Caller impersonating fictitious officer
The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department is warning residents about an ongoing scam in Ramsey County.
The sheriff’s office has received over a dozen reports of county residents getting calls from a scam artist.

For nearly a minute March 24, members of the state Senate stood in silence.
Moments after they unanimously voted to pass a bill from Sen. Chuck Wiger, DFL-Maplewood, to rename Highway 36 to the “Officer Richard Crittenden Memorial Highway,” they paused to honor the North St. Paul cop who was killed while responding to a domestic dispute call on Labor Day, Sept. 7, 2009.
County deposits quarter million in cash for building
Despite having its bid passed up in October for being too low, Ramsey County recently signed a letter of intent to purchase the Vadnais Heights Sports Center and made a $250,000 deposit on the building.
The St. Paul Police Department’s SWAT team reported it shot Cory Anthony Lee, 37, after exchanging fire with officers.
Around 10 a.m. Friday, March 21, police went to a residence on the 600 block of Maryland Avenue East to arrest Lee in connection with an aggravated assault investigation. The assault in question took place a few days earlier, on Tuesday, March 18.
