Roseville/Bulletin police reports • Published June 4, 2019

Arden Hills

Abandoned convertible

Deputies the night of May 22 checked out an abandoned 2001 Chrysler Sebring that was blocking the driveway to a construction site at Highway 96 and Interstate 35W. The car was towed.

 

Burglary

A 58-year-old man told police May 24 that someone had entered his home in the 1200 block of Karth Lake Drive on May 19 or 20 through the attached garage and stole a drill, saw and charger worth a total of $165.

 

Low blood sugar crash

An 18-year-old Coon Rapids man driving westbound on County Road E just after 5 p.m. May 22 passed out due to low blood sugar near Highway 51, driving off the road and into a yard. He and his passenger, a 58-year-old woman also from Coon Rapids, had to be extricated from the vehicle; they were taken to the hospital for treatment.

 

Smoke on the water

Police noticed a car parked just after 11 p.m. May 23 at the Lake Johanna boat launch in the 1700 block of Lake Johanna Boulevard so they checked it out. The driver, a 20-year-old New Brighton man, was found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana; he was cited for it and sent on his way.

 

Wrong dude

Deputies stopped a driver the morning of May 24 in the 3600 block of Snelling Avenue because they thought the man had a felony warrant out for his arrest. It turned out the 20-year-old Blaine man they pulled over has a different middle name and was born one day different than the person who actually has the warrant; he was sent on his way.

 

 

Falcon Heights

Found BB gun

A resident who lives in the 1600 block of Maple Knoll Drive found a BB gun in their backyard as reported the evening of May 25. Police think it could have been used in the April 27 robbery of a Falcon Heights gas station.

 

Theft from auto

A 64-year-old man reported the theft of his wallet and debit cards May 26, figuring that the billfold had been taken from his car outside his residence in the 1500 block of Larpenteur Avenue sometime in the previous three days. He became aware of the theft when his bank notified him of unusual purchases, at which point he canceled his bank card.

 

 

Lauderdale

Concerned citizens

A couple witnesses told police they’d seen two people attempting to steal a car in the 1600 block of Carl Street on May 7 — they turned over photos and video of the people in question. The car’s owner, a 33-year-old man, turned over additional evidence from inside the car.

 

Lost and found

An officer came upon a car with no license plates or temporary tags May 6 parked in the 1600 block of Carl Street. It had been reported as stolen out of Lauderdale, so the officer contacted the car’s owner.

 

 

Little Canada

Alarm

Deputies checked out a sounding alarm in the early morning hours of May 21 at a business in the 3000 block of Spruce Street. They found the back door was unsecured; the business was checked and cleared.

 

Assault

A 61-year-old St. Paul man was charged with terroristic threats and second-degree assault with a deadly weapon for stabbing his girlfriend at a Little Canada address during an argument the evening of May 21.

 

Dispatch from the opioid crisis

Deputies were alerted to a possible overdose the night of May 20 in the 100 block of Little Canada Road. They found a 24-year-old woman who wasn’t moving and who apparently wasn’t breathing. They administered Narcan, an overdose antidote, and performed CPR, with the woman regaining consciousness. She was taken to Regions hospital.

 

Dogs in the shed

An animal control officer the night of May 22 gave the 35-year-old owner of two dogs a written warning for having unlicensed dogs, barking and inadequate shelter. The woman keeps the dogs in a shed in the first block of Little Circle Drive, and the animals’ barking has been an ongoing issue for neighbors.

 

DWI

Just before bar close time on May 25, a deputy headed to a gas station in the 1000 block of County Road E in Vadnais Heights on a report of two drunk men in a car in the station’s parking lot. The deputy located the men and watched them drive off, get on Interstate 35E and go fast, clocking 95 mph in a 60-mph zone, while not keeping a lane. The deputy stopped the car on the highway at Little Canada Road; the driver, a 31-year-old Roseville man, blew a .208 blood alcohol concentration. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for fourth-degree DWI.

 

Road rage

A 39-year-old St. Paul man told deputies the afternoon of May 22 that someone had caused about $500 worth of damage to his car following a traffic dispute at Rice Street and County Road C.

 

Robbery

A 50-year-old man called the police the morning of May 24 from the 2900 block of Country Drive to report that he’d been robbed by some acquaintances. They assaulted him and stole his money and phone. Police are investigating.

 

 

Mounds View

Teenage robbers

A robbery was reported the afternoon of May 21 at the intersection of County Road H and Long Lake Road. Police went on to arrest three boys, each 15 years old, on first-degree aggravated robbery warrants.

 

Teenage tampering

Police arrested three boys, ages 14, 14 and 15, the evening of May 24 after a report came in that they’d been tampering with a vehicle in the 2200 block of Mounds View Boulevard. The kids had run from police but were eventually caught.

