The Redwood Falls Police Department was called to the Liquor Lodge Wednesday evening for a report of a theft. The suspect was arrested later in Sibley County.

A Minneapolis man has been arrested for theft at the Liquor Lodge in Redwood Falls Wednesday evening, among other area charges.

On Wednesday, August 26, at about 7 p.m., the Redwood Falls Police Department was called to the Liquor Lodge on a report of a possible theft. Staff at the Liquor Lodge reported an unknown male had entered the business office and took an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency. 

Shortly after responding to this call, Redwood County Dispatch told the Redwood Falls police officers a theft had recently happened in the Marshall, where an undisclosed amount of currency was taken from a Casey’s General Store. Follow-up investigation confirmed the description of the suspect matched for both thefts. The Marshall Police Department reported the identity of the suspect was believed to be Charles Love, age 52, from Minneapolis. 

This information was sent out to regional law enforcement agencies. At about 7:23 p.m. a Sibley County Sheriff’s Department Deputy conducted a traffic stop on a 2005 Chevy Blazer driving 103 miles per hour in a 60 mile per hour zone. The Sibley County deputy who made contact with the driver determined it was Charles Love. A subsequent search located a large sum of currency in Love’s possession.

Charles Love was arrested, and is currently in custody in the Redwood County Jail pending formal charges.
