Judge Jennifer Fischer set bail at $40,000. Ellingson’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 28.
The charges stem from a burglary and theft reported June 23 at a house in the 300 block of Litchfield Avenue Southeast. The resident told Willmar police that $2,500 in cash was stolen while he was at work.
Through interviews, police were led to Ellingson as a suspect. A witness who reported seeing a vehicle at the scene later positively identified him, according to court documents.
