CASS LAKE — A Cass Lake man was convicted Thursday for his part in eight felony crimes committed in October 2011.

David Arthur Larose, 27, was found guilty of six offenses involving an elderly woman in Federal Dam on or about Oct. 28, 2011, including: first-degree burglary of an occupied dwelling, first-degree burglary with a dangerous weapon, first-degree burglary with an assault on a person in the building, kidnapping to facilitate felony or flight, false imprisonment-intentional restraint and third-degree arson.

Larose was also found guilty of theft of a motor vehicle and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in Cass Lake on or around Oct. 27, 2011.

Larose’s two accomplices in the incidents, Gordon Lee Dunn, also known as “DeeDee Harrison,” 35, of Cass Lake and David Joseph, also known as “DJ,” 34, of Staples, plead guilty to their crimes earlier this year, Cass County officials said in a press release. Dunn plead guilty on March 20 and was sentenced to 126 months in prison. Joseph plead guilty on Oct. 3 and is awaiting sentencing.

Larose is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 18 in Cass County District Court.
