Suspected burglar taken at gunpoint


WASECA — A Minneapolis man faces burglary charges after he was arrested at gunpoint by a Waseca police officer.

Carl Craig Larson, 47, was apprehended after residents came home about 12:30 p.m. Sunday and saw a broken garage door window and an unknown car in the driveway.

The residents called law enforcement and Waseca County deputy Anthony Martens entered the home, found Larson in a bedroom and arrested him without incident.

A large amount of jewelry, firearms and other items were recovered from the vehicle in the driveway. Those items are believed to be connected with a recent home burglary in Le Sueur.

In the Waseca residence a loaded .357 revolver was found near Larson.

Larson has served time in prison for  burglary and second-degree murder.

In addition to the Waseca burglary charge he faces a charge of possession of stolen property and felon in possession of a firearm.
