A man, a woman and a juvenile were charged in Fillmore County District Court on Thursday, August 7, with burglary following break-ins at the Das Wurst Haus and Coffee Street Wine Company in Lanesboro on August 5.

Law enforcement were notified the morning of August 5 by a witness who saw a suspect break into the Das Wurst Haus. Deputies from the Fillmore County Sheriffs Department responded.

Erica Lynn Peters, 22, of Rochester, and Jimmy Linthakanh, 16, of Illinois, presently residing in St. Charles, were apprehended. Arrested later was Seeamphay John Senthongphet, 20, of St. Charles.

Senthongphet made his first appearance in court on Thursday. Unconditional bail was set at $10,000 ($3,000 with conditions). No plea was entered and the defendant was granted a public defender. Peters will make her first appearance in court on August 11.

On Thursday, Linthakanh plead guilty to two counts of burglary and received a court ordered change of venue to Illinois where he will be sentenced as a juvenile.

Linthakanh, who was represented by public defender Fred Suhler, Jr., told Judge Robert Benson, that he participated in the robberies at the urging of Senthongphet, to whom he is related. Lithakanh said that Senthongphet threatened to make him walk home if he did not participate in the robberies.

Senthongphet and Peters both face two counts of felony burglary in the third degree. Each count carries a penalty of five years in prison and/or $10,000 fine.
