Roseville/Bulletin police reports • Published October 1, 2018

Arden Hills

Too many dogs

Deputies issued a warning to an individual who lives in the 1900 block of Todd Drive the afternoon of Sept. 19 because they had six dogs — they need to get rid of a couple and get that number down to two or three.


Pharmacy scam

A 64-year-old man told police Sept. 21 he was out $114 after a woman defrauded him over the phone claiming to be carrying out his refill request at the pharmacy.



Falcon Heights


A 41-year-old woman told police Sept. 18 that someone kicked in the door to her garage located in the 1500 block of Iowa Avenue and stole $7,500 worth of jewelry, change and keys.



Cool joke

A woman called a business in the 1600 block of Snelling Avenue the afternoon of Sept. 19 and said she had a bomb and that nobody was to leave the business. A man called back right away and said the bomb threat had been a joke.


Macaw Heights

Deputies received a Sept. 18 report of two green and orange macaws — yes, parrots — about 35 feet up a tree in the 1300 block of Garden Avenue above some kids playing basketball. The birds flew off and are still on the flight — their owner was notified.



A man stole two bottles of booze Sept. 18 from the liquor store in the 1500 block of Larpenteur Avenue, some $35 worth of hooch.





A trio of men reported Sept. 10 that an apartment complex under construction in the 1500 block of Eustis Street was burglarized and that some $5,800 worth of tools were stolen.



A 51-year-old man and a 19-year-old man were stopped Sept. 9 on Highway 280 at Como Avenue for racing — each was cited for reckless driving and released.


Shot-out window?

An employee at the BP gas station located in the 2400 block of Larpenteur Avenue told police Sept. 12 that someone had shot out a window on a garage door at the station. The gun-toting prowler may also have damaged a trailer that was parked inside said garage.


Walk in the park

Officers headed to Lauderdale Community Park in the 1800 block of Fulham Street Sept. 7 on a report of a dispute. A man and a woman, who were no longer there when police arrived, apparently were threatening a family. The person who’d called the police said they didn’t want to pursue charges but only wanted the incident to be documented.



Little Canada


Deputies responded to an alarm sounding at a business in the 2900 block of Rice Street just around bar close time on Sept. 21 and found the place’s back door had been broken and $1,000 had been stolen.


Rare DWI and 

theft combo

A 34-year-old Roseville woman and a 24-year-old woman from St. Paul flagged down a deputy just after bar close Sept. 23 in the 2500 block of Rice Street and said someone had just stolen their cell phones. The deputy tracked the phones with GPS to a car parked behind a nearby business. The deputy recovered the phones from a man inside the car, who was arrested for theft and DWI.


Stolen plate

A 45-year-old man who lives in the 2800 block of County Drive told police Sept. 24 that someone had stolen one of the license plates off his car sometime in the past month.



A 51-year-old Lakeland man told police Sept. 18 that $1,500 worth of tools were stolen from his work truck as it was parked off Little Canada Road at Australian Avenue.


A man stole some $200 worth of body wash and laundry soap from a store in the 2600 block of Rice Street on Sept. 23.





Mounds View

Timely exit

Police were called the 2100 block of Mounds View Boulevard just after noon Sept. 16 because a woman was painting graffiti on the walls of a business — by the time officers arrived she’d left in a vehicle.



New Brighton

A single tire?

A 59-year-old woman attempted to drive off from her place in the 900 block of County Road D the morning of Sept. 23, making it about 50 feet before realizing that sometime overnight someone had stolen the front passenger side tire off her car while it was parked in the driveway.


Another lifted plate

A 58-year-old man who resides in the 1400 block of 20th Avenue told police Sept. 22 someone had stolen the license plate from the back window of his car sometime last month.




Theft from auto

A 30-year-old Minneapolis man told police Sept. 19 that some $4,200 worth of stuff — it’s unclear what — was stolen from his and a 24-year-old woman’s car as it was parked that same day in the 900 block of Nancy Circle.


Theft from 

outside garage

A 30-year-old woman who lives in the 4100 block of Lexington Avenue told police Sept. 21 that sometime overnight someone stole tires and rims and a microphone from outside her garage, $2,200 worth of property.



St. Anthony


A 39-year-old woman told police Sept. 6 that her neighbor had swung a PVC pipe in her direction but missed within inches of her body. The woman was not hurt.


An 18-year-old woman told police Sept. 16 she’d been assaulted by a male acquaintance, who was identified as an 18-year-old man. Police took photos of the woman’s injuries and arrested the man, who was booked at the Hennepin County Jail for fifth-degree assault.


Gun stolen from car

A 31-year-old man told police Sept. 5 that someone entered his locked car and stole a $310 handgun from inside it as it was parked in the 3100 block of 39th Avenue. Police have the weapon’s serial number.


Free money

A 19-year-old woman told police Sept. 10 that she’s out $500 cash. It went missing while she was out, she said, guessing someone entered her apartment in the 2500 block of Silver Lane through the open sliding glass door in order to take the money.


Lock the car for

 better results

A 43-year-old man who lives in the 3900 block of Shamrock Drive told police Sept. 13 that someone entered his unlocked vehicle overnight as it was parked in his driveway. The prowler used the garage door opener in the car to open the garage and then enter the man’s home. The intruder took the man’s wife’s purse, which contained credit cards, her ID and car keys, and then used the car keys to steal a vehicle, which contained a tablet computer, MP3 player and a set of golf clubs. 


Perfect/worst timing

Officers on patrol Sept. 4 saw a 25-year-old man running from the Twin Cities Towing lot in the 3200 block of Stinson Boulevard to a waiting car, so the cops thought they’d pull that car over. Inside the car, police found a backpack containing plastic bags of methamphetamine, along with a bag of marijuana and a pipe. They arrested a 31-year-old man for felony drug possession and trespassing, and he was booked at the Hennepin County Jail; the 25-year-old was arrested and released with a citation for misdemeanor trespassing.


Theft from

 garage sale

A 49-year-old woman told police Sept. 7 that someone stole two metal ramps — they were worth $50 — from her garage sale that she was holding in the 3600 block of Penrod Lane.


Theftus interruptus

Police headed to the scene of an interrupted theft in the 3300 block of 39th Avenue on Sept. 3. A 51-year-old man said someone had gotten into his unlocked car; officers found items that had been removed from the vehicle, though the man noted he was still missing his wallet, three thumb drives and his iPad Mini.


Threatening note

Police interviewed a 12-year-old boy and his parents after staff at St. Anthony Middle School found a threatening note left in one of the boys’ bathrooms. The case was turned over to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office for review.
