Warrant arrests

An officer on patrol May 1 in the 1700 block of Malvern Street came upon a suspicious RV and people in the area. After identifying those inside the camper, the officer learned that one of them, a 28-year-old man, was wanted on a DOC warrant for violating his release because of a first-degree assault. The man was booked at the Ramsey County Jail and the rest of people were told to move the RV.


An officer saw a 25-year-old man walking in the 1600 block of Eustis Street May 2 and knew he had a Ramsey County warrant out for felony terroristic threats, so the officer arrested him and booked him at the jail.



Little Canada

A 33-year-old man and 29-year-old woman who live in the 3000 block of Maple Leaf Court told police the morning of May 8 that someone had entered their house overnight, stealing a purse, backpack and a phone.

Hide in the house

A deputy attempted to stop a car the morning of May 6 in the area of Rice Street and County Road C. The driver attempted to ditch police by pulling into a home’s driveway in the 2600 block of Rice Street, and police ended up arresting two Coon Rapids men, ages 32 and 28, for outstanding warrants; a third person in the car was released. The deputy also found drugs in the car, so the men might be facing more charges.



A 41-year-old Columbia Heights man is the prime suspect in the theft of $485 from a window tinting business in the 3000 block of Centerville Road. The business made the report on May 9; police tried to contact the man but couldn’t, so he was mailed a citation for misdemeanor theft.



Mounds View

The 34-year-old Brooklyn Center man initially gave the police officer the name of a different person and was found out; the man also had an open bottle of booze in the car, had violated the interlock system in the vehicle and was eventually found to be intoxicated.

New Brighton

Likely story

A 32-year-old man caught well after dark May 12 peeking into vehicles with a flashlight outside a business in the first block of Old Highway 8 told police he worked there; a quick run of the man’s name through the system showed he was wanted for a Ramsey County drug warrant. The man was arrested and police found a glass pipe in his pocket, which officers refer to as a “meth bubble.”


She did what she said she would

A 29-year-old woman ran into her ex-boyfriend at the laundromat, got into a fight with him and informed him she was going to mess up his car so he couldn’t get to work. Sure enough, she showed up at the man’s home the morning of May 8 and slashed all four of his car’s tires and ripped off its license plate as the man’s mother and sister watched. The woman was arrested and charged with fourth-degree criminal property damage.


Stolen plates

A 26-year-old woman who lives in condos in the 600 block of Old Highway 8 told police May 10 that someone had swiped her license plates and replaced them with some that weren’t her’s. When police ran the imposter plates, they came up as stolen out of Brooklyn Center from a car of the same make as the woman’s.


A 37-year-old woman told police May 14 just before noon that she’d parked in a lot in the 1900 block of Silver Lake Road that morning around 8 a.m., and between then and the time of her reporting, someone had stolen the back license plate off her car.




Blazed and confused

A deputy came upon a 21-year-old Richfield man the afternoon of May 10, stopped in his car and perplexed by a “Road Closed” sign on Hodgson Road at Rice Street. As noted by the deputy, “Strong smell of marijuana did not help his ability to navigate his predicament.” The man was also driving without a license, didn’t have insurance and it wasn’t even his car, so he was arrested and the car was towed.


Domestic assault

The daughter of a 53-year-old Mora woman who had her mother watching her kids at her Shoreview home came home May 10 to find the woman drunk. The younger woman asked her mother to leave, and she became violent, pushing her daughter and attempting to punch her; the woman also attempted to punch her son. Deputies had to drag the woman off and force her into the squad car after she kicked them. The woman was charged with disorderly conduct, fifth-degree assault, obstructing the legal process and misdemeanor domestic assault.


Fluffy dog

A report of a small fluffy dog barking in a backyard for two hours came in around 6 a.m. on May 7 from the 4800 block of Hanson Road. A deputy showed up and no one answered the door while the pup was still in the yard, yapping. The issue was referred to an animal control officer.


Ticket fraud

A 55-year-old woman told police May 10 that someone had used her credit card to purchase plane tickets from Miami to Minneapolis and back. The fraud was conducted through a travel agency in Las Vegas, and the woman had her credit card in her possession the whole time.



St. Anthony


A 35-year-old St. Anthony man stopped May 4 at 37th Avenue and Highcrest Road was suspected of having been intoxicated but refused a breath test; he was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for test refusal and third-degree DWI. A 21-year-old Minneapolis man stopped May 5 at 39th Avenue and Stinson Boulevard submitted to a blood test because he was suspected of being intoxicated; he was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for fourth-degree DWI, and may face further charges once the blood test results come back.
