CARLTON, Minn. (WCCO) — The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office is reminding residents that law enforcement across the county are alert and are being vigilant to keep potential thieves and looters away from the flood zones.

“It’s not just debris out there, it’s people’s property and there are things that mean a lot to people,” said Bryce Bogenholm, Moose Lake Police Chief.

On Monday, Moose Lake Police arrested two men on public nuisance charges after they were seen going through residents’ property. Another man was cited for disorderly conduct.

Last Wednesday’s downpour resulted in historic flooding in Minnesota’s Northland.

Carlton County workers are going door-to-door to inspect homes. The county has also opened a volunteer and donation center in Cloquet.

People can call 218-384-1112 if they want to help or if they need help. The center will answer calls daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. You can drop off donations there, too.
