Woman charged after alleged burglary
A Red Wing woman is facing burglary charges after a couple returned home to find many of their electronics packed in their suitcases.
In a Goodhue County Court complaint filed Monday, Kristina Marie Rodahl, 21, 521 Maple St., was charged with one count of first-degree burglary. According to that document, Stephen and Stephanie Teachout, 468 Eighth St., returned home at about 11 p.m. July 4 and found Rodahl on their front porch.
Rodahl told them she hadn’t entered their house and quickly walked away. However, many of the Teachouts’ electronics had been packed in suitcases and left in the living room. Stephan Teachout’s wallet was also missing, though it was later found in another location in the house. A ladder was found leaned up against the house, and it’s believed entry was made through the second-story bathroom window.
Stephanie Teachout was able to identify Rodahl in a photo lineup, the complaint states. Officers arrested Rodahl for her connection with the burglary Sunday. She later told investigators that she had been high on methamphetamine at the time of the burglary and that she didn’t know how she got in the house.
However, Rodahl admitted to being in the house and using a ladder to climb through the window, though she stated she took nothing from the house.
Rodahl will next appear in court Aug. 2. She is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
