Falcon Heights

Garage burglary

A 35-year-old man who lives in the 1800 block of Simpson Street told police the morning of June 8 that someone had rummaged through one of his cars and then used the garage door opener inside it to get into the garage. The prowler stole a bicycle from inside the garage.


On the prowl

A person who lives in the 1700 block of Albert Street told police the morning of June 8 they had video of someone attempting to enter their car; a different resident told police that their car on the block had been rummaged through. A deputy on the scene followed the prowler’s path out of frame in the footage around to the back of a neighboring home and found a window that appeared to have been tampered with, though that homeowner said nobody had gotten inside. Another resident on that same block, a 41-year-old man, told police that morning their unlocked car had been entered and that an iPad had been stolen from it. Financial information on the tablet was then used to make unauthorized purchases.

Obvious DWI

Once the car was stopped, its driver, a 24-year-old White Bear Lake man, was apparently intoxicated, and the .183 blood alcohol content he blew bore out that fact. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for third-degree DWI.

New Brighton

Caught in the act

A 37-year-old man told police he was leaving LA Fitness in the 1100 block of Silver Lake Road the night of June 6 when he came upon two young men who’d gotten into his car and had broken into the car parked next to it.

The man told police he was out $40 cash and a bottle of Adderall; the duo had pried his windows open.

Stolen bike

A 32-year-old father told police June 7 that someone had stolen his son’s bike from a bike rack at the north end of the swimming beach at Long Lake Regional Park.

Whole case

An employee at the Exxon in the 200 block of County Road E2 told police that the night of June 11 three teens walked into the store. The clerk said he told them they all couldn’t be in there at the same time, and they became angry, grabbed a display case off the counter and then left in a white Toyota RAV4, taking off east on County Road E2. Security footage backed up the clerk’s account.




BB gun trouble

‘Giant’ turtle

A caller in the 4000 block of Wilshire Circle told police June 5 there was a “giant” snapping turtle hiding under a bench on the front porch.
