Icehouse break-ins prompt warning

Email News Alerts

At least half a dozen Hubbard County icehouses have been broken into so far, and more may have gone unreported.

"They take fishing tackle, poles, spears, augers and even stoves and propane tanks," said Hubbard County Sheriff Frank Homer.


Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon issued a public warning last week after a rash of break-ins in his county were reported following the weekend ice storm.
