Those pesky car lights in Lauderdale

Arrests, Thefts and more around Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Little Canada, and Roseville - Roseville Review police reports March 22, 2016.

 

Falcon Heights

 

Arrest

Even if it wasn’t a date before, after their trip to the Ramsey County Jail together on March 1, it might as well have been. The woman — 20 years old and in possession of methamphetamine — was arrested for felony fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance. The guy — 30 years old and driving rather illegally — was stopped along with his companion at Fairview and Roselawn avenues and arrested on an outstanding Ramsey County warrant for fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, as well as for giving false information to police, driving with a revoked license, having no proof of insurance and for having no insurance.

 

A 31-year-old man was arrested and cited for driving after having his license was revoked and for no proof of insurance March 5 at Snelling and Garden avenues. His 19-year-old female passenger was arrested and cited for minor consumption. 

 

Theft

At least there wasn’t any damage — a 56-year-old man told police March 3 that someone broke into his car in the 1500 block of Larpenteur Avenue and snatched a television and some compact discs, valued at roughly $120. He told police that the car was locked but the thief didn’t have to bust it up to get in.

 

Lauderdale

 

Issues with lights

A 22-year-old man was arrested and cited for driving after license revocation, no proof of insurance and failure to transfer the car’s title after 10 days Feb. 29. Police also cited him for faulty brake lights, the likely cause of his traffic stop at Larpenteur Avenue and Highway 280, in the first place.

 

This time, it was the 40-year-old man’s failure to signal a lane change — those pesky car lights! The man, stopped at Larpenteur Avenue and Malvern Street March 4, was arrested and cited for that revoked license he continued to try to use and having no proof of insurance. He was ticketed for not signaling that lane change, as well.

 

Little Canada

 

Arrest

Police went looking for a 23-year-old man March 10 after his mother called police to report he’d locked her out of their apartment. Police came but the man had fled, only to come back a bit later, with police still waiting. The man got into a family vehicle parked outside and deputies moved in to arrest him. He wouldn’t exit the car so police went in a back door of the vehicle and held him in place with a Taser until more help arrived. The 23-year-old wasn’t Tased but his past caught up with him; he was arrested on outstanding warrants for DWI, disturbing the peace and contempt of court.

 

Assault

A 17-year-old male was standing up for his sister against the taunts of a 16-year-old boy from White Bear Lake and another 17-year-old from Little Canada March 11 in the 200 block of Centerville Road when the two attacked him. The kids who attacked the 17-year-old are the sister’s “friends,” and while there were no serious injuries in the incident, the grandmother of the victim wants to press charges against the attackers, likely fifth-degree misdemeanor assault.

 

Domestic Assault

A 46-year-old woman was arrested for fifth-degree assault, domestic assault and disorderly conduct for allegedly hitting her 17-year-old stepdaughter in the head multiple times because she was not getting ready fast enough on March 13. The father of the victim doesn’t want to press charges, though he wants the woman to get help.

Lights again

In an apparent effort to shake off the deputy who was following him, a 33-year-old made a series of quick turns while speeding March 9 in the area of Centerville and Eli roads. When deputies finally pulled him over for speeding and the failure to signal those turns — pesky lights! — it turns out the man was driving on a revoked license and had no insurance. He was arrested and cited for all of the above.
