Falcon Heights


A good reason to lie


In the case of the 55-year-old man pulled over at Snelling and Larpenteur avenues for failing to stop at a stop sign, at least it seems like he had good reason to lie to the police — he didn’t want them to find out about that DWI warrant in Goodhue County! Alas, he was arrested and brought to the Ramsey County Jail for the moving violation, false information to police, driving with a revoked license and for the outstanding warrant.


Watch for walkers — a 72-year-old female driver was arrested and cited at Larpenteur Avenue and Pascal Street for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk on April 17.




A 35-year-old man lost a set of skis and boots valued at an exact $329 after someone got into his garage overnight April 16. Though he told police his garage was locked, the door can easily be pushed open, lock or no lock.


Property damage


Someone smashed out the back window of a vehicle overnight April 16 in the 1300 block of California Avenue. The 62-year-old man who owns the car said repairs totaled $250.




Someone slipped into a garage in the 1400 block of California Avenue and rode off with a bike valued at $300 on April 11. The thief found an opportunity when the 57-year-old owner of the bike left the garage door open while ferrying packages from a vehicle into the house.




Stolen/not stolen car


A 33-year-old woman who lives in the 1700 block of Walnut Street reported her car missing in a situation police called a “breach of trust.” A 33-year-old man was identified as the culprit. The woman tracked down the vehicle and retrieved it herself, and told police she could handle whatever comes next on her own.


Little Canada




A concerned citizen flagged down a passing squad car near the mini storage business at County Road D and Edgerton Street April 22 to report a suspicious bicyclist riding through the storage place. The person’s concern was well-placed — police stopped the bicyclist, who turned out to be a 40-year-old Little Canada man who had two warrants out for his arrest, both for probation violations linked to theft convictions. The man was transported to the county jail.


A concerned resident flagged down a sheriff’s deputy who was patrolling the 2600 block of Edgerton Street April 22 on an animal complaint. The worried homeowner said he saw a man walking through his backyard with two black plastic trash bags in his hands. Another worried homeowner called police about the same matter. Shortly thereafter, police tracked down a 20-year-old Lauderdale man with a history of burglary arrests. This time around, he was arrested for fleeing police. The man claimed he was out looking for his father, who had just been released from jail.


Wrong side of the tracks

A man out jogging on the railroad tracks with his dog near the 3100 block of Country Drive April 20 managed to receive two written warnings from police: One for trespassing on the tracks, the other for his unleashed dog.




A salon in the 4900 block of Rice Street reported a burglary that happened overnight April 23. Someone got into the business without forced entry, pried open a cash box and took an undetermined amount of cash. 


A resident who lives in the manufactured housing community near the 2400 block of Rice Street emailed in to police a report of a burglary that happened overnight April 26. The resident told police someone entered his three-season porch and stole a $500 bike, tools, a phone charger and change from a vehicle parked nearby. The missing items were worth $1,300.

Someone tried to break into a house in the 100 block of Big Circle Drive April 26 — damage on a door showed as much — but they weren’t able to get in.
