MINOT, N.D. — Darin Michael Korb, 29, is accused of burglarizing his brother's residence in Max, N.D., on Jan. 4.
Korb is charged with a Class C felony in district court in Minot.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, Korb's brother, Nicholas Korb, told authorities that several items were missing from his townhouse and garage, including a Polk Wireless Sound bar, a 60-inch flat screen television, a surround sound system, a subwoofer and a security camera system. Neighbors told authorities that they had seen Darin Korb near the residence on Jan. 3 and 4.
Nicholas Korb told authorities that he had video surveillance footage showing Darin Korb and another person removing items from the residence.
Authorities spoke with Darin Korb on Jan. 16, who told them he only took a saw that belonged to him. Darin Korb declined to answer further questions and said he wanted to talk with a lawyer after a deputy asked him about the surveillance video showing him taking other items from his brother's residence.
No complaint was filed against Darin Korb until Aug. 16 and the complaint was not served on him until Aug. 26, nearly nine months after the incident.
During his initial appearance in court on Monday, Darin Korb told Judge Gary Lee that he doesn't know what is going on and the property in question belonged to him.
Darin Korb applied and was approved for a court appointed attorney. Lee set a preliminary hearing date for Oct. 17. Darin Korb previously posted $250 bond and is free on bond.
Darin Korb was placed on three years of supervised probation in December 2017 for hitting Nicholas Korb over the head with a gun during a dispute at the radar base south of Minot in June 2017. Darin Korb had accused his brother of stealing two televisions from his home, went to confront his brother, and a physical fight ensued between the two men.
