HERMANTOWN, MN — Four suspects in the failed burglary attempt of a Hermantown convenience store last week have been charged in court.

Samuel David Kent, 19, and Devin Hakeem Jones, 18, made their first court appearances in St. Louis County Court Monday.

Both teens are facing three felony counts, including aiding and abetting burglary, and possession of burglary tools.

Two other juveniles have also been charged in relation to the case.

According to court records, the suspects’ early-morning attempted burglary of tobacco products at the Adolph Store on November 30th was thwarted by store owner Shane Stokke.

Upon their arrest, police say Kent admitted to serving as a lookout during the burglary attempt.

Officers also found several tools, including a hatchet, chisels, pry bars, and a ski mask in the suspect vehicle.
Kent and Jones are being held on $5,000 bail.

Their next court appearances are set for December 18th.

Authorities have not yet said whether this case, and a separate burglary of flavored tobacco from the Korner Store in Hermantown, are connected.
