Erdner and 19-year-old Trinity James Wicka are accused of stealing and attempting to sell approximately 75 firearms stolen from the Millville Rod and Gun Shop on September 1st of last year.
“This was one of the largest Minnesota gun shop burglaries we’ve seen in the past few years,” said James Modzelewski, ATF Special Agent in Charge. “Although we’ve been able to identify folks involved in the robbery and have recovered some of the stolen firearms, there are still a number of guns left to recover.”
The indictment alleges Wicka and two of his associates burglarized the Millville business by kicking in the door and breaking into glass display cases. Most of the 75 firearms taken from the gun shop were handguns.
The next day, Boyd and three other people allegedly committed two aggravated robberies in Winona while possessing guns stolen from the Millville gun shop, while Ernder is accused of allowing Wicka to store some of the stolen weapons at her residence.
