Chappuis Jewelers became the latest Faribault store to have its door pried open and display cases smashed by roving thieves targeting locally-owned jewelery stores throughout the state.

At 9:45 p.m. Tuesday three black males entered through the front door and exited through the back after smashing cases and grabbing valuables, according to Faribault Police Chief Don Gudmundson.

    That's sort of how they caught the regional bank robber in St. Peter last January. It wasn't a speed trap so much as a cop making an educated guess about the suspect's route to the cities. Good guess. Much as I despise the tactic, it worked. Now that they have a couple of vehicle descriptions and an idea of where these guys are based, the odds of catching them just went up considerably.
    I'm wondering what kind of glass they had in the showcases that were broken into. Most security cases require a fifteen minute minimum rating. The Douglas "video" is just a couple of stills stripped from the video so they do not show very much detail.

    I think Owatonna could be the next spot. I see the OPD out on the interstate setting up speed traps when they could patroling the city and leave the interstate to the deputies and troopers.
