Hastings police seek public's help in finding man who attempted to break in to creamery

Hastings police are seeking the man pictured here for questioning after an attempted break-in at the Hastings Co-op Creamery in the early morning hours of Sunday, March 18.

Just a short while later, next door, someone threw a rock through a window at the Leduc Historic Estate and entered the building. Nothing was stolen. The only thing disturbed as a picture frame, which the thief discarded as he left the mansion.

It's not certain at this point that the man in the photo did the damage at the Leduc Estate, but police would like to talk with him to find out.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the Hastings Police Department at 651-480-2300.
