S.A. teen drinks, faces the law, now faces Grandma

Bulletin Area police reports week of May 13, 2015, for Arden Hills, Mounds View, New Brighton, North Oaks, St. Anthony, Shoreview and Vadnais Heights

Arden Hills

All was quiet in the city of Arden Hills last week with no hair-raising reports of stealing, drinking, fighting or off-road driving that would interest our readers.

Mounds View

Four watches were stolen and $8,000 was reported missing April 23 following an overnight burglary of a residence in the 5500 block of Saint Michael Street. The prowler entered the occupied home through an unlocked sliding glass door. The burglary is under investigation.

House shot
Someone acted out his or her issues on a residence in the 2200 block of Pinewood Drive, firing a shot the afternoon of April 22 and leaving a bullet hole in the siding. An investigation continues.

There goes another Honda...
A ‘94 Honda Civic went missing overnight April 23 from the parking lot of an apartment building in the 7600 block of Greenfield Avenue. St. Paul Police later recovered what was left of the abandoned and stripped vehicle.

Probable cause DWI
Acting on a complaint about a drunk driver at County Hwy. 10 and Long Lake Road, police pulled over a 33-year-old Blaine man who was arrested for probable cause second-degree DWI. The man’s ‘97 Toyota Rav4 was impounded for possible forfeiture pending the results of a urine test. In the meantime, he was cited for driving after license revocation and no insurance.

New Brighton

See you at the pool
A man familiar to police was reported walking into traffic before noon May 1 on Old Hwy. 8 near Hwy. 96, yelling and waving his arms. The 34-year-old man, clad only in swim trunks, ran, and the chase was on. Lights sirens, and an officer showing the man his Taser ended the incident. The 34-year-old local was cited for misdemeanor fleeing police on foot and was transported to the Ramsey County Jail.

A homeowner in the 500 block of 10th Avenue S.W. was awakened by untoward sounds coming from his garage April 25 around midnight. His wallet, containing credit cards and $40 in cash, which had been left in his unlocked vehicle in the unlocked garage, was gone. The victim was given crime prevention tips by police.

UPS delivered a package of vitamins to the front of a residence in the 600 block of Fourth Avenue N.W. late the morning of May 1. A thief picked it up. Shippers as well as law enforcement recommend you include instructions with your order asking the delivery person to leave it at your workplace, with a neighbor or by the back door if no one is home.

A woman parked and locked her vehicle in the 1100 block of Silver Lake Road on April 27 — forgetting about the sunroof. When she returned a couple of hours later, her computer, along with her tax return, birth certificate, passport and Social Security card, were gone.

North Oaks

No news is good news.

St. Anthony

Ready to roll
He thought he was ready to roll April 20 at Stinson Boulevard and Kenzie Terrace. Whoops — his license was suspended, his registration was expired and he had no proof of insurance. Now the  s20-year-old male has a citation for the three offenses.

Succumbing to the forces of darkness
During a power outage April 22 affecting much of New Brighton and St. Anthony, a 73-year-old shopper dropped her wallet in a store in the 3700 block of Silver Lake Road. A scramble in the dark occurred, but a thief got to the wallet first. The loss was $75 in cash and the suspect was seen leaving the lot. An investigation is underway.

Teen troubles
Four years too early, and that’s just for drinking the alcohol, not to mention stealing it. A 17-year-old boy was arrested April 22 outside a liquor store in the 2600 bock of 39th Avenue N.E. He faces misdemeanor charges of theft and underage possession of alcohol, and, in the meantime, faces Grandma.

Maybe her hero was the infamous Ma Barker, who, as one of her gang members said, “couldn’t plan breakfast.” The 16-year-old was arrested and cited at SAVHS on April 21 for possession of a replica “non-functioning” BB handgun and e-cigarettes, illegal on public school property in Hennepin County. She was released to the custody of school officials who planned to notify her parents.

Hmm... a 14-year-old had a $650 cell phone, but not for long, the teen lost track of it April 22 at SAVHS. She did have the serial number and an investigation is underway.


It’s grillin’ time
Sure, it’s stating the obvious, but maybe that’s why the thief was so quickly apprehended with a pair of Weber grills stolen from a Shoreview hardware store loading dock — after all, it’s grilling season! The Ramsey County Apprehension Unit, working with the U.S. Marshals Service, tracking a fugitive from South Dakota, conducted a traffic stop, finding the stolen Webers in the back of a minivan. The minivan driver, no stranger to law enforcement and really not very good at what he does, can add this arrest to his previous total of 64. A quick investigation led to the fugitive’s nearby apartment lot where deputies found several stolen autos with switched license plates. The investigation continues.

Vadnais Heights

Peace reigned throughout the land last week with no reports of stealing, drinking, fighting or off-road driving that would interest our readers.
