Shotgun in the back seat

Security at Bethel University on April 30 had asked a group to leave campus and as they left, saw a shotgun sitting in the back seat of one of the group member’s cars. The sheriff’s office sent squad cars and deputies arrested the driver of the car with the gun inside.


The muddy dog

A Benton Way resident reported April 28 a recurring problem, which is a muddy dog that often runs through the neighborhood unattended. The dog’s owner was advised of city animal ordinances.



Falcon Heights


A deputy noticed a vehicle parked in a lot in the 2000 block of Larpenteur Avenue the night of May 4, which had been involved in a number of impaired driving complaints. Sure enough, the man behind the wheel of the car was impaired, and was arrested for DWI.




Domestic assault

A 26-year-old man told police April 22 that he’d been stabbed in the hand by his brother, a 25-year-old man. Police found the brother in the house the two share and arrested him; he was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for second-degree assault. 


Revenge porn warrant?

Police stopped a 27-year-old woman April 28 at Larpenteur Avenue and Eustis Street and arrested her and booked her at the Ramsey County Jail on a Dakota County warrant for disseminating sexual images without the consent of the owner.



Little Canada

The cock crows too many times

Little Circle Drive neighbors had had it May 4, hearing a rooster in someone’s house crowing all day. The people with the chicken said it’d be gone in an hour; a deputy reminded them of city code that prohibits keeping poultry.



A caller who lives off Australian Avenue told police the morning of April 29 that their neighbor’s dog had again hopped the fence and was attacking the caller’s pets and other people. On May 3, a caller who lives on Ontario Road reported a stray dog, described by a deputy as a “skittish puppy,” had dug under the caller’s fence to hang out with her dogs in the backyard. The pup was taken to the St. Paul Animal Control Center. On May 4, deputies picked up two more dogs in the 2900 block of Edgerton Street, which were also taken to the animal control center.



Mounds View


Police came upon a stolen vehicle the evening of May 2 in the 2100 block of Terrace Drive.

Tough times at City Hall

Police found a man lying on the floor in the entryway to City Hall in the 2400 block of Mounds View Boulevard the evening of April 28. They gave him a ride to Union Gospel Mission.



Police stopped and cited a 34-year-old New Brighton woman just before 8 a.m. in the 7300 block of Silver Lake Road for failing to stop for the school bus arm. A reminder: whatever you’re doing isn’t more important than a child’s safety.



New Brighton

Disorderly conduct

Police took a call from a woman May 3 who told them her 26-year-old boyfriend wouldn’t let her leave for work. When police arrived the man cursed at officers and challenged them to get him; an officer pulled a Taser and the man was arrested with incident. Police found a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia on him, and he was booked for disorderly conduct.


Non-neighborly conduct

A bonfire with music happening the Sunday evening of May 5 in the 1200 block of Seventh Street turned dark after a 61-year-old man confronted his fire-having neighbor, telling him to turn off the music. With it being 9:15 p.m., the neighbor said the city noise ordinance didn’t take effect until 10 p.m.; the 61-year-old persisted, yelling and swearing. The man and his neighbor eventually got into a scuffle in which both were minorly injured. The neighbor called the cops, who cited the 61-year-old for disorderly conduct.


Stolen doughnuts

A 51-year-old man on May 3 reported the theft of $60 and two doughnuts — chocolate cream and chocolate-glazed — that had been on his nightstand in his room at the health and rehab center in the 800 block of First Avenue NW. He suspects someone took the snacks and cash while he was visiting his brother that same day.


Stolen phone

A 17-year-old boy told police May 6 that someone stole his iPhone from his nearby gym bag while he was playing basketball that day at the LA Fitness in the 1100 block of Silver Lake Road. He told police that his friends had seen a man moving things near the bag; the man went outside the gym and then came back in and was confronted by gym staff, but didn’t have the phone.


The long way home

Police headed to the Hilton Homewood Suites in the 1800 block of Old Highway 8 the night of April 30 on a report of a 41-year-old man who wouldn’t pay his cab fare. The man didn’t dispute the fact that he wasn’t going to pay — he’d been driven around for two hours, racking up a fare of $195.45, apparently looking for a friend who’d give him money. The man was told if he didn’t pay in 24 hours he’d be cited for theft; he didn’t pay so he was issued a citation. Hilton staffers told police they suspected the man had paid for his hotel room with a fraudulent credit card, so police removed him from hotel premises.




Domestic assault

Deputies arrested a 53-year-old man the afternoon of May 1 for allegedly strangling his 14-year-old son. The man was arrested for felony domestic assault.



St. Anthony 

Beauty bust

Two people entered the beauty supply store in the 2700 block of 39th Avenue April 25 — one distracted employees while the other stole a pair of $115 clippers. The two got away and police are looking at security footage of the theft.


Catalytic converter

A 30-year-old woman told police April 27 that someone had stolen the catalytic converter off her vehicle as it was parked at apartments in the 3200 block of Diamond 8 Terrace. Scrappers steal the exhaust system part, which contains precious metals like platinum, and sell them to unscrupulous metal dealers.



A 24-year-old man stopped April 26 in the 3000 block of 31st Avenue was arrested and cited for possession of methamphetamine and operating an uninsured vehicle. He was released and promised that he’d be charged with a formal complaint.
