On the same date, a 2008 Acura car was reported stolen from Kingston Auto Sales in Dassel. The car was later recovered just south of Annandale.

On Wednesday, a 1999 Ford Econoline van, with “Larry’s Plumbing” marked on the side, was stolen from along 648th Avenue in Forest City. The van was full of plumbing equipment and tools and was taken from an address about 1 mile from the address where the snowmobile was stolen. The van was later recovered in St. Cloud.
