Daniel Thomas LaBarre, 34, of St Paul’s, entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors in April. In exchange for pleading guilty to seven counts of second-degree theft, prosecutors agreed to drop six other charges and not seek the departure of a grievous term from the statutory 10-year maximum sentence.

Ramsey County District Judge Kelly Charles ordered Labor to pay a yet-to-be-determined amount to pay compensation to her victims. They will get custody 294 days in advance.

According to the criminal complaint, the theft took place between April and September in an underground apartment building garage in Little Canada, Roseville, Shoreview, St. Paul and White Bear Lake.

An alleged accomplice, 39-year-old Jamie Marie Nash, has multiple theft charges pending in court and is being held in county jail without bail.


According to an October 25 criminal complaint, the pair’s method was to gain access to garages and stolen items from vehicles. Sometimes he would check the door handle. Sometimes they used to break windows. Several times they stole vehicles.

In one of the thefts, police say they swiped an Apple Watch, which the owner was able to track down to a camper behind a residence on Bayland Avenue in White Bear Lake. They were not at home, but on September 19, using a search warrant, police were able to confirm the identities of LaBarre and Nash, whose photos were captured on multiple video surveillance cameras.

On September 21, a man reported that his vehicle was vandalized while it was parked in Roseville. His iPhone and purse were stolen.

Police were informed that one of the man’s credit cards was used at Best Buy. Video from the store shows Nash and LeBarre making purchases totaling $1,599 using a stolen card and leaving it in a minivan.

‘Fantastic crime spree’

Charles asked LaBar what kind of work he wanted to do. He said he is a welder and wants to move to where his mother lives “for new scenes, new things”.

“I want different in my life,” he said. “I’ve been through the system several times, and I’m tired of seeing the same results every time.”
