4/1/2013 3:36:00 PM Minneapolis man charged in connection with Long Lake burglary
A Minneapolis man was charged with second-degree burglary in connection with a Long Lake burglary that was reported on Jan. 26.
Mark Tracy Seaborn, 45, was charged last week. According to the complaint, Seaborn broke into a Long Lake home through a basement window and took numerous items, including jewelry, an iPhone and multiple electronic items.
Three burglaries on Wolf Point Trail in Long Lake were reported on Jan. 26. Although only charged with one of the burglaries, it is believed that all three Wolf Pointe Trail burglaries are connected, as well as burglaries in several other western suburbs, including Wayzata, according to Wayzata Police.
Officers noted shoe prints next to the house that were similar to other recent burglaries in the area. The homeowners were also able to track the stolen iPhone, which showed it was in Minneapolis.
On March 14, Minnetonka Police responded to a residential burglar alarm and Seaborn was arrested. Details investigators received from that arrest combined with information from Wayzata's investigation led to the execution of two search warrants in North Minneapolis. Property stolen from one of the Wolf Pointe burglaries as well as property from other jurisdiction's burglaries were recovered. The boots allegedly used during the crimes were also seized.
Seaborn has multiple convictions for burglary and is currently on parole for a burglary conviction, according to the complaint. Because of his criminal history, bail in this case was set at $500,000.
