One of four men arrested in connection to a number of home and vehicle break-ins around Woodland Drive last August was sentenced in Goodhue County District Court Oct. 7.
Joshua Richard Buren Edmundson, 21, was convicted of theft, a misdemeanor. A felony charge of first-degree burglary was dismissed in a stay of imposition.
Edmundson was sentenced to 46 days in jail and one year of probation. He received credit for 46 days served and was released from Goodhue County Jail after the sentencing.
According to a court complaint filed Aug. 25, Edmundson went on Aug. 16 with two other men to a house on Woodland Drive, later identified to be Donald Kliewer’s residence. Edmundson said he waited outside while the others entered the garage and came out with a case of beer and bottles of liquor. Edmundson then carried the alcohol back to a residence.
Three more Red Wing men, Shawn Michael Goulette, 24, Jordan Aaron Born, 23, and Joseph Iron Piper, 18, were also charged for with first- and second-degree burglary for their roles in the string of break-ins.
Born and Goulette have both pleaded not guilty to the charges. A jury trial for Goulette is scheduled to begin in November, and Born’s is scheduled for January.
Piper has yet to enter a plea and will appear in court again Oct. 21.
