A Bloomington man arrested and charged last year in connection with an apartment burglary in Eagan is at it again, according to Eagan police.
Andrew James Remer, 26, was charged with one felony count of possession of burglary or theft tools and one felony count of third-degree burglary after he was arrested last week during an attempted break-in at a storage facility in Eagan.
On Nov. 11, police responded to Simply Self Storage after the owner of a storage unit came to check on his belongings and reportedly found a man trying to break in to the unit.
Officers drove to the victim's stall and allegedly observed Remer inside the unit. Police approached Remer and asked him if it was his storage unit, at which point Remer allegedly told the officers that a friend named "Mark Peterson" owned the unit.
Officers arrested Remer, who had an outstanding warrant from Hennepin County. Police also found lock cutters, a "slim jim", cut locks and new locks located in the back of Remer's vehicle.
The victim told police that locks on two of his units had been removed and replaced.
Remer has a lengthy criminal history that includes convictions for fifth-degree possession of drugs and DWI charges. The Bloomington man was also convicted of first-degree burglary in February for a December 2011 burglary that occurred at an Eagan apartment complex.
