Arden Hills

If not the potholes ...

A 57-year-old man told police March 28 that he’d hit a manhole cover at the intersection of County Road E and Connelly Avenue, causing moderate damage to the undercarriage of his still-functional vehicle.


The morning after

A deputy came upon car stuck in wet grass near Welsh’s Big Ten Tavern in the 4700 block of Prior Avenue around 8 a.m. March 29. Piecing together indications from the scene, it appeared the car had been driven out of the tavern’s parking lot, through a cable barrier, down a hill and into a soggy, grassy area, where it became stuck — there were still people inside the car that morning. The driver, a 21-year-old New Brighton woman, told the deputy she and the others had decided to sleep inside the car after it had become stuck the night before. The woman showed signs of impairment and failed field sobriety tests, so she was arrested for DWI.




Falcon Heights

No news is good news.




Domestic assault

Police took a report of a girl who was out of control March 18 and when they arrived at the address they were told the young person had left out a window. The girl’s mother and the mother’s boyfriend said they’d attempted to take the girl’s phone away and they were physical in doing so. Officers spoke to the girl at a neighbor’s house and she said the phone incident had happened and she’d been strangled by her mother’s boyfriend, that she couldn’t breath and that she’d feared for her life. The boyfriend, a 39-year-old, told police a similar story, and was arrested and booked at the Ramsey County Jail for felony domestic assault by strangulation.


Slumber party

Officers came upon three people sleeping in a parked car in the 1600 block of Carl Street March 22 so they checked things out. One of the people’s names wasn’t on file and police figured out the person, a 31-year-old man, had given a false name to obscure the fact he had a warrant. The man was arrested for gross misdemeanor false information to police and a felony probation violation warrant out of Stearns County.


Terroristic threats

Police arrested a 24-year-old man March 22 in the 1800 block of Carl Street for felony threats of violence. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail.



Little Canada

Drunk and disorderly

Just after 3:30 a.m. on March 27, deputies headed to the 2700 block of Rustic Place on a report of an intoxicated person attempting to force their way into a residence through a patio door. Police arrested a 29-year-old Little Canada woman for disorderly conduct.



A deputy headed to Lakeside Court and Keller Parkway just after midnight March 24 on a report of a possible drunk driver parked in a driveway, and found a truck stopped with its white reverse lights on — the deputy decided to post up and see what would happen next. A short while later the truck turned onto the parkway going 45 mph in a 30 zone. The deputy pulled the truck over and it stopped with a tire on the curb. The driver, a 31-year-old St. Paul woman smiled when asked why she was stopped, saying “speeding and hitting the curb.” She had all the indications of being impaired and failed field sobriety tests. She blew a .263 blood alcohol concentration, three times the legal limit, and was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for third-degree DWI.



Mounds View

Almost settled

Officers headed to a dispute in the 2900 block of County Road H2 the evening of March 26, and eventually left because the situation had been mediated. However, a couple hours later they were called back to the same residence on a report of criminal property damage.


Disorderly at City Hall

Officers checked out a report of disorderly conduct the morning of March 29 at City Hall in the 2400 block of Mounds View Boulevard and ended up arresting a 33-year-old Isle woman for a Mille Lacs County warrant and for possession of a large amount of marijuana.



Officers seeking to conduct a warrant arrest tracked down their quarry the evening of March 30 hiding out in a shed in the 4000 block of Glenhaven Lane. The man was wanted for a felony drug warrant.


Who’s who?

A call came in the morning of March 28 regarding a potential domestic disturbance. Officers showed up at the residence in question and found Ramsey County Sheriff’s deputies on the scene serving an eviction notice.



New Brighton

Alarm to warrant arrest

An officer responded to a hold-up alarm at a gas station in the 200 block of County Road E in the early morning hours of April 1, and upon arrival saw a man and a woman walking out of the store at an unnaturally quick pace. They got in a car and began to leave but the officer stopped them. After identifying both, the officer found that the woman, a 33-year-old from Crystal, had a Scott County felony theft warrant out for her arrest, and she was taken into custody without incident.


Scammed on Facebook

A 22-year-old man told police March 27 that he was out $180 after attempting to buy brake calipers from an unknown person via Facebook Marketplace. The man sent a “John Reid” the cash over a payment app, and then “John Reid” went dark, deleting the Facebook account with which the man had been communicating. The man told his bank about the scam, and the bank said he’d need to file a police report.


Stolen car

A 57-year-old woman told police April 3 that she’d parked her 2011 Ford Fusion at a building in the 200 block of County Road E2 that morning and when she came out a couple of hours later it was gone.




Meth in the sock

A 42-year-old Minneapolis man stopped in the early morning hours of March 30 in the 3900 block of Victoria Street was taken to the jail for driving with a revoked license and for having altered license plates. Having been booked for those violations, deputies found a crystal-like substance in one of his socks, so the charges were changed to felony drug possession.


Purchase to robbery

Deputies were dispatched to the 5900 block of Rice Creek Parkway March 24 at 8 p.m. on a report of a robbery. A 34-year-old Shoreview man told police he’d gone there to purchase a used iPhone from a person, and was jumped by two more people who assaulted and robbed him. Police are investigating.



St. Anthony


Police headed to the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road March 19 on a report of a 66-year-old man being at the store who’d been trespassed from it. While they were running his name a Hennepin County assault warrant came up; they went to arrest him but he said he was having a medical problem, so police called an ambulance.



A 37-year-old woman who lives in an apartment in the 2500 block of Silver Lane told police March 21 that while she was out someone stole her laptop and an iPad, a loss of $907. There were no signs of forced entry into the place; management came and changed the locks.



A 51-year-old man told police March 21 that he was in an ongoing dispute with a 45-year-old man who lives in the same building. The younger man had apparently threatened to punch the older man in his face, and pulled away a wood pallet from the older man, resulting in him cutting his hand. Police sent the 45-year-old a citation for disorderly conduct.


So many warrants

Police attempted to stop a driver March 22 but she faked them out and drove off after stopping in the area of Kenzie Terrace and 27th Avenue — she eventually stopped a short time later. Police identified her as a 28-year-old, and she immediately complained about medical issues so she was taken to the hospital, evaluated and released. Officers found $133 worth of stolen groceries from Cub Foods in the car she as driving, which had been stolen out of St. Paul. The woman also had warrants out of McLeod County for drug possession, Anoka County for felony possession of burglary tools, Dakota County for drug possession, and Hennepin county for drug possession. She was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for the warrants, fleeing police, possession of stolen property and theft. The 31-year-old man who was riding in the car with her was arrested and cited for possession of syringes and possession of unlabeled prescription drugs.


Tip taker

A man walked into the Starbucks in 3700 block of Silver Lake Road March 23 and told employees he needed a look at the menu before ordering. Staffers turned around to tend to other things and when they turned back, the man had taken off with their tip jar, which contained roughly $25. Police checked the area but the man was nowhere to be found.
