Roseville/Bulletin police reports • Published October 23, 2017

Arden Hills


A 39-year-old Coon Rapids woman assaulted a 37-year-old woman from Coon Rapids at the Big Ten Supper Club in the 4700 block of Highway 10 Oct. 15. The younger woman was with the older woman’s ex-boyfriend. The 39-year-old woman followed them at the restaurant, screaming at them. She assaulted the man, and when he got away, she went after the woman. The 39-year-old then drove off. She was picked up later by Coon Rapids police; she was taken to the hospital with self-inflicted knife wounds and charged with fifth-degree assault.


DWI at the DMV

Police arrested a 36-year-old Foreston man Oct. 17 after he was reported to be driving erratically and going faster than 50 miles an hour on the testing course at the Arden Hills DMV in the 5400 block of County Road I; he also went the wrong way on a one-way street. The man refused a breath test and was wanted in Blaine for a hit and run accident. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for second-degree DWI and DWI test refusal.


Shoe fraud

A 19-year-old Brooklyn Center man attempted to buy three pairs of shoes Oct. 14 with counterfeit bills from a teen who was selling the kicks on Facebook. The two had met up in the 1900 block of Banyan Street and when the seller realized the money was fake, the 19-year-old took off with the sneakers. Police tracked him down and the city attorney might press charges.


Falcon Heights

Gas theft interrupted

A woman who’d previously stolen gas from the gas station in the 1600 block of Snelling Avenue was seen pumping petrol there Oct. 2. A clerk recognized the woman and shut off the pump with only $3.73 worth of fuel in the thief’s tank — the woman took off but the employee jotted down the woman’s license plate number. Police have a possible suspect, a 25-year-old woman.


Laundry list of trouble

A 40-year-old woman was arrested after a car chase Oct. 7 at Snelling and Roselawn avenues. She was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for felony fleeing police in a motor vehicle, false information to police, driving with a suspended license, no proof of insurance and for displaying tabs that belong to another vehicle. Additionally, she had a Ramsey County warrant out for credit card fraud, and three warrants out of Georgia: a DeKalb County warrant for theft/failure to appear in court; a Cobb County warrant for credit card fraud; and a Gwinnet County warrant for assault/probation violation.


Terroristic threats

A 26-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man told police they’d been robbed Oct. 4 in Minneapolis. As they returned to their Falcon Heights apartment later that day, one of the people who had robbed them was sitting in a car in the apartment parking lot. The man and woman confronted the man, who had a handgun. The man and woman got out of there and called the police, who came and arrested the man with the gun. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for felony terroristic threats; police impounded and searched his car and found a handgun, ammo and drugs. He was additionally charged with felony fifth-degree possession of controlled substances — oxycodone and marijuana — and felony second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon.


Time share fraud

A 68-year-old woman told police Oct. 3 she’d transferred $9,433 to a third party for fees and taxes in order to sell her time share, and the whole thing was bogus. Police are investigating.



Two birds ...

A 46-year-old man told police Oct. 5 that someone broke into his garage and stole his van keys. The burglar then stole the $1,500 Ford van which was parked outside in the 1900 block of Walnut Street. In the back of the van was a $30,000 racing motorcycle, $5,000 worth of motrocycle clothing and $1,000 worth of tools. Police found possible DNA evidence at the scene.


Watch the bus arm

A 77-year-old woman was arrested and cited Oct. 5 at Larpenteur Avenue and Eustis Street for a school bus arm violation.


Little Canada


Police arrested a 43-year-old woman Oct. 16 after she threatened her 50-year-old ex-husband with a butcher knife outside an apartment building. The man flagged down police and told them he’d been threatened, but not harmed. The woman was arrested and booked at the Ramsey County Jail for making terroristic threats and assault with a dangerous weapon.



A string of burglaries took place through the first weeks of October in the 300 and 400 block of Labore Road. In one Oct. 14 incident in the 400 block, a trailer containing $15,000 worth of construction tools was stolen from a garage, along with tents, fishing gear, rims for a Toyota and four bikes. In an Oct. 15 incident in the 300 block, a $500 electric scooter and 10-20 pairs of shoes were stolen from another garage. Police are investigating and think the burglaries may be linked, but they don’t have substantial suspect information.



A 40-year-old St. Paul man was seriously injured Oct. 11 trying to stop the theft of his car from outside the hobby shop in the first block of Minnesota Avenue. The man was injured so badly he couldn’t remember what happened; witnesses told police he was seen hanging onto his car as it was being stolen, trying to get the thief out of the driver’s seat, but then fell off. On Oct. 18, a deputy on patrol in the same neighborhood checked out a parked suspicious vehicle and it turned out to be the man’s car.



An employee at a bakery in the 2900 block of Rice Street told police she checked out a suspicious car parked near the business early in the morning of Oct. 11. It had been sitting there for 45 minutes running with its lights off. When she walked by the car, the person inside it revved the car’s engine, startling her. Police came to check things out but the car was gone; they have a description of the vehicle and its license plate number.


Property damage

Police were called to the 100 block of Demont Avenue the night of Oct. 16 because someone had seen a woman damaging a car with a rock. Police found the woman, a 38-year-old from South St. Paul, asleep in the car. The woman told police she was someone else, said she didn’t know whose car she was sleeping in and said she didn’t know where she was. Police used her fingerprints to identify her; she was arrested for giving false information to police.


