Cheating at Yu-Gi-Oh
Cheating at Yu-Gi-Oh
A backpack containing $600 worth of Yu-Gi-Oh cards went missing from a vehicle April 25 in the parking lot of the big-box store in the 800 block of County Road E in Vadnais Heights. In this Japanese trading card game, two players are supposed to duel each other using a variety of Monster, Spell, and Trap Cards to defeat their opponent’s monsters and be the first to drop the other’s Life Points to 0. In this case, game over.

Better safe than sorry

• A Lululemon bag, (Lululemon, of the see-thru yoga pants fame), a pair of Ralph Lauren pants and a gold and ruby ring, total value of $875, went missing following a car break-in in the 2200 block of County Hwy. 10 overnight April 20.

Their luck ran out
• A Horseshoe Drive theft victim is fighting back electronically, and seems to be getting the upper hand. A video clearly shows four burglary suspects using the garage keypad to enable access to the home on April 24. An ADT sensor on the home’s wine cellar features the foursome lightening the inventory by 20 bottles. Another piece of video features a male walking into camera range carrying a large jar of coins. That footage went to the victim’s cell phone and was turned over to investigators. The last video shows a suspect reaching for the camera. One suspect, an acquaintance of the victim’s son, had stayed at the home off and on and his particulars, along with a text message to the victim’s son that read, “I knows (SIC) you know what I did,” were sent to authorities. Deputies are looking for the 18-year-old who has no permanent address. Roseville Area High School officials are assisting in the identification of the other three males.
• Known long ago as the “home for unwed mothers,” The Home of the Good Shepherd, now abandoned, is most frequently used as a training location for K-9 officers and their partners as well as the county SWAT team. It’s also fertile territory for metal scrappers, but so far the good guys and the bad guys haven’t crossed paths. Deputy eyebrows were raised April 20 however, when, responding to a recent rash of metal fixture thefts, they spoke to a witness who reported seeing a man exiting a security vehicle with a pair of bolt cutters.
They’ll steal anything dept.
• A prowler broke the window of a vehicle at the Rice Creek dog park at Lexington Avenue and Emil Street April 21, making off with two knotted bags of dog bombs.
Criminal sexual conduct
• “If you’d rather meet people in real life than online then Meetup is for you.” Or maybe not. The over-the-phone dating service even encourages you to bring friends. A 15-year-old Vadnais Heights girl and two friends were picked up by two men March 8 on Belland Avenue, told they were going to Mahtomedi, and wound up at a house in Plymouth where the two men were joined by five friends. After episodes of drinking, nudity and non-consensual sex, the juvenile and her friends were returned to the Belland Avenue location. The teen told Ramsey County deputies later that she had been raped. An investigation by Plymouth Police continues.
