A jury has found a St. Paul man guilty of burglarizing a Waconia T-Mobile store in 2018.
The Carver County Attorney’s Office says 31-year-old Ramon Blakey was found guilty of felony theft and second-degree burglary on Monday.
The release from the attorney’s office said in the early morning hours of Oct. 21, 2018, Blakey and an associate bored through a wall shared with a former pizzeria into the T-Mobile room, immediately disabling the security system. They then tore out a security camera and used a power saw to cut into a large safe, which contained more than $25,000 worth of cellphones. They also cut into a drop safe containing several thousands of dollars, but were unsuccessful in fully breaching it and removed it instead, putting it into a getaway car with the cellphones.
His sentencing date is set for July 12.
