Bike theft season kicks off in Lauderdale

Arrests, Thefts and more around Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Little Canada, and Roseville - Roseville Review police reports May 5, 2015.

Falcon Heights

Arrests
A cracked windshield got the driver stopped April 16 in the 1400 block of Larpenteur Avenue and the revoked license got the 27-year-old man arrested.

A woman pulled over for driving with a suspended license at Hamline and Larpenteur avenues dug the hole a little deeper April 17 when she showed the officer an insurance card that proved to be fake. She was advised she would be charged by formal complaint.

A woman who had no insurance let a man who had a canceled license drive her car April 18. The woman, 47, was charged with allowing the illegal operation of a vehicle and the man, 44, was arrested for driving after license cancellation.

Also missing
The victim of an Iowa Avenue burglary reported in this space last week took a closer look at his inventory and realized a laptop computer and a cased iPad had also gone missing. The additional items were valued at $3,500. An investigation continues.

Hanging around
It’s illegal to drive with stuff hanging from your rear view mirror—fuzzy dice, jewelry, garters, handicap parking permits, anything, really. Hanging stuff got the 24-year-old man stopped at Snelling and Hoyt avenues on April 16 where he was also arrested for driving after license suspension and no insurance.

Street fight
Police responded to an April 19 report of a man and a girl fighting in the street at Snelling and Hoyt avenues. Both participants said it was just an argument, but witnesses claimed the 16-year had been assaulted. That accusation set the 20-year-old off and he became threatening to officers and witnesses, according to a police report. The man was charged with misdemeanor assault and booked at the jail. The girl was placed in a shelter and Ramsey County Child Protection Services was advised.

Lauderdale

Theft
The opening bell for bike theft season rang April 15 in the 1900 block of Malvern Street. A girl’s bike had been ridden to the scene of the crime and left there, unlocked, by her brother.

Was it an interrupted thief’s intent to steal the wheels off of a parked vehicle, or just a weird lug nut collector? All 30 lug nuts were taken and just two, along with the wheels, remained on a vehicle April 15 in the 1900 block of Malvern Street.

Up to old tricks
A 21-year-old man’s next stop was the Ramsey County Jail after a felony arrest warrant for a fifth-degree controlled substance violation followed him to an address on Walnut Street. He also faces a new felony charge after being found in possession of a fifth-degree controlled substance on April 15.

Little Canada

Disorderly conduct
A disruptive youth acted out his issues recently at Capitol View alternative learning center by throwing his tray of food against a wall. The 16-year-old Woodbury boy was transported to the Ramsey County Juvenile Detention Center on a disorderly conduct charge.

Throw pillows
For the fifth consecutive day her son refused to go to Roseville Middle School, and Mom called 911. Mom said she was in fear of the 14-year-old, who had thrown pillows at her, but was also afraid the youth would hurt his 16-year-old brother who he was demanding money from. The younger boy, already on probation, was transported to the JDC on a fifth-degree domestic assault charge.

Roseville

Freeway adventure
At a time when licensed adults are banging into each other on the roadways on a fairly regular basis, an unbelted, pajama-clad eight-year-old, barely able to see over the steering wheel of a 23-year-old Buick Roadmaster let alone reach the pedals, negotiated the Metro area freeway system in pre-rush hour traffic for nearly a half-hour April 28 with no injuries, to anyone. The boy, who looks for opportunities to make tracks, had been gone from his St. Paul foster home overnight on foot but was spotted behind the wheel near I-35E and Hwy. 36 in Roseville. Nine-one-one calls began to come in fast and furious and the authorities ended the adventure by blocking the Buick, which had exited on Hwy. 10, in a Mounds View driveway at Woodcrest Drive and Eastwood Road. The passengers, a five-year-old girl and her three-year-old brother who are fellow residents at the foster home, were also unbelted.
