CHARLES CITY — Charles City authorities have filed additional charges against Randy Patrie following an investigation by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation into a series of residential and commercial burglaries.
The additional charges against Patrie, 31, Charles City, include two counts of unauthorized possession of an offensive weapon, a Class D felony; and second-degree burglary, a Class C felony, according to a press release from the Charles City Police Department. Patrie was arrested Tuesday night and taken to the Floyd County Jail.
Patrie was initially charged on July 4 with third-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, two counts of possession of stolen property, possession of a firearm as a felon and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The investigation began with the report of a home burglary on July 4.
During the execution of a search warrant, law enforcement seized items believed to be stolen property, including firearms, taken from Gilbert’s Sale Yard in Floyd on May 2.
Patrie gained notoriety in North Iowa for his involvement in the case of Evelyn Miller, 5, a Floyd youngster whose body was found in the Cedar River following a five-day search in 2005.
Patrie was one of two men to visit the Floyd apartment of Casey Frederiksen and Noel Miller in the early morning hours of July 1, 2005. Miller’s daughter, Evelyn, was missing when Miller arrived home from work at an area nursing home.
Patrie and Danny Slick told law enforcement officials they had seen Evelyn at about 2 a.m. on the morning of her disappearance.
They said they had visited the apartment and Evelyn had answered the door when they arrived. They said she was fine when they left.
Frederiksen, 33, is scheduled to stand trial on Oct. 28 in Webster City on charges of first-degree murder and first-degree sexual abuse in Evelyn Miller’s death.
