Bemidji couple grateful for law enforcement work

Our home in Bemidji was one of many burglarized in late December. Upon calling the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, there was a rapid response to our residence and the investigation was underway.

Unfortunately, the burglaries continued across county lines, but due to great networking and interagency communications, the suspects were arrested within days and the majority of our belongings were discovered by the investigative team who worked around-the-clock hours during record low temperatures.

We want to give credit where credit is due and thank everyone who worked so diligently day and night as a team, as well as the many individual sacrifices, to return our personal and family belongings that meant so much to us.

We are grateful for all law enforcement employees and their efforts in the work they do daily to keep our lives safe and our way of life in order.
