Burglar Caught In Ruthville | VideoJenny Castro | 8/7/2012
Authorities arrived at the Ruthville Bar shortly after the alarm activated. The front door glass window was broken and while checking the building, Bott ran outside and into a field across the highway.
A K-9 unit was requested and the dog located Bott laying about 100 yards into the wheat field. The Sheriff`s Department says they`re still looking for a possible accomplice.
"There was a pickup truck seen in the area and information was gathered subsequently that led us to believe that that subject was a co-conspirator in this or a lookout for the accused burglar and the Ward County Sheriff`s department currently holds a warrant for that individual," said Captain Robert Barnard.
Oscar Monroe Keller Junior, 25, of Minot is believed to be involved with the burglary and has a warrant for his arrest.
Bott`s second burglary charge is from a July burglary in Sawyer. After interviewing Bott, the Sheriff`s Department learned that he was also tied to this incident.
If you have any information about the other suspect, Oscar Keller, please contact the Ward County Sheriff`s department at 701-857-6500.
