Three men have been charged after they admitted to burglarizing a Blaine home because they needed drug money.

The burglary was reported at 9:38 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at a home on the 11200 block of Zest Court Northeast in Blaine.


The victim said he returned home to find muddy footprints in his living room and multiple items missing.

According to the criminal complaint, 30-year-old Timothy Michael Aure of Bloomington, 33-year-old Shawn Michael Carter of Coon Rapids and 32-year-old Thomas Timothy May of St. Louis Park were being interviewed by Bloomington police regarding a separate matter, and all three admitted to committing the burglary in Blaine.

Carter told police they needed drug money, so they drove to Blaine. He said they walked up to a home in a new development and found that the door was unlocked, so they walked inside.

Once they confirmed no one was home, they took golf clubs, a vacuum, an iPad, a laptop, jewelry and other items, according to the complaint.

Carter said they pawned some of the property at We Pay More Pawn in Crystal or New Hope. The rest of the items were at Carter’s home in Coon Rapids or still in the vehicle, he said.

All three suspects have been charged with second-degree burglary. If convicted, they each face up to 10 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines.
