Man Out on Bail Facing Multiple Charges of Burlgary, Strikes Again

Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- 45-year-old Michael Peters of Duluth was out on bail awaiting sentencing of eight burglaries, when he struck again on the 1000 block of Berwick Court, in which he was charged with 2nd Degree Burglary Tuesday.

On April 11, Duluth Police received a call from someone who was watching the house for the resident who was out of town and noticed the window was broken and the side door was open.

A box of silverware valued at over $6,000 was missing from the home.

Duluth Police Crime Scene investigators located a shoe print with a distinct pattern inside the home and learned that the burglary was similar to eight burglaries Peters has pled guilty to on January 25, 2012.

Peters was out on bail awaiting sentencing for the crimes at the time of the Berwick Court burglary.

Peters gained information on the whereabouts of residential owners of his previous burglaries through his employment as a newspaper delivery man on his route.

Peter confessed to stealing jewelry and silverware and did not ransack the homes.

On April 12, the resident of the Berwick Court home contacted investigators and told them one of the few people that knew she wasn't going to be home was the Custom Cab driver, Peters, who transported her to the airport the day she left town.

On April 13, investigators executed a search warrant on Peter's residence in the 200 block of West Seventh Street, in which they located Peters who was wearing a pair of tennis shoes that matched the shoe print left inside the home on Berwick Court.

Peters remains in custody at the Saint Louis County Jail with a bail set at $100,000.
