On October 3 we asked if you know the whereabouts of the Property Crimes Person of the Week and asked that you share any information you had with the Duluth Police Department.  It’s a good feeling to know that information you’ve shared with the police may have helped apprehend a suspect. In this case, it did!


They were looking for Brandon Robert Bender, a 22 year old white male with blue eyes and blonde hair.

Brandon has felony warrants for his arrest for violation of probation stemming from theft and possession of controlled substance cases.


On Friday, October 10th at 9:33 AM Duluth Police received information that Bender was at a room at the Motel 6, 200 South 27th Avenue West. He was located there an arrested without incident.

He was then transported to the Saint Louis County Jail for the warrants. Officers located methamphetamine, suboxone and marijuana on Bender. Additional charges are being added for 2 counts of 5th Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance and 2 counts of Introducing Contraband to the Jail.
