Two arrests made; charges likely, police say
Maplewood detectives have been sifting through two large cardboard boxes of mail addressed to homes in several cities, a process that may lead to criminal charges for two residents of St. Paul’s East Side.
The Maplewood Police Department responded to a report of two people who were trying to cash a fraudulent check on Feb. 14 at a bank on the 2900 block of White Bear Avenue, according to a police statement.

Chuck Repke recalled a time years back when a car slammed into the side of a hair salon at the corner of White Bear and Case avenues.
It struck the building so hard that not only was the exterior wall of the building damaged, but the interior walls were also askew.
The incident happened when a southbound car on White Bear Avenue struck a vehicle exiting Ames Place, Repke said.
About 10,000 baby boomers retire every day. With the aging population, many people are thinking of estate planning. The best course if you want a will or estate plan is to hire an experienced local attorney. You should steer clear of “living trust mills,” which hold themselves out as estate planning specialists but churn out boilerplate documents for a high fee, all to get their foot in the door to sell you annuities or insurance products later on.
Frequently in juvenile court we judges see cases of vandalism from minor egg-throwing to major wanton acts of property destruction in the tens of thousands of dollars. I have never been able to understand the mindset of the juveniles involved in such incidents. Sometimes the juveniles explain that they didn’t plan on doing any damage and that it was their friends that goaded them into participating, i.e. peer pressure. Surveys have shown that the typical vandal is a young male middle school student acting in a small group.
