Cody Pederson allegedly took a child out for burglaries
Cody Pederson took his girlfriend's 10-year-old out to commit several burglaries, prosecutors allege.

Pederson, a 28-year-old from Alexandria, has been charged with 20 counts of burglary, criminal damage to property, child endangerment, and contributing to the delinquency of a child for allegedly committing five burglaries from February 17 to March 1.

The child didn't much like going out on the burglaries: The kid's mother says her child was misled by Pederson, who claimed they were going "for a walk" but broke into homes instead.

Pederson caused extensive damage at one of the homes he burglarized, about $5,500 worth, according to prosecutors.

Pederson broke into the first home by smashing a basement window.

He sprayed black paint all over the walls, ripped cabinet doors off their hinges, and smashed holes into the walls. Afterward, cops found two sets of footprints leading away from the home, one smaller than the other.

Pederson seems to have had a habit of damaging the properties he burglarized, according to the complaint. He dumped laundry detergent all over one basement floor and damaged a stereo speaker, coffee pot, eyeglasses, and a mattress at another location.

Police were called to another home on March 1. Officers found similar damage to the dishwasher's door at that place. Cops followed footprints out in the snow, according to the Alexandria Echo Press. "One of the prints appeared to belong to a child."

At another crime scene, police found a "small boy's shoe," which was confirmed to be the child's.

Pederson has been arrested and is being held at the Douglas County Jail. He has an omnibus hearing scheduled Thursday.

Why does City Pages only report crimes from outstate MN?  Why don't they report on the crimes closer to home, like the crimes that are committed in North Minneapolis everyday?

This mother is also an idiot who should have her child taken away for living with this guy. Go take a look at his criminal history. She's damn lucky her kid isn't one of the many who are being beat to death by new daddy when mommy is at work.

Seriously, why the f are women shacking up with guys that they don't f'ing know, not taking 30 seconds to find their criminal history, and being surprised when their kids end up hurt, raped, or dead?
