Arden Hills

Feeder thievery

A resident called police from the 1700 block of Gramsie Road Dec. 1 to report that someone had come into their yard overnight and tampered with a bird feeder and stolen bird feed.



A 46-year-old man called police Dec. 4 to report credit card fraud in an unknown amount — he was given the police case number to give to his credit card company.


Falcon Heights


Police were called to the 1400 block of Larpenteur Avenue on reports from neighbors of yelling outside Nov. 20. Officers found an intoxicated 24-year-old man on the ground. He registered a .38 blood alcohol concentration — more than four times the legal limit had he been driving — and medics came to take him “for treatment,” as stated in the police report.


Grinch move?

A 49-year-old man told police Nov. 25 someone had stolen two lawn oranaments from outside his home in the 1500 block of Snelling Avenue, a loss of $60.


No insurance

A 25-year-old woman stopped at Larpenteur Avenue and Pascal Street Nov. 24 was arrested for gross misdemeanor no proof of insurance and driving with a revoked license. Insurance is an issue for the woman — she has three previous insurance convictions over the past 10 years — and she was promised that she’d be formally charged for her violations at a later date.


Parking issues

Officers issued a ticket to a driver who’d parked his car in a handicap spot in the 1500 block of Larpenteur Avenue Nov. 25 despite not having handicap plates or a tag, and issued a warning to a passenger in the car for possession of a small amount of marijuana.



Domestic assault report

A father called police Nov. 23 to report a physical altercation between his daughter and son-in-law. Officers arrived and nobody seemed to have been injured; the woman said she did not wish to press charges and she and her child left the residence for the night.


Car issues

Police impounded an apparently abandoned car Nov. 21; it’d been parked at Larpenteur Avenue and Eustis Street. A subsequent check revealed the vehicle had been stolen out of Minneapolis, so Minneapolis PD was given a call.


Little Canada

Phone tracker

A Little Canada father tracked his daughter’s stolen cell phone to a home in St. Paul Dec. 5 and then called deputies to meet him at the scene. They arrived and retrieved the phone from a teenager and returned it to the man. The phone had been stolen earlier that day; the man decided not to press charges.


Stolen catalytic converter

A man reported Dec. 5 the theft of the catalytic converter from his van as it was parked in the 300 block of Little Canada Road.


Mounds View

Drunk and disorderly

Officers headed to the 2500 block of Mounds View Boulevard around 6 p.m. Dec. 2 on a report of a man who was drunk and disorderly. They arrived there and arrested a 35-year-old Columbia Heights man for fleeing police and obstruction of the legal process, after a brief foot chase. He was taken to Unity Hospital in Fridley for evaluation.


Garbage fire

First police officers, then the fire department responded to a report of a fire in the 2100 block of Dickens Lane Dec. 3. Officers showed up and found an unattended pile of household items that were burning, with no water source nearby, so they called in the firefighters. A 37-year-old man was cited for disturbing the peace for the illegal fire.


Package theft

A person who lives in the 7600 block of Spring Lake Road reported Dec. 1 the theft of a package from their front door.


Road ragers

A person called police Nov. 27 to report a road rage incident that happened in the area of County Road H and Mounds View Boulevard. The caller said someone in another car threw a bottle at their car — it’s unclear what happened before the toss.

Officers responded to the intersection of Old Highway 8 and Mustang Drive Nov. 28 on a report of a two-vehicle crash. One of the drivers, a 38-year-old Coon Rapids man, was cited for careless driving — an unsafe change of course — which happened because of a road rage incident.


New Brighton


A woman told police Nov. 28 that sometime earlier that day someone had broken into her home in the 2300 block of Brittany Court. The woman returned home and parked in her garage, noticing the door to her place was open. She called police to come see if anyone was still inside — no one was, but the place had been rummaged through. The woman confirmed that multiple items had been stolen.


Lock the car

A 33-year-old woman told police Dec. 2 someone had gotten into her unlocked car as it was parked in the 100 block of 16th Avenue NW and stolen $70 worth of stuff, including sunglasses, workout pants, a Christmas sweater with Santa Claus on it and a “Mortal Kombat” PS4 video game.


Halfway crook

The driver of a vehicle with Michigan license plates filled up with gas and came into the Circle K convenience store in the 200 block of County Road E2 and tried to pay Dec. 1, but the person’s credit card was declined so they got in the car and drove off. The gas station is out $29.43 worth of gas.



A 60-year-old man told police Dec. 5 someone had stolen a door off his Bobcat land mover as it was parked in the 2600 block of Rice Creek Road — there was no other damage or anything else missing from the vehicle. The door is an $1,800 loss.

A 29-year-old man told police someone stole a number of tools from his truck as it was parked in the 700 block of 10th Street NW sometime overnight into Dec. 1. The truck had been locked and wasn’t damaged.



Cat walk

Someone who lives in the 1600 block of Terrace Drive called the police Dec. 4 to report a cat had been getting into their garage and walking on a vehicle.



A 17-year-old girl and likely former cashier at the Target in the 3800 block of Lexington Avenue was arrested and booked Dec. 5 at the juvenile detention center for felony theft. She’s accused of not ringing up merchandise for family and friends and letting them leave without paying, to the tune of $1,700.


St. Anthony


A 28-year-old woman told police she was assaulted by a 42-year-old man in September. The victim was treated for injuries from the assault; police are investigating.

School administrators told police about an assault at St. Anthony Village High School Nov. 22. Police reviewed security footage which showed a 17-year-old boy arguing with two other teens — one of them, also identified as a 17-year-old but not a student at SAVHS, struck the other 17-year-old. The non-student was sent a citation for misdemeanor assault and told not to return to the school; a 19-year-old man who drove the 17-year-old to the school was also mailed a notice telling him not to return to the school.

A 46-year-old woman told police Nov. 23 she was assaulted by her 36-year-old sister. The younger woman was arrested and released with a citation for misdemeanor domestic assault.


Eggs and shaving cream

A 33-year-old man told police Nov. 22 his car was egged and curse words were written on it in shaving cream as it was parked in the 3400 block of Silver Lane.


Package theft

A 33-year-old woman told police Nov. 22 a package worth $20 was stolen from her front steps at her home in the 2500 block of 34th Avenue. She told police she’d seen a suspicious man in her yard around the same time.


Stolen cash

Management at the burger joint in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road told police Nov. 21 that a large amount of cash was missing from the business safe. Police were given a list of employees who had access to the safe and are investigating.
