Construction worker arrested for allegedly stealing from home

CASCADE TOWNSHIP — A construction worker has been arrested after allegedly stealing items from  a house where he was doing exterior renovation work, according to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office. 

The 30-year-old man was on probation for robbery and was in possession of two iPod Touches when he was arrested Sunday night at his temporary Rochester residence, according to Sgt. Scott Behrns.

The man had no reason to enter the house when he was working on the property July 6, Behrns said. He allegedly stole a cellphone and the two iPod Touches, Behrns said. 

The Post-Bulletin generally does not name suspects until they have been charged. The matter has been referred to the Olmsted County Attorney's Office for possible burglary charges, Behrns said.
