  Three men are in the Polk County jail at Crookston, following a dozen home and car burglaries over the past month, and 2 home invasions on Wednesday.

  The 3 suspects charged with 1st degree burglary are:

39-year old Eli Bogonovich of Grand Forks, 21-year old Tomas Flores III of East Grand Forks and 24-year old David Seddon of Crookston.

  The first 9-1-1 call came in at 4:30 Wednesday morning. The home owner reported an intruder at 129 Mill Street, just west of downtown Crookston.

  The intruder was gone when police arrived, but police received another call at 6:43 a.m. of a masked intruder at this home at 222 East 7th Street on the north side of downtown. But, again, the suspect was already gone when police arrived.

  However, within a few minutes, police spotted the suspect, Eli Bogonovich walking down a sidewalk near that home. Police say he was arrested without incident and found to be carrying a gun. Police also say, the homeowners were home at the time their houses were invaded and no one was inured.

Detective Aaron Pry, Crookston Police: "Between the animals and the homeowners, we believe that spooked him off."

Reporter: "He never threatened anyone with a gun or hurt anyone?"

Pry: "No, he did not."

  The arrest of Bogonovich, quickly lead to a probationary search of a nearby home at 336 North Central Avenue, where Tomas Flores was arrested.

  Then, the Polk County Sheriff's Department got in on the action, after responding to a garage and car burglary in the nearby town of Gentilly.  David Seddon was arrested.

  Authorities are still counting up the total value of all the stolen merchandise that's been recovered.

Detective Aaron Pry: "Money, credit cards, things like that. Anything of value basically. Electronics, jewelry, things like that."

  Detective Pry says he's confident with these 3 suspects behind bars, the rash of burglaries will stop.

  Authorities are reminding everyone to keep their cars, homes and property locked to prevent yourself from becoming a victim.
