Two Fargo men have been arrested in connection with a garage burglary and are suspects in a series of other garage thefts that have hit Fargo in the past couple of months.
25-year old Steven Monson and 23-year old Nicholas Amicucci face felony theft charges and were arrested on a Fargo warrant by Moorhead police and are awaiting extradition from Clay County. A traffic stop turned up items in their car indentified as stolen from a garage.
Lt. Joel Vettel says burglaries are up in Fargo. At last report , 311 have been reported. That's up 38% from the same period a year ago, something he says police are keeping an eye on.
Vettel says most garage burglaries can be prevented by closing and locking garage doors.
