Falcon Heights

Peeved about parking

Deputies took a report the afternoon of April 19 about a man in a van parked in a “no parking” zone at Falcon Heights Elementary School in the 1300 block of Garden Avenue that day. He argued with a passerby about where he’d stopped his vehicle, then sped away in anger.

Little Canada

Credit card fraud

Deputies took a report April 14 from a Little Canada resident whose stolen credit cards had been used at a business in Roseville.


Shots fired ... or marbles?

Mounds View

Burns in the family

As yard cleanup begins remember that its illegal to burn yard waste. Police ticketed a 52-year-old man April 25 for illegal burning, and then two days later on April 27, ticketed an 80-year-old woman with the same last name for the same infraction at the same address in the 8000 block of Long Lake Road.


Poor dog

An officer headed to the 8000 block of Long Lake Road the afternoon of April 25 on a report that two drivers had hit the same loose dog.


Rollover, DWI

Texting and driving

A 21-year-old Zimmerman man stopped April 24 at Silver Lake Road and County Road I was apparently so wrapped up in the business on his phone that he blew a stop sign. He was ticketed for texting and driving and failure to stop.



New Brighton

Disorderly conduct

A 49-year-old man caught smoking marijuana on the patio at Cowboy Jack’s in the 2300 block of Palmer Drive around 8:30 p.m. April 25 was arrested for disorderly conduct and drug possession. He refused to leave when caught and began attempting to kiss and touch a female patron against her will. When confronted by police, the man began to leave, dropping items into booths that police discovered to be drug paraphernalia.



An hour after midnight on May 2 an officer patrolling near the Cub Foods in the 2600 block of Rice Creek Road noticed a 41-year-old woman driving a car whom he’d stopped cited last year for an invalid license. He ran her name and found she had a revoked license, so he stopped her. She was shaky and had bloodshot eyes, eventually admitting to taking methamphetamine, Prozac and oxycodone; she had used the meth because she couldn’t afford her Adderall prescription and had tried to call a treatment center prior to using. She was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for third-degree DWI and given a list of treatment centers.


Lil’ shoplifter

With the help of a child, two men, ages 36 and 31, attempted to steal a cart full of groceries from the Cub Foods in the 2600 block of Rice Creek Road the evening of April 28. The men filled the cart with merchandise then left the store separately; the kid then pushed the cart out of the store without paying for anything. The men told store security they each figured the other guy would pay.


Non-lockers beware

A 51-year-old woman told police the afternoon of April 29 that her gym bag, containing her house keys and keys to her Land Rover, new iPhone and debit cards, had been stolen from an unlocked locker at the LA Fitness in the 1100 block of Silver Lake Road. She went on to discover the thief had stolen her SUV, which turned up in St. Paul, containing only its ignition key.


Reckless kids

A 69-year-old woman who lives in the 1400 block of Champion Drive told police April 25 she was concerned about kids recklessly riding bikes in the neighborhood, which she blamed for a small scratch she noticed on her vehicle the day before above its fuel cap. She blamed the kids for other dings and scratches on her car, too.




A caller reported April 18 the burglary of their apartment located in the 4100 block of Lexington Avenue.


Thefts from auto

Residents reported multiple thefts from vehicles April 18 in the 1000 block of Gramsie Road. Another report of theft from auto came on April 16 from the 1500 block of Hall Street.



St. Anthony

Chase, ditched car

Police saw a suspicious vehicle April 16 at Edward Street and 31st Avenue that came up as stolen out of Edina. Before officers could turn on their lights, the car sped off, topping out at near 80 mph on residential streets before police broke off the chase. Later the same day, the vehicle was found abandoned in the back yard of a home in the 3100 block of Croft Drive. Police found footprints leading away from it and the Hennepin County Crime lab processed the car.


On April 19, officers attempted to stop a speeding driver in the area of Stinson Boulevard and 35th Avenue about whom they’d received complaints. The driver sped off, but then about two blocks later at Stinson and 33rd Avenue they parked the car, jumped out and ran. Police caught the driver, an 18-year-old man, who was booked a the Hennepin County Jail for felony fleeing police. His two passengers, both juveniles, were also caught by police; they were turned over to their parents.


Time to lock the car

Police took 10 reports of prowlers entering unlocked cars looking for items to steal the week of April 15 to 21 — in two cases, they found the cars’ keys inside it, so they stole the vehicle. In one instance, a 41-year-old woman told police on April 15 that someone had stolen her 2011 Chevy, worth $10,000, from the 3400 block of Harding Street. She was able to recover it using OnStar — it was found in Minneapolis. A 56-year-old woman who lives in the 3500 block of Coolidge Street told police April 17 that her 2011 Subaru had been stolen overnight.