 

 

New Brighton

Chain reaction

A prowler overnight into May 23 found an unlocked vehicle parked in a driveway in the first block of 19th Avenue, and found a garage door opener inside it. The person used the garage door opener to open the garage, where they found an unlocked 2017 Honda Pilot with its key inside. The 41-year-old owner of the Pilot reported it stolen that morning.

 

Stolen bike

A 35-year-old woman who lives in the 300 block of Old Highway 8 told police May 26 that someone had stolen her son’s bike from the garage sometime in the past three weeks. The bike’s lock had been broken.

 

Switch-o, gas-go

A man prepaid for $20 worth of gas the evening of May 21 at the Exxon station in the 200 block of County Road E2 before using a different pump to put $42.77 worth of gas into his Buick Regal before driving off.

 

 

Shoreview

Aggressive doe

A caller who lives in the 3300 block of Emmert Street reported May 22 an ongoing issue with an aggressive deer — that morning the doe had attacked the caller’s dog, fracturing its jaw. All assume it may have a fawn nearby.

 

Another chain reaction

A 64-year-old man who lives in the 1000 block of Westcliff Curve told police the morning of May 24 that someone entered his unlocked car overnight and used the garage door opener to get into the garage. There, the prowler took $6 from another unlocked vehicle; it’s unclear if the person entered the house through the unlocked service door to the attached garage.

 

Dozing raccoon

A caller who lives in the 4400 block of Lexington Avenue told police May 22 there was an unknown animal sleeping in their window well. It was a raccoon, out cold — once poked with a vacuum extension the animal hopped up and was out of there.

 

Formal obedience training

An animal control officer gave a written warning to a 24-year-old woman May 20 whose large dog had been jumping on neighbors’ vehicles in the 1700 block of Oakwood Drive and scratching them. The officer encouraged the woman to enroll her pet in formal obedience training.

 

Slashed tires

Someone slashed the tires of three cars at Wilson Park in the 800 block of County Road F as reported the night of May 25. The vandal damaged 10 tires.

 

Tennis court arson

Deputies caught a juvenile leaving the scene of a burning tennis court net at Bucher Park in the 5900 block of Mackubin Street the night of May 23. The kid was ID’d and released to his parents, facing possible restitution and city charges of arson.

 

Unlocked car

A 38-year-old man who lives in the 900 block of Cannon Avenue told police the morning of May 25 that someone overnight had entered his unlocked car, parked on his driveway, and stolen his wallet, which contained multiple credit cards.

 

 

St. Anthony

Contractor issues

A 37-year-old woman contacted police May 16 to report she’d paid a contractor $12,500 up front for work that was to have been completed by April 1. She’d been trying to contact the man for two weeks. Police left a message for the contractor instructing him to contact the PD.

 

Criminal sexual conduct

A 15-year-old girl told police May 13 that she’d been sexually assaulted by a 15-year-old male acquaintance. The boy was charged with gross misdemeanor criminal sexual conduct.

 

Found car

A 50-year-old man told police May 7 that on his way to work he found a stolen car in the 3000 block of Old Highway 8. Police checked it out, and sure enough, the car had been reported as stolen out of Roseville. Roseville PD let the car’s owner know it had been located.

 

Honest felon

A tow company called the police May 19 to report a suspicious tow request that had come in for the 2700 block of Old Highway 8. The man who called the company said his vehicle was stuck on a retaining wall — he said he needed the car to be moved quickly because he had warrants. Police headed to the scene and, though the man wasn’t found immediately, police tracked him down based on what witnesses said. The 28-year-old was matched with the car since he had a key fob for it. The vehicle came up as stolen out of St. Louis Park, and the man was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for felony possession of stolen property, leaving the scene of an accident and providing false information to police.

 

Lock it up

A 75-year-old man told police May 15 that someone entered his unlocked car as it was parked in an underground garage in the 2600 block of Kenzie Terrace. The prowler stole his checkbook.

 

Theft by swindle

Employees at O’Reilly Auto Parts in the 2900 block of Pentagon Drive called the police on a 54-year-old man who was attempting to return $127.01 worth of merchandise that he’d purchased fraudulently a different day. The man had used a business account for which he was not an authorized signer to get the merchandise. Police came and cited him for theft by swindle; he’s banned from the business for one year.

 

‘Quick change’

A bank teller at the Wells Fargo in the 2700 block of 39th Avenue told police May 13 that she’d come up $1,600 short in her cash drawer. She linked it to a man who’d wanted to convert $100 bills into $50 bills, but had changed his mind. She figured the man pulled a “quick change” on her; police have a possible suspect.
