Too drunk for pants in Little Canada

Arrests, Thefts and more around Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Little Canada, and Roseville - Roseville Review police reports March 15, 2016.


Falcon Heights


Orange is the new white lie

Assume police will see right through your ruse — a 20-year-old female didn’t, and after a traffic stop at Fulham Street and Roselawn Avenue Feb. 24, she was arrested and booked at the Ramsey County Jail for gross misdemeanor false information to police.



A 32-year-old woman was cited and arrested for owner-allowed illegal operation of a vehicle after the 38-year-old male driver of her car was pulled over and cited and arrested for driving after license revocation and not wearing his seatbelt Feb. 26 at Larpenteur and Hamline avenues.


Police recovered a stolen vehicle during a stop Feb. 26 in the 1800 block of Snelling Avenue. The driver, a 29-year-old man, was arrested and taken to the Ramsey County Jail for felony possession of a stolen vehicle and driving after license revocation. The 27-year-old female passenger in the car had a Dakota County warrant out for her arrest, so she got a trip to the jail as well.


Plate swap

A 70-year-old man reported someone had stolen his car’s license plates and replaced them with others Feb. 25 in the 1900 block of Tatum Street. Police entered his plates into a database as “stolen.”





The 66-year-old man driving with a revoked license found out the hard way that you still need current information on it when he was stopped Feb. 27 at Highway 280 and Larpenteur Avenue. He was charged with driving after revocation and for failure to change the address on the license; unsurprisingly, he was also promised an additional citation for no proof of insurance.


A 31-year-old female was arrested for felony possession of a fifth-degree controlled substance — methamphetamine — as well as for the misdemeanor possession of hypodermic needles. On top of that, she had a warrant out for her arrest in Dakota County. She was taken to the Ramsey County Jail.



The credit card fraudsters racked up $83.74 in charges at the BP station on Larpenteur Avenue before the 55-year-old male owner of the cards could report the transactions to police on Feb. 22.


Little Canada



Someone smashed in the front window of a business in the 3000 block of Centerville Road overnight into March 6 and stole $1,000 worth of petty cash from a cabinet. The damage to the window isn’t petty — it’ll cost $750 to fix. Police are investigating.

Disorderly conduct

A man awoke at his home in the 2400 block of Rice Street March 3 to his 49-year-old uncle banging on the window. The man opened the window to tell his uncle to bug off when the uncle hit him in the face with a pole. The man wasn’t injured and the uncle ran off. Police went to the 49-year-old’s home but didn’t find him; after the police left the nephew’s home, uncle came back and smashed out a window. The raging relative was mailed citations for fifth-degree assault, disorderly conduct and misdemeanor damage to property.


Too drunk for pants

Employees at Flameburger in the 2500 block of Rice Street called police to report an obviously intoxicated customer who had left and gotten into his car in the early morning of March 6. Police responded and found the man, a 47-year-old from St. Paul, had only driven a couple of yards into the neighboring Papa Murphy’s parking lot. Police observed the man get out of his car — his pants were down — then get back into it, reversing in a herky-jerk manner out of a parking spot. Police finally stopped the man, who, upon exiting the car again, had apparently wet his pants. He admitted to drinking all night, was arrested and charged with third-degree DWI.
