Scary scammer in St. Anthony​


 

Arden Hills

Woodchuck help

A 35-year-old man who lives in the 3300 block of Katie Lane called the sheriff’s department April 30 to inquire about borrowing a live trap for a pesky woodchuck that often crawls out from under his neighbor’s wood pile and fence.

 

Falcon Heights

No news is good news.

 

Lauderdale

Controlled substance DWI

Police stopped a 20-year-old Minneapolis man April 17 at Broadway Street and Highway 280. He was suspected to be under the influence of a controlled substance, so he was taken to the hospital where he agreed to a blood test. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for misdemeanor DWI-under the influence of a controlled substance and may be charged with more crimes once the results of the blood test are in.

 

Fraud

Police were told April 16 about an unauthorized transaction for $1,083 made at a shirt printing business located in the 2500 block of Larpenteur Avenue. The account owner was reimbursed for the money and information about a possible suspect was given to police.

 

Strategic policing

Officers saw a 54-year-old man at Eustis Street and Larpenteur Avenue April 22 who is known by them to have multiple misdemeanor warrants out for his arrest. As officers approached him, the man ran away, but police did not pursue. Instead, the man was mailed a citation for fleeing from police on foot.

 

Little Canada

Inside the family job

The cousin of a 44-year-old man called the police April 30 to report the theft of a $900 Samsung Galaxy phone from their home — the 44-year-old was charged with gross misdemeanor theft.

 

Repeat offender

A man known for buying things while also stealing things from the ALDI in the 2300 block of Rice Street committed his preferred crime again as reported May 1, having bought a bag of chips while leaving with a bag full of stolen items. Deputies advised store employees to call 911 if he returns so the man can be charged with trespassing.

 

Sticky fingers

A teenage employee at a business in the 2800 block of Rice Street was caught on video taking cash from the till three different times to the tune of $300, as reported April 26. The case was turned over to the Ramsey County Attorney Office’s Juvenile Unit for possible misdemeanor theft charges.

 

Mounds View

2 Fast, 2 Furious

An officer stopped a car that was street racing in the early morning hours of April 22 on Interstate 35W near Highway 10. The driver, an 18-year-old man from White Bear Lake, was given a citation for reckless driving, while his passenger, a 16-year-old girl, was hit with a ticket for curfew violation.

 

Arrest

A 29-year-old Minneapolis man was arrested April 24 for criminal property damage and violating a domestic abuse order of protection after police responded to a report of a broken window.

 

Fight

Officers responded to apartments in the 7100 block of Silver Lake Road the night of April 28 on a report of a fight and cited a 27-year-old Mounds View man for disorderly conduct.

 

Stolen car

Someone reported the theft of a gray, 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix from the 2800 block of Couny Road H2 the night of April 24.

 

New Brighton

Don’t leave the keys inside the car

A 59-year-old woman reported her 2016 Ford Edge as stolen from her driveway in the 2000 block of Wexford Court on April 28. Its key was inside it.

 

Stolen car

Sometimes it doesn’t matter where the keys are: A 30-year-old woman told police May 2 that someone stole her 2001 Chevy Malibu from the 800 block of 12th Avenue despite the fact it was locked and she had its key in her possession.

 

Stolen package contents

A 29-year-old man told police May 1 that someone had opened a package delivered to his place in the 800 block of Eighth Avenue NW, stolen its contents — a box set of the TV series “The Last Ship,” dragonfly-style coat hangers and a clothes hamper — and left the box near his garage.

 

Shoreview

Caught in the act

An alarm sounding at an apartment construction site in the 1000 block of Gramsie Road in the early morning hours of April 30 brought deputies to the scene. Once there, they watched two men dressed in black, wearing hoods and gloves, exit the site, so they stopped the men and searched them. The search of the men, a 28-year-old from Mounds View and a 27-year-old from Minneapolis, turned up a number of name-brand tools, including a grinder and dremel nicked from the construction site, along with a Walmart debit card with a third party’s name on it. The pair also was in possession of bolt cutters and a security camera. They were booked at the Ramsey County jail for third-degree felony burglary — the Minneapolis man also had a Dakota County warrant out for drug possession.

 

‘Nautical burial’

Deputies headed to the 200 block of North Owasso Boulevard April 25 on a report of a muskrat stuck in a fence. The animal was pronounced dead at the scene and was given, per the police report, a “nautical burial” in the nearby lake.

(Turkey) gang problems

Police were summoned to the intersection of Hodgson Road and County Road J during rush hour April 27 because an injured turkey — evidently hit by a car — was surrounded by a gang of other turkeys that were “freaking out,” as stated in the police report.

 

St. Anthony

Arrest

A 19-year-old man was arrested April 20 at 37th Avenue and Chander Drive for an outstanding Anoka County assault warrant. He was booked at the Hennepin County Jail.

 

Bike belligerent

A 39-year-old woman told police April 22 that a boy had thrown her daughters bike around and removed parts from it while they were at the park, causing $50 worth of damage. The woman said she didn’t know who the kid was.

 

Deal gone bad

A 41-year-old woman told police April 20 she’d gotten into a car accident with a 26-year-old man on April 17 at Silver Lake Road and Silver Lane. The two had agreed not to involve the police and came to an agreement that the man would pay for repairs to the woman’s car. Later, the man refused to pay. Police told the woman that there was nothing they could do — it was a civil, not criminal matter — but police did determine the man did not have car insurance at the time of the accident, so he was mailed a citation for driving an uninsured car.

 

Eggs

A woman who lives in the 3200 block of 32nd Avenue told police April 19 her home was egged for a second time and that something was poured onto her vehicle. She said she had security footage that shows possible suspects, an 18-year-old woman and a 15-year-old girl, though she wished for no further police action at the time.

 

Theft

Security video caught on tape a 55-year-old man shoplifting $250 worth of merchandise from the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road April 20. Police tracked down the man and interviewed him, and gave him a citation for misdemeanor theft.
