Investigators are following up on leads and would also like to ask residents in those neighborhoods with video security systems to check their cameras for any suspicious activity, persons, or vehicles and share what they find with the Police Department.
The third incident was a case of animal cruelty occurring in the area of Jefferson Trailer Court in SE Minot at approximately noon on Sunday, November 17.
