ROCHESTER, Minn. – Rochester police arrested a Grand Meadow man on Sunday after he allegedly stole a pickup and tried breaking into another car.
It started around 7 a.m. when a Taco John’s employee reported to police that a suspicious man entered a business that wasn’t open yet. When he came back out, the caller said the man tried breaking into her car.
It was then that 26-year-old Nathan Koball reportedly took off. During that time, another caller said they saw a suspicious person lurking behind a house on 16th St. NW.
He is also believed to have stolen a green Chevy pickup, which police later found abandoned. At one point, a caller said the suspect jumped a fence in the backyard and left behind a car charger and USB cord he allegedly stole.
Authorities were eventually able to find and arrest him. He faces several charges, including first-degree burglary and motor vehicle theft.
