Rosemount Teen Charged

A Rosemount teen has been charged in a fire to a health and nutrition store on University Avenue in Saint Paul, during the aftermath of rioting following the death of George Floyd. According to published reports, McKenzy Dunn, 19, faces one count of conspiracy to commit arson. Federal investigators said they obtained video surveillance footage from inside the store showing the night of the arson. Following a public request for tips and identifying information, investigators were able to identify Dunn, and accomplices Samuel Frey, 19, of Brooklyn Park, and Bailey Baldus, 19, of Ramsey, in the surveillance video footage, according to the criminal complaint. Frey can be seen pouring flammable hand sanitizer onto a shelving unit and lighting it on fire, authorities said. According to investigators, Dunn can be seen standing near the shelving unit holding a bottle of flammable hand sanitizer. Dunn made her initial court appearance in St. Paul on Wednesday.
