A Minneapolis man has been charged with second-degree burglary in connection with a string of burglaries that occurred in Long Lake.
A crime alert was issued after three burglaries occurred on Wolf Point Trail in Long Lake. The Wayzata PD issued the alert. While only charged with one burglary at the time, it is believed that the suspect is connected to all three, as well as a number of burglaries in Wayzata and the western suburbs.
It all started when Minnetonka Police were called to respond to a burglar alarm at a residence on March 14. The suspect was apprehended shortly after the incident and was arrested. Investigators received details in the case that included information from Wayzata’s investigation. Two search warrants were executed in North Minneapolis.
Property that was stolen from one of the burglaries on Wolf Pointe Trail, as well as property from a burglary in another jurisdiction was recovered. The boots worn during the crime were also taken into custody.
The suspect, Mark Tracy Seaborn, 45, has multiple burglary convictions on his record and is currently on parole for a prior burglary conviction. Because he has a sizeable criminal history, his bail was set at a half million dollars.
The successful arresting of the suspect was the result of a close working relationship between Minnetonka Police and the Wayzata investigators, as well as patrol work by the Minnetonka Police. Other neighboring jurisdictions also assisted in the case.
