2 Charged with 1st Degree Burglary in Ramsey
Two men have been charged with first degree burglary after the homeowners interrupted a break-in.
According to the criminal complaint, the two residents returned to their home on Rivlyn Avenue in Ramsey around 1:44 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10, and saw a white pickup truck in the driveway.
The homeowner saw a suspect leaning inside the house through an open window and saw a second man inside the house. He asked them what they were doing, and they said they were looking for items, according to the compliant.
The suspect in the window then allegedly ran to the truck and began driving away. The homeowner went inside, and the second suspect allegedly pushed him down as he escaped out of the house. The suspect then jumped into the back portion of the pickup truck.
Police found the pickup driving in Anoka and stopped it. The suspects were identified as 28-year-old Jordan Michael Armour of Elk River and 27-year-old Corey James Peterson of Taylors Falls.
Armour and Peterson have both been charged with one count of first degree burglary. If convicted, they each face up to 20 years in prison and up to $35,000 in fines.
