According to Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office Captain John DeGeorge, the investigation into several area burglaries led to the execution of a search warrant and the arrest of a suspect at a rural Spring Valley address yesterday evening. 32 year old Michael Niemeyer of Rochester admitted to Investigators that he committed several burglaries in Fillmore and Mower Counties, including the burglary of St. John’s Lutheran School in Wykoff, the First Baptist Church in Spring Valley, and several downtown Spring Valley businesses.

Further investigation led Investigators from the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office, the Southeast Minnesota Narcotics and Gang Task Force, and the Mower/Austin tactical team to the execution of a search warrant at 10158 County Road 8 in rural Spring Valley. During the search Investigators recovered stolen property related to the area burglaries, as well as small amounts of suspected methamphetamine and multiple firearms. Components of a methamphetamine lab were also discovered on the property. 52 year old Mark Burrington was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, and may face charges related to manufacturing methamphetamine. Other individuals present at the scene were detained and later released. The results of the investigation will be forwarded to the Fillmore County Attorney for charges. Niemeyer remains in custody in the Mower County Jail.
