Friday evening, police were dispatched back to Wal-Mart after receiving a report that the male suspect… later identified as 24-year-old Andrew Raygor of Storm Lake… was back in the store attempting to pay for merchandise he allegedly admitted to stealing from the store earlier in the day.

Early Saturday morning police searched Raygor’s residence at 322 West Eighth Street, where they seized items stolen from the burglarized vehicle. Raygor was charged with burglary to a vehicle, an aggravated misdemeanor… and fifth-degree theft, a simple misdemeanor. He was jailed on a two-thousand dollar bond.

An adult female was also questioned in the connection with the investigation, but was later released.
