On Tuesday, May 2, 2023, the Price County Sheriff's Office received three burglary complaints, all based in the Township of Worcester.

It was believed the three burglaries were conducted by the same individual(s), because of the evidence at the scenes and the proximity to each other.

Items stolen were ATVs, chainsaws, gas cans, and water heaters, among other items.

On May 5, 2023, while serving a drug warrant at a residence in the Township of Worcester, officers located several items matching the descriptions of the stolen property.  One man was arrested for an outstanding felony warrant.
