An arrest has been made in connection with the attempted burglaries at three Henderson businesses that occurred in the early morning hours of Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Serenity Rose Schnoor, 19, of Waseca, was arrested on Wednesday, Sept. 2 and has been charged with third-degree burglary, a felony, in Sibley County District Court.
If convicted, the charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
Henderson Police Chief Dmitri Ikonitski said he received a phone call that led to the arrest after sharing video images of a male and female suspect on social media.
Ikonitski said Schnoor took all of the responsibility for the attempted burglaries and property damage that occurred at Charlie’s Bar, Henderson RoadHaus and Wagar’s. However, Ikonitski is still searching for the male suspect caught on camera, and reported he had a list of possible suspects.
According to court documents, Schnoor confessed to entering Charlie’s Bar without consent and with intent to steal money, and has declined to name the male she was with.
The Henderson Police Department responded to a series of attempted burglaries that occurred between 2-3:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25.
The lower half of the glass door at Charlie’s Bar in Henderson had been shattered. The suspect or suspects had pried open the top of the ATM in the business, but were unable to break into the ATM’s money box. The suspect(s) also used keys that were found in a drawer to attempt to get into the business safe, but were unsuccessful.
Ikonitski said the doors at RoadHaus and Wagar’s also had damaged glass, but neither of those businesses were entered. A light in front of a Main Street residential home was also damaged.
