A Moose Lake man will serve prison time for his role in multiple burglaries and thefts that took place in Carlton and Pine counties in 2012.
Judge Dale Wolf sentenced Dennis James Raway, 30, to 21 months in prison for one felony count of theft, with credit for 252 days already served. Another charge of receiving stolen property was dismissed as part of a plea agreement. Raway must also pay $2,659 in restitution as well as $210 in court costs.
Raway was also found guilty in Pine County on June 4, 2012, of receiving stolen property and sentenced to 23 months in prison. Both prison terms are to be served concurrently.
According to the complaint filed in the matter, the Moose Lake Police Department obtained a search warrant on Aug. 30, 2012, for a house in the 3000 block of Military Road in Moose Lake after an investigation into a rash of burglaries and thefts in southern Carlton and northern Pine counties. The house was owned by Joshua Dale Boedigheimer, 36.
Upon their arrival, officers met with Boedigheimer, who agreed to cooperate with them. At that time he admitted to possessing numerous stolen items, including four new snowblowers, one of which he had already pawned. Boedigheimer also confirmed that he and Raway also possessed a stolen four-wheeler. He then showed officers his garage and the surrounding area, where multiple stolen items were found, including tools, guns, hunting equipment and electronic games and devices. In all, 41 stolen items were recovered from Boedigheimer’s residence, with an estimated total value exceeding $10,000.
Both men were charged in Pine as well as Carlton County.
Boedigheimer received a stayed sentence of 13 months in prison on April 17, 2013, as well as six months of local confinement. He was placed on three years of supervised probation.
