Large Law Enforcement Presence In Stewartville Explained
Stewartville, MN (KROC AM News) - Residents in a Stewartville neighborhood may have noticed a large law enforcement presence Friday morning.
Olmsted County deputies, Rochester police officers, and some state troopers were sent to a residence in the 2000 block of Lark Lane NE around 4:30 am.
The woman who lives there was away from home when she began receiving text messages from a former boyfriend. She suspected he was in her residence and called 911. A sheriff's office spokesman says the man is "well known" to local authorities and it was learned he was wanted on a warrant.
Officers set up a perimeter around the home and tried to make contact with the man but there was no answer from inside. A robot was sent inside around 6:00 am and it determined no one was in the home.
The scene was cleared 30 minutes later and it’s not known at this point if any charges will be filed because there was no proof the man had gone inside.
