Adjudication for Nicole Manteuffel, 23, will be stayed for five years on the joint recommendation of the prosecution and defense.

Court records said the series of thefts took place between Jan. 4 and Feb. 22 of this year. Some of them allegedly involved a female accomplice. According to the complaint filed in court, merchandise was brought past the cash register into the salon at Walmart, where Manteuffel was an employee. The items were then bagged and removed from the store without being paid for.

The thefts came to light after an investigation by the store's security personnel and a review of surveillance videotape.

n A plea agreement was reached Monday for Bo Brian Anderson, 20, of Belgrade, who was charged in connection with the theft of tools and a rifle this past May from a rural Belgrade farm.

Anderson pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree burglary. Two other charges, first-degree burglary and felony theft, were dismissed in exchange.

Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 17.

n A Willmar man pleaded guilty Monday on a third-degree drug charge stemming from a CEE-VI Task Force undercover buy.

In exchange, two other cases were dismissed against Edward Braness, 34.

According to court records, Braness was arrested after an undercover drug buy on Dec. 22 netted 6.5 grams of a substance that later tested positive for methamphetamine. His criminal record includes a previous felony-level conviction for a controlled-substance crime.

A charge of theft, involving a separate incident last October in which Braness was accused of stealing $500 worth of high-end vodka from a Spicer liquor store, was dismissed. He was ordered to pay restitution, however.

In the second case that was dismissed, Braness had been charged with fifth-degree drug possession, storing methamphetamine in the presence of a child, drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was taken into custody in January following a report of drugs in the household where a 4-year-old child was living.
