Clearwater Deputies responded to a residential burglary early Saturday morning. Witnesses described a Toyota Tundra pickup leaving the scene which matched the description of a vehicle used in several burglaries in Beltrami and Cass Counties. Mahnomen County deputies stopped the vehicle and arrested JOSHUA JAMES MARTIN, 29, Walker, JERMEY JAY MARTIN, 25, Walker, JASMINE LEE BELLCOURT, 19, Cass lake . The suspects were found with items taken from the Clearwater burglary in their vehicle including a gun.

Beltrami Investigators and Cass County deputies went to the suspect's residence near Walker, MN with a search warrant and recovered stolen items from several Beltrami County, Cass County and Mahnomen Counties Burglaries. Several guns, pick-ups full of stolen property, a stolen trailer and approximately one ounce of methamphetamine were seized from the suspect's house. The suspects are currently in custody in Clearwater County on Burglary charges while the cases are being reviewed by the county attorneys of Beltrami, Cass and Mahnomen Counties.

Victims of these burglaries are being contacted today by investigators to meet with investigators at the law enforcement center and recover their stolen property .

The success of this investigation is due to the great teamwork exhibited by Clearwater, Mahnomen, Cass and Beltrami County Sheriff's Offices.
