2 men remain in custody, arrested and charged following a cross town crime spree last week in Thief River Falls.
20 year olds Casey Scott Olson and Uriah Lockwood, both of Thief River Falls, made their first appearance Thursday in Pennington County District Court, charged with multiple offenses in a series of burglaries, break-in’s and an assault late last Monday and early Tuesday Morning.
District Judge Tamara Yon set bond for Olson at 25 hundred dollars and ordered Lockwood, who is also wanted on 2 warrants out of Montana, held without bond pending his next court appearance, which is scheduled today.
Assistant County Attorney Kristin Hanson says the two have allegedly been implicated in a crime spree, accused of 3rd Degree Assault, Tampering with a Motor Vehicle, Burglary and Attempted Burglary, Theft and Motor Vehicle Theft and Aiding an Offender.
Multiple incidents were reported including an early morning assault, after a resident confronted Lockwood in the 700 block of Kendall Avenue South just after midnight last Tuesday morning. The resident suffered cuts and bruising in the altercation as Lockwood allegedly fled the scene, abandoning an Arctic Cat 4 wheeler later reported stolen from the 7 hundred block of South Tindolph. A bloody footprint, left at the scene of an attempted break-in at St. Bernard’s Church in Thief River Falls, was one of several clues included in the Police Investigation.
Hansen says Olson is a long time resident with no previous criminal history. Lockwood, who was living with Olson, only recently moved to the community.
