One of the suspects in the Deli Plus burglary from last week has been identified and is being held at the Sherburne County jail.
Nicholas Joseph Ammesmaki of Superior, WI is being held and charged with second degree burglary, obstruction of justice, first degree criminal damage to property and possession of burglary tools.
The other suspect, a 16-year-old girl from Becker, has not been identified and is currently being held at the Lino Lakes juvenile facility until her arraignment.
The burglary, which occurred at 12:50 a.m. last Friday, took place just before Becker Police Sgt. Jason Lawson came upon the scene. Lawson observed a girl and man walking away from the store with tobacco products in their arms. The store had been closed, which drew officer Lawson’s suspicions.
Lawson set out to trail the suspects when they bolted from the scene. Lawson was able to apprehend the 16-year-old girl, but at the time, the 19-year-old male had eluded him.
After questioning the girl and further investigating, Lawson - now assisted by the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Dept. and Big Lake Police - discovered the Deli Plus store had been broken into and items stolen.
The girls faces similar charges as Ammesmaki including second degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, possession of stolen property, criminal damage to property and fleeing police on foot.
Ammesmaki, born 2/22/1994, was described as an Indian man of 19 years age with black hair. When booked, he weighed 220 lbs and stood 6' 6" tall.
