WADENA -- Three juveniles were arrested Friday in connection with a Sept. 29 burglary at Bill's Guns, two miles north of Wadena.
Wadena County Sheriff Mike Carr reported two 17-year-old males from Sebeka were arrested after allegedly breaking into Bill's Guns and stealing several handguns, rifles, shotguns and ammunition. A search was conducted at one of the suspects homes and several firearms were recovered.
The third suspect, a 17-year-old male from New York Mills, was also arrested, Carr said.
First-degree burglary charges are expected to be filed against the suspects this week, Carr said. Two of the three juveniles are being held in detention pending formal charges.
The Sebeka and New York Mills police departments, the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department, the DNR, and the State Patrol assisted in the arrests.
