Ten more felony charges have been filed in connection with the looting and unrest that took place in Minneapolis last week.
The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office announced the charges Monday. All were filed in Hennepin County District Court. The additional charges bring the number of charges filed in connection to the unrest to 26 felony charges.
Most of the defendants are charged with burglary, although one is charged with fifth-degree drug possession. They range in age from 22 to 50, and the majority of the defendants are from Minneapolis. The burglaries took place at businesses and restaurants including Foot Locker and Speedway.
The looting and unrest came after police released a video of a man appearing to shoot himself on Nicollet Mall last week.
