Brown County Burglary 14 Mar 12

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a daytime burglary that took place in Home Township northwest of New Ulm on Monday. Unknown persons entered the unoccupied residence of Joe Hoffmann at some point during the day and took a large amount of cash. Authorities are reminding everyone to lock their doors and windows and be vigilant about suspicious activity, persons, or vehicles near their residence. While there are several legitimate scrap metal dealers and other business people who do go door-to-door, if anyone asks for access to any part of your property or seems suspicious you should document their license plate numbers and description and contact your local authorities.
