Falcon Heights

No news is good news.





Police stopped a 53-year-old Roseville man Oct. 28 on Larpenteur Avenue at Highway 280 on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. The man refused a breath test so he was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for gross misdemeanor DWI refuse to submit to a chemical test and fourth-degree DWI.


Hit with a shovel

A 50-year-old man who lives in the 2300 block of Larpenteur Avenue told police Oct. 23 that his 69-year-old neighbor had hit him in the chest with a shovel. Police questioned both men, and in the end the older man was arrested and released with a citation for fifth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.


Little Canada

Bar brothers bother

An employee at a bar in the 2500 block of Rice Street called the police around 1 a.m. on Nov. 1 to report that a 30-year-old St. Paul man who’d been kicked out the bar was in the parking lot fighting with people. He’d also made threats to “shoot up the place.” The man’s brother, a 28-year-old from Maplewood, had also shown up and started fighting with bar staffers. Both men were arrested for disorderly conduct and assault and were booked at the Ramsey County Jail.



A 21-year-old man called the police the morning of Oct. 30 to report a burglary at his home in the 400 block of Labore Road. 


Not so neighborly

A gathering at an apartment the night of Oct. 30 in the 400 block of Little Canada Road turned sour, according to a 58-year-old man who called the police. The man said a neighbor had been invited over, but the man was asked to leave after he got too drunk; the 58-year-old said the man returned later and was pounding on the apartment door, trying to get back in. The man had gone by the time the cops showed up.


Stolen car?

A 27-year-old woman called the police an hour after bar close from the 2500 block of Rice Street to say her car had been stolen while she was in a nearby bar. The woman called back shortly thereafter to say the car had been found in a business parking lot across the street from the bar. Its status as stolen was revoked.



Mounds View

Fleeing the police

Officers attempted to stop a vehicle in the 5200 block of Program Avenue the night of Oct. 28 but the car fled. The cops followed, eventually heading southbound on Interstate 35W around County Road E2, where the car pulled over. Officers arrested the driver of the car, a 24-year-old Mendota Heights woman, for fleeing police in a motor vehicle.


Wandering man

A homeowner called the police just after 4 a.m. Oct. 29 from the 2900 block of Dickens Lane to report a man on their deck that they didn’t recognize. Police came and found the man, who said he was lost.


What a zoo

Calls to the police over animals abounded in late October in Mounds View. Someone called the cops on a barking dog in the 2100 block of Hillview Road just before noon on Oct. 28. Later that afternoon, an officer headed to the 2700 block of Woodcrest on a report of an injured deer; “Officer dispatched the deer,” said the police report. That evening a dog was reported as barking in the 2100 block of Hillview Road, again. Come the afternoon of Oct. 29, an officer checked on a dog left outside on a short leash in the 8200 block of Red Oak Drive. The evening of Oct. 31 someone reported a “dog at large” in the 7900 block of Greenwood Drive, and the evening of Nov. 1 officers headed to check out an animal complaint in the 5100 block of Edgewood Drive. The caller said she’d found an injured cat in her yard.


New Brighton

Lost and found

Police headed to the 3500 block of Tiffany Lane the morning of Nov. 3 on a report of a car stolen out of a home’s driveway. The car was later recovered.



St. Anthony

Before you know they’re missing

The Blaine Police Department called management at the Equinox Apartments, which are located in the 2500 block of Silver Lane, on Oct. 23 to let them know officers had recovered a U-Haul trailer that contained appliances. Per the paperwork with said appliances, they belonged to the apartment complex, though the managers said they were unaware of the theft prior to police calling.


Empty wallet

A 32-year-old man came into the police station Oct. 24 to report he’d lost his wallet or it’d been stolen. The billfold eventually turned up with its cards still inside, though the $500 cash that had been inside was missing.



A 21-year-old man told police Oct. 22 that his ex-girlfriend, also 21, had made 20 unauthorized charges on his bank card to the tune of $398.78. The man turned over some bank statements as proof and the case is pending more investigation.


Kicked car

A 35-year-old man told police Oct. 26 he’d been the target of a road rage incident in the 3200 block of Stinson Boulevard that same day — the driver of another car had approached the man’s car and kicked the door while he was inside it. The 35-year-old left the area after, later to discover a dent in his door that’ll likely cost $200 to fix. The kicker’s license plate number was turned over to police.


Mail theft

A 39-year-old woman told police Oct. 28 that someone had opened her locked mailbox located in the 3400 block of Silver Lane and opened two envelopes, taking a letter that was inside one of them.
