Benjamin Rosa, Blue Earth County Jail

The suspect in a burglary and an assault last week in Blue Earth County has been arrested for a DWI in Faribault County. Benjamin John Rosa, 41, was detained early Monday morning for DWI.

The Faribault County Sheriff’s office received a report of a suspicious person at a rural Blue Earth address at 5:45 a.m. Monday. Deputies found a pickup hooked to a camper in a drainage ditch. Rosa, the driver, was located west of the property following a search.

Investigators say Rosa drove through a property on 105th St and continued driving north through a cornfield.  His truck came to a rest at a drainage ditch in the field. Police say Rosa sustained minor injuries from walking through the standing corn in the field.

Rosa was arrested in Blue Earth County last week after he allegedly burglarized a home, assaulted a man, and stole a pickup.  He posted $200,000 bond on Friday and was released with no conditions.
