Arden Hills

Burglary/domestic assault

A 23-year-old Minneapolis man broke into his ex-girlfriend’s house in the early morning hours of Sept. 26 by pushing in a bedroom window. He asked the woman for a ride, and when she refused, he assaulted her, slapping her and pulling her hair. The man left the house but police arrested him in the area. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for burglary and first-degree felony assault.

 

Gun

Suspicious parking

The driver of a sedan parked in the lot of Pot O’ Gold Bingo Hall in the 3700 block of Connelly Avenue in the morning hours of Sept. 24 was issued a citation after sitting in the parking lot of the business for more than half an hour. The bingo hall was not open at the time.

Falcon Heights

Arrest

Police stopped a 33-year-old man Sept. 13 at Larpenteur and Snelling avenues and arrested and cited him for giving false information to police and for driving with a cancelled license.

Bad driving

Police received a report of a car honking and driving into oncoming traffic Sept. 15 in the area of Snelling and Larpenteur avenues but officers checked it out and didn’t find anything.

Psyche out

Police went to stop a car Sept. 14 at Larpenteur and Hamline avenues because the registered owner of the car has a revoked driver’s license. Upon stopping the vehicle, officers found the driver wasn’t the owner, so he was sent on his way.


 

Lauderdale

Criminal sexual conduct

A 30-year-old woman called police Sept. 16 to report she had been sexually assaulted by a male acquaintance. The man was still at the scene when police arrived, and was identified as a 40-year-old. Police interviewed the man and woman; the man was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for third-degree felony criminal sexual conduct.

 

Drag racing

Police responded to the area of Highway 280 and Larpenteur Avenue on a report of drag racing Sept. 16. Officers arrived and saw a car driving very fast — when they attempted to stop it, it started going even faster. The driver of the car nearly crashed it before the person stopped the car in a parking lot and ran off. Roseville police helped set up a perimeter around the area but they did not find the driver. Later, a woman and a man walked by the car in question; officers identified the woman as the lessee of the car and papers in the car belonged to the man. Both said they weren’t in the car during the chase, and told police the name of the driver. The car was impounded and police are investigating.

Burglary

A 66-year-old woman told police Sept. 21 that someone broke into her apartment storage unit in the 100 block of Little Canada Road and stole $2,100 worth of camping equipment, including a tent and sleeping bags, boots, a cooler, flashlights and lanterns, as well as a couple suitcases. 

Two automotive businesses located in the 100 block of Ryan Drive were broken into as reported Sept. 23 — employees found open garage doors when they arrived at work. The burglar, or more likely, burglars, stole three vehicles: a 1994 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, a 1970 Chevy Chevelle and a 2002 Honda motorcycle. Police have VIN and license plate numbers for the vehicles and are waiting to look at security footage.

 

Don’t leave $2,000 in the car

A 38-year-old man told police Sept. 25 that someone had stolen $2,000 cash from a computer bag that had been in his unlocked car parked in the 2400 block of Rice Street. The theft was caught on a neighbor’s security camera, and the thief is a man.

 

Fight

Staff at Roseville Area Middle School, located in the first block of County Road B2 E., reported a fight that had happened Sept. 19. Staff were unaware of it until video of it appeared on Snapchat — two 13-year-olds fought in the clip posted on the social media network. Neither of the students needed medical attention; school staff reported it to police so it would be documented.

 

Stolen checks

Employees at a business located in the 100 block of County Road C came in on Sept. 18 and noticed things were slightly out of sort — desk drawers were open that usually would be shut and locked. Later, someone tried to pass off a forged check from the business at the bank. The business reported the incident Sept. 21, changed its locks and froze its bank accounts. Police are investigating.

Police headed to the Jimmy John’s in the 500 block of Fifth Avenue NW Sept. 24 on a report of someone trying to pass off a counterfeit $100 bill.
