Barnes County Sheriff Randy McClaflin is asking people who have noticed items missing from their residences, especially along Peak Road and Kathryn Road, to contact the Sheriffâ€™s office.
McClaflin said Tuesday that the Barnes County Sheriffâ€™s Department has a 30-year-old woman in custody â€śfor entering numerous homes in the Barnes County, specifically Peak Road (County Road 27 North), Kathryn Road (County Road 21 south), Valley City and Sanborn.â€ť
McClaflin said the homes were unlocked, and â€śif confronted she usually made up a believable story of why she was in the residence.â€ť
The suspect usually wore a ball cap and wore her hair in a pony tail, and drove away in a white mini van.
The sheriff said the incidents took place in August and September of this year.
Items taken the sheriffâ€™s department is aware of include prescription drugs, loose change and cash.
