BISMARCK, N.D. — A Bismarck man is accused of breaking into an apartment, taking a shower and leaving some items behind, including a detective's business card.
Stacey Fast Horse was charged Wednesday with burglary, theft of property and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle, all Class C felonies.
Bismarck Police Detective Jeremy Seeklander wrote in an affidavit that patrol officers responded to a burglary at 1823 Mapleton at 12:34 p.m. Tuesday. The description of the alleged burglar matched Fast Horse, whom another detective had encountered the night before. Officers found items belonging to Fast Horse in the apartment, including a police detective's business card. Items in the apartment had been moved.
Also found in the apartment were keys to a vehicle that had been stolen from Mandan, Seeklander’s affidavit said. The vehicle, which had been spray painted red and purple, was located outside the apartment. Another woman reported the same man who had been in that vehicle attempted to steal her vehicle and damaged the ignition with a knife, Seeklander wrote.
Officers located Fast Horse, who admitted to being in the apartment and taking a shower there. He said he was there to visit a friend, but no one with the friend's name lives in the apartment, Seeklander wrote. The affidavit also said some items Fast Horse was carrying included the apartment tenant’s name.
