According to this Dakota County Criminal Complaint, a man reported a burglary had occurred at his parents’ house and that he was a witness to the crime. The burglars stole two TVs and a laptop from the home while he was forced to watch.
From the complaint:
On March 3, 2013, Eagan police responded to a residence located in Eagan, Dakota County, Minnesota on a report of a burglary. Officers spoke to Daniel Myhre. Myhre stated that he was a witness to the burglary. Myhre stated that he had been brought to his parent’s home by a friend. Myhre stated that he unlocked the door to the home with a key which is left outside and then put the key back and entered the residence. Myhre stated that unbeknownst to him, there were three males who entered the residence through the unlocked door. Myhre stated that before he knew it the men were upon him and made him stand by while they took items from his parent’s home. Myhre stated that the men took the TV from a bedroom, the flat screen TV from the living room and a laptop computer.
Police later learned that Myhre had pawned one of the TV’s that exactly matched the TV stolen from his parent’s home. Police then returned to the home and spoke to Myhre again. Following a Miranda warning, Myhre stated that he brought the TV to Maxit Pawn in Bloomington and pawned it under his name. He also eventually admitted to taking and pawning the two other items that were taken from his parent’s home.
Clearly this man is in the running for Eagan’s Child of the Year. Pawning items stolen from your own parents’ home and then filing a false police report to cover it up is some great stuff; his parents are probably so very proud especially know that everyone in town knows the amazing child they raised.
What do you think about this one? Do you think this guy has probably been stealing from his parents for a very long time? Do you think he’s asked for money numerous times and they’re finally telling him no? Are you surprised that he would steal and then report the incident to the cops and claim he was a witness? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
