Multiple Burglaries Suspect 04 Jun 12

Authorities say that they have found the person responsible for multiple home and vehicle break-ins in the City of St. Peter last year. 27-year-old Joshua Michael Pritchard has been charged with 1st-degree burglary for a break-in at a St. Peter home in November of 2011, and has reportedly admitted to being involved with upwards of 100 such incidents in St. Peter throughout the years. Police say Pritchard would break into homes and vehicles in the city primarily looking for cash. He is believed to have been responsible for nearly all of those types of incidents in St. Peter over a 3-year period. He is currently facing the possibility of up to 20 years in prison on the burglary charge, and more charges will likely be filed against him in the future.
