Trevino will be sentenced April 30. He and Allison Ann Roschild, 18, of Renville, were both charged with burglary for robbing Setterberg Jewelry. The local job was the last in a string of three jewelry store burglaries Nov. 5 in Granite Falls, Sacred Heart and Willmar.

Roschild was sentenced Friday to one year and one day in prison, which was stayed, five years of probation, 153 days in jail and a $300 fine on a felony burglary charge for robbing Korthuis Jewelry in downtown Granite Falls.

As part of her sentence handed down in Yellow Medicine County District Court, Roschild was ordered to pay $13,456.65 in restitution, ordered not to enter either of the Korthuis stores in Granite Falls and Montevideo, ordered not to use drugs or alcohol and she must follow the recommendations of a chemical use assessment.

Roschild was also sentenced Feb. 17 to five years of probation, 95 days in jail and 100 hours of community service in Renville County District Court for the Sacred Heart incident. She has also been charged with a felony for third-degree burglary and a gross misdemeanor for property damage in the Kandiyohi County case, but has not appeared on those charges.

Trevino was sentenced Jan. 24 to five years of probation, 106 days in jail and $600 in fines in the Yellow Medicine and Renville County cases against him. He was also ordered to pay restitution in both cases.

The Kandiyohi County complaints allege that the pair, along with several others, used a rock to smash the windows and display cases at Setterberg Jewelry in downtown Willmar. Responding police officers found the front door and display cases smashed and approximately $2,500 in rings and chains missing. The damage estimate was $632.18.

The Yellow Medicine County charges were filed after the early morning burglaries began at Korthuis Jewelry in downtown Granite Falls. An alarm summoned local police, who found the front door and display cases smashed with a large rock and several pieces of jewelry missing. Similarly, a rock was thrown through a window and used to damage display cases at Probst Jewelry in Sacred Heart, according to the Renville County complaint. Several silver jewelry items were missing and there was more than $1,200 in damage to the store and display cases.

Along with Roschild and Trevino, the complaints list three juveniles and an 18-year-old as people involved the case. Two of the juveniles, ages 14 and 13, were detained at Prairie Lake Youth Programs in Willmar. Criminal charges against juveniles under the age of 16 are not public record.

One of the juveniles apparently gave stolen diamond rings to female friends. One of the parents recognized the value of the jewelry and contacted law enforcement. The boy was interviewed and allegedly admitted to his role in the burglaries and identified others involved in the incidents.
