At the dog park, but where’s the dog?
Bulletin Area police reports week of June 18, 2014 for Arden Hills, Mounds View, New Brighton, North Oaks, St. Anthony, Shoreview and Vadnais Heights
Deputies stopped a man June 9 who looked like he was used to bad news and was about to get more. He was. The 34-year-old drifter with no permanent address had been ringing doorbells on Fairview Avenue and on Noble Road after 9:30 p.m. June 9, looking for work as an “aquatic landscaper.” That resulted in several 911 calls from residents who said the suspect showed signs of being under the influence. He was booked at the jail on a charge of soliciting without a permit.
Chest-bumped at the trailer park
Unpleasantness occurred at the trailer park on Glenhaven Lane when the babysitter refused to take care of the baby until Mom paid her the $35 she owed for the last time she sat. Mom shoved and chest-bumped the sitter and the sitter called 911. Mom, 27, was cited for assault and disorderly conduct.
Not a career move
It was all in a night’s work for the Minneapolis man who wreaked havoc in the back seat of a squad car May 31 at County Road I and County Hwy. 10.

In trouble at nine
A young student at the Bridges School was told he had to share an iPad with a classmate May 20 because there were just not enough iPads to go around.

In the night they come

At the dog park, but where’s the dog?
A woman sitting in her vehicle at 4 a.m. in the Rice Creek Regional Trail dog park on Lexington Avenue drew a deputy’s interest because of the late hour and he fact that she had no dog. She told the deputy she “was taking a break.” “From what?” the deputy asked the unemployed 28-year-old with no permanent address. The suspect kept refusing to step out of the locked vehicle until the deputy offered to break the window. She finally complied, was interviewed and arrested on charges of driving after license revocation, possession of drug paraphernalia and obstructing the legal process. The suspect, who lives in her vehicle, was quickly off to a more structured environment, the Ramsey County Jail regarding an Anoka County warrant issued for her arrest.
