Daniel Boothe charged with burglarizing empty house

Daniel Boothe, 33, is accused of burglarizing a vacant house at 5001 13th Street NE in Minot that was owned by Prairie Federal Credit Union in June.

He is charged in district court in Minot with Class C felony burglary.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed with the court, a Ward County deputy found empty alcoholic beverage containers and tape with a possible fingerprint in the home. A cleaner who had cleaned the house in preparation for a showing told law enforcement that there had been no beverage containers left in the house after she was done cleaning. A fingerprint was recovered from the tape and it and the alcohol containers were sent off to the North Dakota State Crime Lab for DNA analysis. Both the DNA recovered from the alcoholic beverage container and the fingerprint on the tape came back as a match to Boothe.

Boothe made an initial appearance in court on Thursday before Judge Stacy Louser. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Jan. 7.
