Local News

A 21-year-old Glenville man arrested following a high-speed chase in Albert Lea is a suspect in two Faribault County burglaries.

Chief Deputy Scott Adams says the sheriff’s department currently is investigating the burglaries of two rural residences that occurred over the Labor Day weekend.

“A large amount of cash and some guns were taken,” he says. “We got a search warrant and recovered some of the items Wednesday night.”

Adams says one of the burglaries occurred in Pilot Grove Township and the other was north of Huntley.

According to the Albert Lea Police Department, an officer a patrol noticed a white 2006 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Levi Troy Dahl that may have been used in the burglaries.

“We had good video footage of the car and blanketed law enforcement agencies in southern Minnesota,” says Adams.

The vehicle reportedly was traveling slowly and did not stop after the officer activated his emergency lights.

Dahl was apprehended after losing control of his car and crashing head-on into a parked vehicle. Speeds reportedly reached 60 mph during the chase.

Adams says Dahl most likely will be charged with first-degree burglary and more arrests could be made.

In Freeborn County, Dahl is being charged with felony fleeing a peace officer, criminal vehicular operation, driving while intoxicated and driving after suspension.
