Minneapolis Man Charged With String of West Metro Burglaries

Minnetonka police believe the suspect may be responsible for other burglaries throughout the western suburbs.

A Minneapolis man was charged with second degree burglary in connection with a Long Lake burglary that was reported on January 26. Three burglaries on Wolf Point Trail in Long Lake that date were the subject of a Crime Alert issued by Wayzata PD.

Although only charged with one of the burglaries at this time, it is believed that all three Wolf Pointe Trail burglaries are connected, as well as burglaries in several other western suburbs.

On March 14, Minnetonka Police responded to a residential burglar alarm. The suspect in that attempted burglary was apprehended a short time later and arrested. Details investigators received from that arrest combined with information from Wayzata’s investigation led to the execution of two search warrants in North Minneapolis.

Property stolen from one of the Wolf Pointe burglaries as well as property from other jurisdiction’s burglaries was recovered. 

The boots allegedly used during the crimes were also seized. Mark Tracy Seaborn, 45, has multiple convictions for burglary and is currently on parole for a burglary conviction. Because of his lengthy criminal history, bail in this case was set at $500,000.

The successful outcome of this case is the result of patrol work by the Minnetonka Police Department and the close working relationship between investigators from Wayzata, Minnetonka, and other neighboring jurisdictions.
