Warrants issued for 2 in VC DQ burglary
Arrest warrants were issued for two suspects on Tuesday who Valley City police allege broke into the Dairy Queen on North Central Avenue.
Police were seeking Annalice Monique Cade, 21, for a charge of burglary, a Class C felony, and theft of property, a Class A misdemeanor; and Jacob Lowell Renfro, 26, for criminal conspiracy to commit burglary, a Class C felony. Class C felonies carry a penalty of five years in prison and $5,000 fine and a Class A misdemeanor is punishable by one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
Valley City Police Chief Fred Thompson issued a news release about the burglary Tuesday afternoon, and at 4 p.m. he said he expected the suspects to be in custody shortly.
“They’re out there chasing her down right now,” he said. “I put that (news release) out, and it bothered me, but they’re not the type to follow the news, and they’re not going any place.”
The Dairy Queen was entered at about 1 a.m. Friday and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken from a safe. Surveillance video captured the crime in progress, and that, along with no forced entry on the door or the safe and witness statements led police to figure the crime was committed by a former employee, according to the release. Thompson said he believed the proceeds from the theft were being used to purchase a vehicle so the suspects could leave town.
The VCPD asks that anyone with information on the case call it at (701) 845-3110.