New Brighton

Armed robbery

The night of Oct. 12 two armed men robbed the McDonald’s in the 700 block of Long Lake Road. They forced employees into the back room and stole money from the safe and registers — anywhere between $2,000 and $3,500 worth of cash. Police set up a perimeter with K9 officers to try to track the men. The Roseville and St. Anthony police departments, along with the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office helped out, but the men got away. Police are investigating.



A 53-year-old man told police Oct. 14 someone had gotten into his shed in the 1900 block of Longview Drive and stole, among other things, his $400 pressure washer. The shed was probably unlocked.

Someone broke into an auto shop in the 2100 block of Silver Lake Road sometime over the weekend of Oct. 14 by backing their car into one of the shop’s overhead garage doors, breaking it off the tracks. The burglar then stole $150 from the cash register, and seemingly, nothing else.



Someone called police early in the morning of Oct. 15 to report that someone had hit their car in the 1100 block of Foxwood Court then kept driving. Police responded and found the suspect car, driven by a 37-year-old Mora woman. She’d been drinking and was arrested for third-degree DWI.

A 28-year-old Lauderdale woman was stopped on Interstate 35W and County Road E2 Oct. 15 and arrested for third-degree DWI. She admitted to drinking two beers.


Good luck with this one

A business located in the 1500 block of First Avenue NW reported Oct. 18 that a laptop had been stolen out of an unlocked office sometime between May and September 2017.


Lock the locker

A 20-year-old man told police his wallet had been stolen out of his unlocked gym locker at the LA Fitness in the 1100 block of Silver Lake Road Oct. 15. The thief tried to use one of his cards at McDonald’s in New Brighton. Police are investigating.


Stolen, then 

found plates

A 31-year-old woman told police Oct. 17 that her license plates had been stolen off her car as it was parked outside apartments in the 800 block of County Road D. Not more than 24 hours later, another car was spotted with one of her plates — the car actually had two different plates on it and both were listed as stolen. The plates were returned to their rightful owners.



Community center thefts

A string of thefts from lockers was reported at the Shoreview Community Center the afternoon of Oct. 15. A 47-year-old man told police someone stole his keys, driver’s license, cash and iPhone out of his gym bag; a 33-year-old woman lost her purse, containing her ID and four credit cards, which were used for $116 worth of fast food in New Brighton and $36 worth of burgers and gas in Roseville; a 40-year-old man said the lock on his locker had been cut but nothing was missing. Later that day a second wave of thefts were reported — another smartphone was stolen and a woman had her clothing moved. Community center management is trying to piece together a timeline to check security camera footage for a suspect.


Dog park thefts

A 38-year-old woman told police Oct. 12 that while her car was parked at the Rice Creek dog park in the 5900 block of Lexington Avenue somone broke into it and stole her purse. Just a half hour later, a 26-year-old woman from Blaine reported someone smashed a window on her car and stole her purse, while at the same park. 


Drunk and disorderly

A 34-year-old man was drunk and causing problems the night of Oct. 11 in the 3100 block of Rice Street so deputies took him to a hotel. Later that night, the man attempted to go home, so deputies picked him up and took him to detox.



A woman who works overnight told police the night of Oct. 12 she was getting repeated harassing and lewd phone calls over the business phone line. Police came to the business and a female deputy answered a call — it was the man who’d been harassing the woman — and told him he was speaking to a deputy and had to stop calling. He did, that night. The same deputy returned to the business the next day and the man had started calling again. Police are investigating.


Property damage

Someone went under the church van as it was parked outside the place of worship in the 3900 block of Victoria Street and cut its gas line, as reported Oct. 13.


Weed vape

A couple of 16-year-olds were caught Oct. 12 in the 3400 block of Lexington Avenue with a vaporizer filled with marijuana wax. The kids aren’t facing any charges.


St. Anthony


A 20-year-old New Brighton man drove up the back ramp of a trailer and struck traffic cones at Macalaster Drive and Silver Lane Oct. 4; someone called it in and said the man had probably been drinking. Police arrested the man and administered field sobriety tests. He blew a .000 blood alcohol concentration, so police got a warrant to conduct a blood test. The man was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for misdemeanor DUI and driving with a suspended license. Additional charges are pending the results of the blood test.


Lock your car

A 47-year-old man told police Oct. 5 he’s out $500 after someone rummaged through his unlocked car as it was parked outside apartments in the 2500 block of 38th Avenue.

A 30-year-old man told police Oct. 6 someone stole his $20 basketball out of his unlocked car as it was parked in the 2500 block of Silver Lane.


Parting gifts

Prior to quitting the dry cleaner in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road, a 17-year-old then-employee helped himself to $98 from the business. Another employee reported the theft Oct. 3. Police talked to the owner of the business who said he didn’t want to press charges, but just wanted the incident to be documented.

Management of the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road called police Oct. 5 to report an 18-year-old male employee who’d apparently taken $950 out of his cash register over a couple of shifts. He refused to talk to officers and was released, and told he should expect to be charged with misdemeanor theft. It’s unclear if the man still works for Cub.



A 29-year-old man told police Oct. 8 that someone smashed a window on his car and stole his wife’s purse containing cash, credit cards, her ID and keys, while the car was parked at Gross National Golf Club. The loss was $50; it’ll cost $300 to fix the window.
