Ashley Rose Fuller, 18, from Granger, appeared before Judge Robert R. Benson in District Court Wednesday, September 8, 2010, on two separate charges. First of all, she was charged with two counts of theft and if found guilty on both counts, could face a maximum penalty of six years in prison, fines amounting to $13,000 or both. On August, 28, 2010, Officer Blaise Sass answered a call to the Little River General Store in Lanesboro in response to a report by the owner, Gene Mensing, regarding his suspicions of employee theft. Mensing reported that his till had come up short of over $1,000.00 in the last month or so. He began suspecting an employee when money was missing during this person's shift. His suspicions were confirmed after viewing a video surveillance tape showing the defendant, Ashley Rose Fuller, taking money from the till and putting it in her pocket. Holly and Jamie Knutson, owners of R&M Amish Tours, located in the same building as Little River General Store, also reported missing about $70 from their till. After viewing more security footage, it was confirmed that the defendant was also seen taking money from their till. On September 2 Officer Sass interviewed the defendant and read her the Miranda statement of rights before proceeding. During the interview Fuller admitted to taking money from both businesses and was then taken into custody for theft. While being transported to the Fillmore County Jail, Officer Sass discovered Fuller also had marijuana paraphernalia in her possession.

In a separate charge, Fuller also appeared before Judge Benson facing two charges of burglary in the second and third degree. If found guilty on these two counts, she could face a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison, fines amounting to $30,000 or both. On August 31, 2010, Preston Chief of Police Matt Schultz was dispatched to the Little River General Store in Lanesboro in response to a burglary. Owner Gene Mensink met Schultz and showed him where the padlock had been pried off the back door of his business. Schultz contacted Officer Sass to assist in the investigation, and while observing the security tape, both observed a white male with the lower part of his face masked entering the building. Officer Sass recognized the individual as Dalton Volkman, a known associate with Ashley Fuller who was being investigated by him for employee theft. Volkman later implicated Fuller of aiding and abetting in the burglary by telling authorities that she told him .....
