DULUTH, Minn. — A restaurant cleaner whose alarm clock went off an hour early caught two alleged burglars in the act Wednesday morning at the Clyde Iron Works restaurant.
Brett Allen Delvalley, 28, of Moorhead, Minn., and Jesse D. Hanninen, 26, of Duluth were arraigned Friday in State District Court in Duluth on charges of aiding and abetting second- and third-degree burglary and possession of a police radio during the commission of a crime. Delvalley is also charged with being in possession of burglary tools.
The restaurant cleaner reported for work early, about 5:30 a.m., and heard the sound of change being rattled inside the cash drawers in the businesses’ office, according to police. He immediately called 911 and saw two suspects run from the building. Three police officers responded and nabbed Delvalley and Hanninen on foot near the restaurant.
According to court records, Delvalley has a prior conviction for burglary. He was also convicted in North Dakota for manufacturing methamphetamine. Hanninen has prior convictions for burglary, felony theft and receiving stolen property.
Delvalley was being held in the St. Louis County Jail on $25,000 bail and Hanninen on $20,000 bail.
