Barnes County, ND (WDAY TV) - Two of four people charged in a Barnes County burglary ring have changed their pleas to guilty.

32-year-old Broc Buytaert and 31-year-old Betsy Runkle, both of Rochester, are pleading guilty to burglary and property theft.

Buytaert changed his plea this morning just before his trial was set to start.

Runkle changed her plea last week and was sentenced to 60 days of house arrest, with two days credit for time served.

Buytaert and Runkle, along with 37-year-old Steve Hovland of Valley City and 25-year-old April Kapaun of Wheatland, were accused of breaking into several farmsteads and businesses last year.
