Little Canada

Crime of opportunity

New Brighton

Robbed while buying weed

A 24-year-old man ran to the liquor store in the 1000 block of Silver Lake Road the night of April 7 after he’d been robbed during a drug deal. The man told police that he’d gotten into the back seat of a car on a service road off Interstate 694 that night to buy some marijuana. A person in the passenger seat pulled a gun on the man and stole his iPhone 6 and $100; the man got out of the car and ran to the liquor store.

 

Storytime theft

A 58-year-old man caught red-handed shoplifting $105.05 worth of merchandise from the Cub Foods store in the 2600 block of Rice Creek Road April 10 initially told police he’d mistakenly walked out with the stuff because he was confused due to a medication. He then changed his story, apologized, admitted to stealing on purpose and was cited for theft and banned from the store for a year.

 

Theft from auto

A 47-year-old woman told police April 5 that sometime in the last 24 hours someone had gotten into her car and stolen her purse, which contained $370, her ID, Social Security card, insurance, debit and credit cards, as the vehicle was parked in the 1500 block of First Avenue NW.

St. Anthony

Arrest

Officers conducting a warrant stop of a 20-year-old man March 28 at the intersection of Stinson Boulevard and 37th Avenue noticed narcotics in open view, so the man was arrested for his outstanding Ramsey County warrant for fifth-degree assault and felony fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, oxycodone. The man’s passenger, an 18-year-old woman, had an outstanding Ramsey County fifth-degree assault warrant of her own. They were both booked at the Ramsey County Jail.

 

DWI

Police stopped an 18-year-old Crystal woman March 30 at Silver Lane and Silver Lake Court and arrested her for DWI — she registered a blood alcohol level of .10. She was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for misdemeanor fourth-degree DWI.

 

Theft

A 52-year-old woman was being held by Cub Foods security at the store in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road March 28 after she was caught trying to steal $116 worth of merchandise. Once officers arrived, she was cited for theft and sent on her way.

 

With good reason to lie 

Security at the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road was once again holding onto a shoplifter — this time a 36-year-old woman caught March 31 trying to boost $120 worth of merchandise — though she was not cited and sent on her way. When police asked her who she was she gave them a false name. It turned out the woman had an outstanding Ramsey County warrant for felony motor vehicle theft and a Hennepin County warrant for tampering with a motor vehicle. She was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for giving false information to police, the two warrants and for misdemeanor theft.
