Man without a seatbelt goes to jail

Man without a seatbelt goes to jail

Hypodermic needles, a bent spoon with burn marks and dirty Q-tips, all signs of possible heroin use, were confiscated May 24 from a vehicle stopped at 13th Street N.W. and Long Lake Road in New Brighton. Reason for the stop? The driver was not wearing a seat belt. The 25-year-old Blaine man was also charged with driving after license cancellation-inimical to public safety and booked at the Ramsey County Jail.

Arden Hills

Arrest
• This is a story remindful of the love-struck, seven-point buck that rammed a 640-pound concrete statue of an elk in a Wisconsin backyard, except there was no love lost here. When deputies responded to a report of a woman attempting to ram another woman’s vehicle in the 4600 block of Prior Circle May 20, the two women were in the street, throwing rocks at each other.
The rammer, a 27-year-old Minneapolis woman who tested .16 percent BAC, was jailed on a gross-misdemeanor DWI charge based on a previous conviction. In Wisconsin, an unhappier ending: the buck died.

Arrests
• A 12-year-old local youth got a taste of the Ramsey County Juvenile Detention Center May 16 after “interfering with [a] police officer with force” at Edgewood Middle School. The juvenile resisted arrest and refused to follow the school resource officer’s instructions. He was charged with obstructing the legal process before his trip to the JDC.
• An Anoka man left Old Hwy. 8 near County Road H in the wee hours of May 17 and hit a tree. He was booked at the jail on charges of fourth-degree DWI, third-degree BAC test refusal, failure to provide proof of  insurance and no Minnesota driver’s license. The 64-year-old was released pending further information and treatment of his injuries.

• A 34-year-old man was arrested for assaulting his 44-year-old girlfriend the morning of May 17. He was booked at the jail on the felony charge based on prior convictions.

Abandoned cat
• A woman who said she wanted to “turn in a cat” May 22 appeared at a veterinary clinic in the 2600 block of Mississippi Street but was told the clinic only accepts unwanted animals that have been rescued by police. So the woman called police. An officer suggested that the 24-year-old local, who said the cat, a gift for her daughter, “just wasn’t working out,” run an ad offering a free cat. The officer then left, the woman left, and a clinic staffer saw the cat outside the building. Police were contacted, the woman was cited for “cat at large” and the tabby was taken in by the clinic after all, out of “fear for its safety.”

Arrest
• If you have gone to court, obtaining an order for protection against someone, then you choose to associate with that person, where do you expect the protection to come from?

Look at me
• Officers did and not only cited the 30-year-old man on Stinson Boulevard for the loud muffler May 17, but also wrote him up for no insurance and driving after license revocation.

Theft
• A man took care of business May 8 at a bank in the 3800 block of Silver lake Road, left the bank, saw a bike and took it. A second customer who had left his bike, along with his backpack, unlocked outside the bank said the loss amounted to $104. The first man, age 23, who was identified from security footage of his transaction, was mailed a citation for theft. Police are still working on recovering the backpack and bike.

Theft goes awry
• Really awry. Police received a description of the thief and his vehicle after the shoplifter rushed out of a electronics store in the 2700 block of 39th Avenue N.E. May 8. The thief refused to stop and the chase was on. The suspect drove between two houses in Northeast Minneapolis, abandoning the vehicle on some railroad tracks and fled the scene on foot. Meanwhile the vehicle, having been confirmed as stolen out of Corcoran and the license plates stolen out of Minneapolis, rolled off the tracks and into a squad car, causing damage but no injuries. The suspect was seen entering a home, then exiting after dropping the property stolen from the electronics shop, and was finally taken into custody. The 31-year-old was booked at the jail on felony charges of theft and fleeing police.
