BROOKINGS – Items worth more than $2,000 were stolen from a storage unit south of Brookings, according to the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.
The burglary at Dakota Mini Storage, 3500 Main Ave. S., was reported at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday and happened sometime between Oct. 29 and Nov. 10, Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring said.
