NU Man Storage Unit Theft 22 Feb 13

A New Ulm man faces multiple felony charges in Nicollet County for allegedly burglarizing storage units in St. Peter. Several firearms and other items stolen from two storage facilities were found in a storage unit in Courtland rented out by 48-year-old Buck Otto White. He was been charged with 3rd-degree burglary, theft, receiving stolen property, and 8 counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm this week. A search warrant allowed investigators to place a GPS tracking device on White’s van, and it was reportedly tracked to the storage facilities where the crimes occurred. White’s storage unit in Courtland was searched the day after the crimes occurred, and several stolen items were recovered. White was arrested Sunday, and remains in custody in the Nicollet County Jail.
