Methed-out and busted in a tent

Police reports published July 22, 2015 in the Oakdale - Lake Elmo Review

Oakdale police responded to a report of someone sleeping in a tent on private property, located just south of the Comcast Service Center in the 7000 block of 43rd Street North, in the early morning hours Wednesday, June 20. The responding officer found a woman in the tent, but she was not sleeping. She told the officer she had recently smoked methamphetamine. Police seized two glass pipes in the tent that both tested positive for methamphetamine and a “bottle shaker” just behind the tent used to make the illicit drug. The items were photographed and taken to the Oakdale Police Department as evidence. The woman was arrested, and declined to speak to police during a Miranda interview.

A creep who hates dogs

An Oakdale woman walked into the police station Monday, June 15, to alert police to a man she said threatened to kill her dog the night before. She told officers she was afraid to call the police at the time.  According to the police summary report, the man threatened to kill her dog and hang it from a tree at 9:45 p.m. Sunday, June 14. The woman believes he was the same man who exposed himself near the apartment building about a year ago, and also caused a disturbance at a nearby dog park. An officer provided the woman a statement form and urged her call police immediately if he is seen again. 

Skipping court

A man driving a Buick with a cracked windshield was stopped by police as he pulled into the parking lot of the Super America gas station on Geneva Avenue Sunday, June 14, at 11:45 p.m. An officer pulled the man over for driving the vehicle after revocation. He reportedly admitted to police he was aware of his revoked status. According to the officer at the scene, the man has a “very extensive history of failing to appear in court.” The driver posted bail after being cited and arrested for driving after revocation. He is “expected” to make an upcoming appearance in court.
