Afton man unable to negotiate his way out of burglary charge
Washington County prosecutors apparently disagreed with an Afton man who thought mutual apologies ought to spare him from a burglary charge.
Andrew Joachim, 20, is accused of entering a Lake Elmo garage Aug. 7 and attempting to steal seven snowboards. The alleged victim confronted Joachim during the incident causing him to flee the scene, according to a criminal complaint.
He was arrested at his home and taken to Washington County jail.
