A pair of men allegedly tried to break into a recently deceased man's home, only to be intercepted by the Goodhue County Sheriff's deputies who were waiting for them.
Mark Donald Greseth, 23, Zumbrota, and Jason Robert Scinto, 32, Byron, were arrested at a Wanamingo residence on Nov. 4, trying to break into a garage by prying and hitting the door to gain access, authorities said.
The residence belonged to Gregory Greseth, who recently died, and is the brother of Mark Greseth.
When confronted, Greseth said that he was doing nothing wrong and the home belonged to his brother, but officers had been tipped off to the pairs' alleged plan by another person.
When deputies approached the two men, a methamphetamine "bubble" was found on Scinto.
Scinto told deputies he felt it was "wrong" to break into the building, but trusted Greseth who said it was fine to do so, the criminal complaint states.
The complaint did not say what the two men were allegedly attempting to steal.
Greseth was charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, possession of burglary or theft tools, and fourth-degree intentional damage to property.
Scinto also received the same charges as Greseth, but also charges for fifth-degree drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
