Rochester Serial Burglar Pleads Guilty Again
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man described as a serial burglar is awaiting sentencing in his latest case.
61-year-old Maurice Golston has pleaded guilty to a burglary charge and is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
Golston was arrested in August in Rochester for a residential burglary that actually happened earlier in the day in the Pepin, Wisconsin area. A safe taken from the home was found in his vehicle. The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office had him under surveillance at the time. The owner of the safe told authorities it contained rare coins worth between $5,000- $10,000.
Golston has a history of burglaries dating back to 1993. His most recent conviction in Olmsted County was in 2014 and he was sentenced to 23 months in prison.
An Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office spokesman says Golston has been caught breaking into mostly rural homes.
