Wayward snapping turtles in Arden Hills


 

Arden Hills

Wayward snapping turtles

Just after 4 p.m. on May 29 a call came in regarding a wayward snapping turtle stuck in the middle of the road blocking traffic in the 1900 block of County Road I; when deputies showed up the reptile had moved on. Some 45 minutes later, a call came from the 3200 block of Katie Lane regarding another snapping turtle who’d nested in an egress window and was now trapped in a fenced-in yard. An animal control officer moved that turtle to a nearby pond.

 

Wayard stolen car

Deputies responded to a situation in the early morning hours of May 24 in which a car stolen out of White Bear Lake was driven into a parking lot in the 4300 block of West Round Lake Road, hit another car and was abandoned.

No news is good news.

Criminal sexual conduct

A 25-year-old woman told police May 15 she was sexually assaulted by a 26-year-old male acquaintance. The case was turned over to the Ramsey County Attorney for a charge of first-degree felony criminal sexual conduct.

 

Future past

A 60-year-old woman called the police May 18 to say that she believed she’d received a number of text messages from her brother, a 48-year-old man, who she had an order of protection against. Police checked out the messages, and it turned out they’d been sent prior to the order of protection being served.

 

Really shouldn’t be driving

A 36-year-old man stopped May 19 at Walnut and Spring streets was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for driving on a canceled license, no proof of insurance and two Ramsey County DWI warrants.

 

Little Canada

Burglary

A 45-year-old man told police May 25 that someone had crawled into his place in the 2400 block of Rice Street through an unlocked back window sometime overnight and stolen his Xbox One, two controllers and battery packs all worth $650, as well as his PS4 console, which was worth $260.

 

Clean thieves

At 4 a.m. on May 23, two men in a red car pulled up to the car wash in the first block of Demont Avenue and had their car washed; they also either picked the lock or had a key to open the cashbox on a coin-operated vacuum machine and stole roughly $300 from it, while also causing $250 worth of damage to the machine.

 

More snapping 

turtle action

An animal control officer responded to the 100 block of Canabury Court the morning of May 25 on a report of a large snapping turtle on a patio, with curious young children around. The reptile was dropped off at Round Lake.

 

Mounds View

Peacemaker

An officer headed to the 2400 block of County Road I the evening of May 21, and, to quote the police report, “broke up a juvenile fight before it began.”

 

Unwanted guests

Officers responded to a report of unwanted guests/persons at an apartment in the 5400 block of Jackson Drive on May 26. Two people were arguing loudly, neither lived at the place, so both were taken elsewhere.

 

Wrong way DWI

An officer stopped a car driving the wrong way on Interstate 35W near County Road H just after bar close on May 21 and arrested its driver, a 25-year-old Anoka man, for second-degree DWI after he blew a .18 blood alcohol concentration.

 

New Brighton

Burglary

A 46-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman told police May 28 that that day someone had cut a screen on a window at their home in the 200 block of Second Avenue SE, entered the home and stole $200 in cash and two laptops.

 

Pool sharks

Just before midnight on May 27 a person who lives in the 2000 block of Mounds Avenue saw three boys running from yard to yard stealing things, as reported to police. One of the items was an inflatable pool belonging to a 36-year-old woman — the neighbor saw the kids take it, and yelled at them as they fled.

 

Theft

A 65-year-old woman told police May 28 that she’d been unloading items into her daughter’s house that day in the 3000 block of Pecks Woods Turn, leaving the door to her car open in the process. Later, she noticed her iPad, checkbooks and a calendar were missing from the car.

 

Shoreview

It was a quiet week.

 

St. Anthony

Arrest

A woman picked up by police May 15 in the 4000 block of Foss Road was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for three warrants: an Anoka County warrant for fifth-degree drug possession and two Hennepin County warrants for fifth-degree possession warrant and DWI.

Police arrested and cited a 39-year-old woman May 19 at Silver Lake Road and St. Anthony Boulevard for giving false information to police, driving with a revoked license, no proof of insurance and failure to yield right-of-way.

 

DWI accident

Police headed to an accident with injuries May 19 at 29th Avenue and Highway 88. One of the drivers, a 21-year-old man, refused testing and was taken to the hospital for a warrant-authorized blood test, then to the Hennepin County Jail to be booked for fourth-degree DWI. The man will also be charged with felony criminal vehicular operation due to the extent of injuries to the other driver.

 

Domestic assault

A 12-year-old boy was booked at the Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Facility and charged with fifth-degree domestic assault May 15 for an attack that sent his 38-year-old mother to the hospital.

 

Eggs

A 54-year-old woman who lives in the 3200 block of 32nd Avenue told police May 19 that her home had been egged.

 

Half-way crook?

The daughter of an 89-year-old woman told police May 18 that her mother’s wedding ring and a pair of earings went missing from her apartment at a senior residence located in the 3700 block of Chandler Drive while she was recently hospitalized. Management questioned some 30 employees about the likely theft, and the ring was anonymously returned, though the earings are still missing.

 

Hit and run

Officers responded May 14 to a report of a hit-and-run accident in the area of Silver Lake Road and 29th Avenue. They tracked down the vehicle that fled, and arrested and cited its 42-year-old male driver for hit-and-run, no proof of insurance, having no insurance and violating his instruction permit.

 

Known thief

Staff at the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road told police about a May 17 theft carried out by a 69-year-old man who walked out of the store with nearly $400 worth of merchandise without paying for it. Because the man had been warned about trespassing at the store recently, police sent him citations for trespassing and misdemeanor theft.

 

Meth overdose

Police headed to the parking lot of the Anytime Fitness in the 2700 block of 39th Avenue on a report of a possible overdose and a 20-year-old man was taken to the hospital for treatment. Officers found a large brick of methamphetamine in the man’s backpack and he faces charges of fifth-degree drug possession.

 

Theft

A 45-year-old woman bought some items from Sally’s Beauty Supply in the 2700 block of 39th Avenue May 20 but had concealed $8.58 worth of stuff in her purse. She was seen doing so on security footage, and after giving up the stolen items, was charged with misdemeanor theft.
