Busted window

Officers headed to the 2200 block of Mounds View Boulevard the afternoon of Feb. 23 on a report of several people fighting and detained a woman who was disorderly, trying to argue and fight. Police took her to detox.



New Brighton

Attempted diesel theft

An officer headed to a business in the 400 block of Second Street NW the morning of Feb. 22 on a report of an attempted fuel theft. The owner of the business said they’d found a tanker truck containing diesel had been damaged by someone apparently trying to take fuel from it. The would-be thieves didn’t succeed, but likely caused $3,000 worth of damage to the truck.


Fire in the car

The owner of an auto repair shop in the 400 block of Old Highway 8 told police the morning of Feb. 22 that security footage from the previous night showed a man wandering the business’s lot checking to see which cars were unlocked. The man managed to get inside a Land Rover, and proceeded to get in and out of it, wandering around. The man apparently lit a fire in the SUV, with remnants of it and the smell of smoke found inside the truck that morning. The auto shop owner said the vehicle belongs to a customer and that he’ll fix what needs fixing, expecting it to cost $700.



Flashes gun, boosts car

An 18-year-old man called police the evening of Feb. 25 after someone drove off in his 2005 Hyundai Accent that he’d left idling outside of Beisswenger’s Hardware in the 1800 block of Old Highway 8. A female witness said she’d seen a man with a beard barge out of the store and take off in the car; a 69-year-old store employee said he’d let a man fitting that description in the back employee entrance of the store after the guy flashed a gun. The car’s been listed as stolen.


Intoxicated woman steals car, crashes

An officer headed to the Shell Gas station in the 900 block of County Road D the evening of Feb. 20 on a report of a drunk woman in the store. The woman wasn’t to be found at that gas station, but turned up shortly thereafter at the Speedway across the street attempting to steal and drive off in an SUV while its owner stood there, locked out. The officer pointed his gun at the woman and told her to get out, but she sped off; the officer followed in his squad car but couldn’t find her. The woman turned up in St. Anthony at Old Highway 8 and Highway 88, having crashed into a tree and was held by St. Anthony PD. The woman, identified as a 20-year-old from Minneapolis, was eventually booked for third-degree DWI, motor vehicle theft, felony property damage and underage consumption.




Accidentally shot?

Squad cars responded to a 911 hangup in the early morning hours of Feb. 24 in the 1900 block of Bluestem Lane. When dispatch called the number back, the person on the other end said they wished to cancel the 911 call and that a person injured by an apparent accidental gunshot had taken themselves to the hospital. A gunshot victim, ID’d as a 20-year-old woman from Brooklyn Park, showed up at Unity Hospital and said she’d been shot accidentally at the Bluestem Lane address.


Chase ended, caught later

During the afternoon rush hour on Feb. 22, a deputy noticed a car that had been stolen out of Minneapolis two days prior on Highway 96, and attempted to stop it near the intersection of Round Lake Boulevard. The car didn’t stop, and sped onto northbound Interstate 35W, driving 70 mph on the shoulder around heavy traffic. The deputy broke off the chase out of safety concerns. A short time later, the car was located in the 5900 block of Lexington Avenue, as it’d been seen speeding. Deputies arrested the three Minneapolis residents who’d been in the car, and the 27-year-old man who was driving the car is facing charges of fleeing police in a motor vehicle and motor vehicle theft.



Just after 11 p.m. on Feb. 22 a 20-year-old Shoreview man attempted to turn left from Highway 96 onto Hamline Avenue, failing to yield, and was hit by a 17-year-old boy from Shoreview. Both cars were totaled, and each driver had minor injuries that did not require hospitalization.



A deputy stopped a 39-year-old Shoreview man just before midnight Feb. 23 at the corner of County Road E and Lexington Avenue and arrested him for fourth-degree DWI.



St. Anthony

Domestic assault

A 40-year-old woman told police Feb. 11 that her 36-year-old husband had slapped her. He was arrested and booked at the Hennepin County Jail for misdemeanor domestic assault.



The daughter of an 87-year-old woman told police Feb. 15 that she suspected her mother had been the victim of a scam. The daughter noticed her mother had written a $600 check to an unknown person.


Green sheathing

A construction worker arrived at a worksite in the 2800 block of Anthony Lane Feb. 11 and found that someone had stolen 20 sheets of green sheathing, for a loss of $240.


Hair-raising caper

A thief posing as an employee at the beauty supply store in the 2700 block of 39th Avenue on Feb. 12 stole two packs of hair extensions while the real employee at the shop helped a customer. Once the employee realized what had happened, she checked the area and found the extensions’ packaging discarded on the ground. It was a loss of $158.


Tan fraud

A 21-year-old woman who works at Totally Tan in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road told police Feb. 13 that someone had taken her credit card from an employees-only area at the business then used it at the tanning salon. There’s security video of a woman taking and using it; police have a possible suspect and the case is pending further investigation.



Security at the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road caught two girls, ages 17 and 15, attempting to steal more than $800 worth of merchandise on Feb. 16. The girls were released to an adult relative and told they should expect to be formally charged with gross misdemeanor theft.
