Three Duluth residents were charged this week in connection with vehicle break-ins in Superior, and two of them were arrested in Duluth on suspicion of burglary on Tuesday.

Linze Marie Crandall, 22; Sean Patrick Saylor Jr., 19; and Heather Lynn Goodreau, 24; are scheduled to appear in Douglas County Circuit Court on Wednesday, according to Superior Deputy Police Chief Nicholas Alexander. They're accused of breaking into vehicles at Arrowhead Pier, Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Superior and removing valuables, including credit cards. The credit cards were used to purchase electronic items that it is believed were traded for narcotics.

In addition, Duluth police arrested Saylor and Goodreau on Tuesday after officers responded to the 8800 block of Grand Avenue on a burglary in progress call around 10:20 a.m. A caller saw a male and female wade through waist-deep snow and enter a neighbor's house through a back door. The suspects were then seen leaving the house and heading into a wooded area near 90th Avenue West and Swenson Avenue.

Offices found Saylor and Goodreau on Clyde Avenue. The officers found items stolen from the house along the path taken by the pair.

All three are being held at the St. Louis County Jail on charges of party to a crime of criminal damage to property, theft, and financial card crimes, according to the Superior Police Department. Saylor and Goodreau are facing Minnesota charges for third-degree burglary.

A search of public court records for Crandall found 14 cases in Minnesota, including three that are still open. In September she was charged with five crimes in St. Louis County, including two felony counts of fraud and one felony count of identity theft.

Saylor's court record shows 10 cases in Minnesota. In November, he was convicted on a felony drug charge in Duluth, and was sentenced in December to 15 months in prison. The sentence was stayed, however, and he was placed on three years of probation.

Goodreau's court record shows seven cases in Minnesota. On Jan. 24 a warrant for her arrest as issued in Duluth for a 2012 criminal damage to property case.

Crandall and Goodreau have also had traffic violations or shoplifting charges in Wisconsin.

Authorities remind people to protect their belongings by not keeping valuable items in their vehicles. If valuable items must be left in a vehicle, they should be hidden.
