Jilted driver

Falcon Heights

Hit and run

Police investigating a hit and run involving a driver who struck a pedestrian the afternoon of Feb. 12 at the intersection of Larpenteur and Hamline avenues eventually tracked the driver down in the 1400 block of California Avenue. The driver, a 40-year-old Lindstrom man, was arrested for third-degree DWI.




Traffic arrests

It was all traffic stops in Lauderdale Feb. 4-10. A 37-year-old man was stopped and found to be driving with a suspended license Feb. 4 on Larpenteur Avenue at Highway 280. Another 37-year-old man was stopped Feb. 5 at Eustis Street and Idaho Avenue for driving with a revoked license and having no proof of insurance. And on Feb. 10 a 45-year-old woman was stopped, arrested, cited and sent on her way for driving with a revoked license.



Little Canada

Burglary arrest

Deputies responded to a report of a burglary just after 4 a.m. on Feb. 17 in the 200 block of County Road B2 — a female caller told police her ex-boyfriend had broken in through a window and that he had a gun. She was calling from inside her laundry room, where she was hiding with a different man. Police arrived and saw a 22-year-old St. Paul man exiting the apartment holding a window screen and the other man’s clothes, keys and cell phone. The 22-year-old told deputies he had a permit to carry a gun and they found it, loaded with a round in the chamber, in his waistband. The man, who police confirmed did have a permit to carry, was arrested and booked for felony second-degree burglary. The woman told police she’d been trying to break up with the 22-year-old for a long time.


Stolen iPod

Deputies headed to Roseville Area Middle School in the first block of County Road B2 the morning of Feb. 12 to arrest a girl for stealing an iPod. She fought with the deputies. The case was turned over to the county attorney for possible charges.


Stolen Acura

A 37-year-old Brooklyn Park woman told police the morning of Feb. 17 that her 1998 Acura had been stolen from a visitor parking lot in the 400 block of Little Canada Road some time in the two days prior.


Stolen Lexus

A 38-year-old man who lives in the 200 block of County Road B2 told police just after noon on Feb. 13 that someone had stolen his 2001 Lexus overnight. The vehicle had already been found by the time the man reported the theft — it was recovered around 5:30 a.m. stuck in the snow at Demont Avenue and Jackson Street, still in Little Canada.


Stolen Malibu

A 33-year-old Hopkins man told police the evening of Feb. 13 that someone stole his running 2001 Chevy Malibu from the 300 block of Labore Road. Roseville PD found the car that night in the 2500 block of Cleveland Avenue.



Mounds View

Crash after the snow

Officers headed to eastbound Highway 10 just west of Interstate 35W on a report of a crash the night of Feb. 10. A woman, a boy and a girl were checked by paramedics and then taken to the 5500 block of St. Michael Street.



New Brighton


A 26-year-old woman told police Feb. 19 that someone had broken into her apartment in the 1000 block of County Road D earlier that day and stolen her iPad Mini. She said she’d come home and her deadbolt was difficult to open; she found items out of place around the apartment. An officer found a hole drilled below her deadbolt; there are no suspects.



An officer on patrol the night of Feb. 17 saw a driver speeding — 67 mph in a 40 — and failing to keep a lane on Silver Lake Road near Rice Creek Road. The officer stopped the driver, identified as a 27-year-old from Spring Lake Park, who appeared to be intoxicated. The man said he’d had two beers but blew a .256 blood alcohol concentration, three times the legal limit to drive. The man was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for third-degree DWI.


Steal, return, steal

A clerk who works at the convenience store in the 1200 block of Silver Lake Road told police the morning of Feb. 13 that a skinny woman entered the store and stole some merchandise, coming back in a short while later to return some of it back to the clerk. The employee said the woman didn’t return everything; she’s pretty sure the lady stole an $8.99 pack of beef jerky and a $6.59 pack of cheese and beef sticks.





Deputies headed to the 1000 block of Tomlyn Avenue Feb. 18 on a reported recovered stolen vehicle, but they figured out the car hadn’t been stolen.

St. Anthony

Counterfeit quitter

Police received a report Feb. 9 of a woman attempting to buy a phone case from the cell phone store in the 2700 block of 39th Avenue with a counterfeit bill. The woman left the store and ditched the fake money; police took it as evidence.


The double whammy

An employee at the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road told police Feb. 6 that a 22-year-old man bought a Visa gift card and put $206.95 cents on it. The man then switched the card he’d bought with another, and told the cashier the card was defective, receiving a refund for the $206.95 card. He then left with the original $206.95 gift card, and the refund in tow.



An employee at the Speedway in the 3500 block of Stinson Boulevard told police Feb. 8 a man had taken a pack of cigarettes from the employee’s hand, then left without paying for the smokes. The man told the clerk not to follow him.
