Mail thefts spike during tax season


The red Toyota RAV4 suspect vehicle that authorities believe was used to commit mail theft in Roseville and Woodbury. A homeowner living on Dunlap Circle in Roseville sent this image recorded by her home surveillance camera to police. St. Paul Police pulled the same vehicle over in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood and arrested two St. Paul men early Friday, Feb. 7.

Local police departments are asking residents to keep a close eye on their mailboxes following an increase in mail theft in Roseville and other communities across the metro. With tax season under way, some thieves have been rifling through people’s mailboxes searching for documents containing personal information that can be used to commit identity theft.   
“We’ve noticed an uptick, which typically starts around the holidays, but really starts fast and furious in January when employers send out W2’s and 1099’s,” Roseville Police Lt. Lorne Rosand said.

Thanks to the family of former West St. Paul Firefighter Charlie Hermann, the South Metro Fire Department will have a better chance of saving lives from both fire and water.
Hermann, now deceased, served on the West St. Paul Fire Department from May 1953 to April 1977, but his legacy in the department will be remembered well into the future thanks to his $25,000 bequeathment.
According to Don Axtman, son of Charlie’s wife, Kay, Charlie was adamant the $25,000 donation should benefit the firefighters who comprise the department. In keeping with his wishes, department administrators decided to divide the donation into ten scholarships of $2,500 that firefighters can apply for on a yearly basis.

SSP readies for parks bonding referendum

After nine years of waiting, including two years of studies, surveys, open houses and informational videos, South St. Paul is putting its case for $10 million in bonding for parks and recreation improvements to the final test.
South St. Paul will hold a public referendum Tuesday, Feb. 11, to let residents vote whether the city should issue $10.3 million in bonding to complete the long-delayed plans for Kaposia Landing and McMorrow Field as well as facility improvements at Wakota Arena. A passing vote Feb. 11 would give the city its first successful parks referendum since 1990; a referendum to raise funds for South St. Paul’s outdoor pools was voted down in 2001, leading to the closure of McLaine Pool at Lorraine Park.
