Eau Claire (WQOW) — A Minnesota man is charged with a felony, accused of stealing up to $15,000 worth of items from a gaming shop.
The criminal complaint stated an owner walked into D20 Gaming in Eau Claire the morning of November 9, 2015. While there, he found much of the store’s most valuable Magic The Gathering cards were missing. Owners say everything else – computers, money in the cash register – were all untouched.
Glass was broken in the door, but had been duct-taped by the time officers got there. Since the owners didn’t do it, they said it had to be the suspect who broke the door, then repaired it with duct tape.
In June 2016, a witness led authorities to Tyler Gehrmann of St. Cloud, Minnesota. Gehrmann had pleaded guilty to burglarizing Truckers Union just one month before.
Gehrmann’s DNA was collected in that case. Later, DNA from the front door of the D20 burglary matched him.
He’s charged with felony burglary. His first court appearance is January 9.
