New Brighton

Face tats and some landscaping

Security footage from the afternoon of June 14 at the Cub Foods in the 2600 block of Rice Creek Road shows a man with facial tattoos loading 20 bags of mulch and some potted plants into the back of his white Chevy Silverado and then drive off without paying. The footage provided a clear shot of his license plate, allowing police to track the vehicle back to a 34-year-old from East Bethel. Police got ahold of the man’s grandmother, who said though she doesn’t know where her grandson is, she does get his mail and that she’ll pass the theft citation along to him.


Rode off with the riding mower

A man driving a green Silverado stole a riding lawnmower the morning of June 25 from Beisswengar’s Hardware in the 1800 block of Old Highway 8. The mower had been stacked along the north side of the store, a loss of $1,579.99.


Randoms in the camper

A man who’d rented a woman his camper, which he parks in the 700 block of Fifth Street, told police the night of June 20 that two random people had taken the camper over, apparently with permission from the woman to whom he’d originally rented. Police extracted from the camper a 49-year-old Blaine man and a 51-year-old woman from St. Paul. The man said he’d gotten in a fight with his parents, with whom he lives, and the woman had just gotten in a fight with her boyfriend, so they’d needed a place to hang out. Police found methamphetamine on the man, who was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for felony drug possession. The woman was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia after a meth pipe was found on her.


Stolen phone

A 21-year-old employee at the McDonald’s in the 1100 block of Silver Lake Road forgot her iPhone 7 on a table during her break; security footage tells the story of what happened to the phone next. A young man walked up to the table holding a tray, on which he put the phone. While emptying the tray into the garbage he pocketed the phone and then left. The phone’s a loss of $250, along with the woman’s credit card, which was held in the phone’s case.


Walk it off ...

A man was seen walking away from his Jeep, which he’d crashed into a tree the evening of June 25 at the intersection of County Road E and Old Highway 8; a passerby reported the scene to police. Officers tracked down the man, who said he’d swerved to avoid an animal; he ended up having a revoked license and seemed to be under the influence of a stimulant. The man said he’d used methamphetamine that week. ID’d as a 38-year-old, he was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for fourth-degree DWI and driving with a revoked license.





Deputies nabbed three juveniles in the early morning hours of June 21 on Lexington Avenue at Interstate 694 after they crashed their car and fled. The three were wanted by Woodbury police and Washington County Sheriff’s deputies for burglary and auto theft.

A 35-year-old man parked his bike outside the Shoreview Community Center in the 4500 block of Victoria Street on June 22 without locking it to the bike rack and it was stolen, a $200 loss.


Theft from auto

A 33-year-old Anoka man and a 25-year-old Champlin woman told police the evening of June 16 that someone had broken into their car as it was parked in the 3600 block of Victoria Street. The thief smashed the front passenger window and stole a purse and a laptop.


Turtle in a window well

A caller from the 3500 block of Tiffany Lane told police June 18 they had a snapping turtle stuck in their egress window. Deputies don’t remove wild animals from private property, so the caller was told some of their options; eventually a neighbor pulled the turtle out with a fishing net then wheelbarrowed it down to the lake.



St. Anthony

Act natural ...

An officer in the parking lot of the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road on June 11 saw a man in a passing car duck as the officer passed. The officer stopped the car and found that the man, a 26-year-old, had four outstanding warrants: two out of Hennepin County for theft and drugs, another out of Stearns County for drugs and another out of Wright County for driving with a suspended license. The man was booked at the Ramsey County Jail. The 23-year-old woman driving the car was given a verbal warning for possession of drug paraphernalia.
