Arden Hills

Dog hit by car?

A dead dog was reported the evening of Aug. 27 as being in the eastbound lane of traffic on Lake Valentine Road at Janet Court. However, when a deputy arrived there was nothing there, prompting speculation that the dog was moved prior to the arrival of police.


Vehicle fire

A 43-year-old St. Paul man told authorities that his car was on fire the afternoon of Aug. 28 on Highway 10 at Highway 96. The sheriff’s department responded along with the Lake Johanna Fire Department, which put out the blaze. Nobody was injured, and it’s unclear what caused the fire.


Washed check

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office got in touch with its Ramsey County counterpart Aug. 27 to discuss check fraud with Arden Hills ties. It had been notified of a cancelled transaction at a bank in its jurisdiction involving a washed check written for $3,000; there was no loss of money and police are investigating.



Falcon Heights


A deputy came upon a man sleeping behind the wheel of his car just after 6 p.m. Aug. 29 at the Speedway gas station in the 1300 block of Larpenteur Avenue. The man’s driver side window was rolled down, and the deputy saw empty beer cans in the man’s backseat. The deputy had to touch the man, identified as a 24-year-old from St. Paul, in order to rouse him. He appeared drunk and admitted to drinking prior to driving; he said he knew about the empty cans in his car. The man blew a .12 blood alcohol concentration and was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for fourth-degree DWI.




Burglary waiting to happen

A 62-year-old woman who lives in the 1600 block of Rosehill Circle told police Aug. 22 that someone had entered her unlocked car and stole $30 in change along with her garage door opener.



An officer arrested a 26-year-old Roseville man Aug. 22 on Highway 280 at Broadway Street for third-degree DWI — the man blew a .13 blood alcohol concentration. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for the DWI as well as operating an uninsured vehicle and for driving with a revoked license.


Purse-snatcher caught

An officer stopped a car Aug. 23 on Highway 280 at Broadway Street for a traffic violation and after a search of the vehicle came upon credit cards that didn’t belong to anyone in the car. Police contacted one of the owners of the cards found in the car and she said she’d been the victim of a purse snatching in Minneapolis earlier that day. Police arrested an 18-year-old man who was booked at the Ramsey County Jail for felony financial transaction card fraud — the other people in the car were sent on their way.



Little Canada

Everybody makes mistakes

A deputy wrote up a self report after backing into a mailbox the morning of Aug. 28 while at the Ramsey County Water Patrol station in the first block of South Owasso Boulevard, noting damage to their squad car’s bumper.


Garage burglary

A 47-year-old man who lives in the 2900 block of Greenbrier Street told police Aug. 28 that his garage had been burglarized sometime in the past couple of days. The burglar stole tools, PlayStation gaming consoles, movies and keys, and rummaged through the vehicles inside the garage though nothing was taken from them. It’s unclear how the prowler got in; the doors were locked and undamaged.


Lock it up!

A 46-year-old woman told police the morning of Aug. 25 that someone entered her unlocked car overnight as it was parked in the 100 block of Canabury Court. She’s out her computer bag and computer, wallet, ID and credit cards, which had been left in the car. The credit cards were used by the thief but later cancelled and the bank reversed the charges.


Strange incident

Deputies arrested four people — a 38-year-old man from Big Lake; an 18-year-old man from St. Paul; a 20-year-old man from St. Paul; and a 40-year-old woman from Minneapolis — after responding to a report of burglary the morning of Aug. 27 in the 600 block of Keller Parkway. The four were booked at the jail for receiving stolen property, while one of them was also booked for burglary. The victims, listed as a 67-year-old Minneapolis man and a 74-year-old Little Canada man, declined to prosecute.



Police reports out of Mounds View were not available this week.



New Brighton

Card fraud

A 47-year-old woman believes someone stole her outgoing credit card bill and used the information within it to make charges on her card without it ever leaving her possession. She reported the fraud on Aug. 28, two days after noticing a series of charges on her card. She assumes the bill was stolen from her mailbox in the 100 block of 12th Avenue NW.




A 60-year-old man was arrested for DWI the afternoon of Aug. 29 in the 1000 block of County Road D after he crashed his SUV into a pickup truck, failing to yield a turn. The man complained of neck pain and was taken to the hospital, before being booked for third-degree DWI and an outstanding warrant.


Photocopied $1 bill

Staff at the New Brighton Community Center turned over a fake $1 bill that was an obvious photocopy to police just after noon on Aug. 30. Employees figure they took it in with other small bills and didn’t notice who gave it to them.


Stealing drugs from family

Police arrested a 20-year-old Roseville man at a New Brighton address the afternoon of Aug. 27 after previously going there that day on a report the man was stealing prescription drugs from his mother. Once booked at the Ramsey County Jail for an outstanding warrant, police found hypodermic needles, a vile of Narcan, which is an opioid overdose antidote, methamphetamine, heroin and multiple ADHD medications, which were prescribed to his little brother, in the man’s backpack.


Stolen bikes?

A 36-year-old man reported Aug. 30 that two kid’s bikes and a Razor scooter went missing from the end of his driveway that afternoon. He told police the person who took the items might have mistaken them as being for free since there was a garage sale happening down the block.




Barking dogs

A deputy arrived in the 300 block of Oakwood Drive just after 9 p.m. to look into dogs that had been barking for an hour and a half prior outside a house where no one was home. Police contacted the dogs’ owner who made arrangements for a neighbor to let the animals into their house.


Driver hits bicyclist

Police responded to a report of a driver who hit a bicyclist just after 5 p.m. on Aug. 29 at Lexington and Hamline avenues. The bicyclist, a 26-year-old Shoreview woman, was checked by medics and released at the scene. There were no details about the driver.


Misuse of 911

A deputy investigating a 911 hang-up in the early morning hours of Aug. 27 arrested a 22-year-old Brooklyn Center woman for misuse of 911. She was picked up in the 5900 block of Fernwood Street.


Mysterious person

A caller who lives in the 5900 block of Royal Oaks Drive told police Aug. 30 just after noon that day they’d seen a suspicious person entering an attached garage at a neighbor’s home. Both the garage and house were cleared by deputies, who found no one inside, nor any signs that anything was missing.


Stolen Accord

A 28-year-old man told police the afternoon of Aug. 27 that his 2001 Honda Accord had been stolen from the 500 block of Harriet Avenue sometime that day.



St. Anthony

Broken window

A 31-year-old man told police Aug. 24 that someone broke a window on his car while it was parked in the 3000 block of 31st Avenue. The prime suspect is a 30-year-old man.


Lying for a reason

A 26-year-old woman driving a friend’s car stopped Aug. 19 at Penrod Lane and Edgemere Avenue was arrested for giving false information to police and for a drug warrant out of Scott County and a felony failure to appear in court warrant out of Pennington County. She was booked at the Ramsey County Jail. The friend was arrested and released with a citation for allowing the operation of an uninsured vehicle. 


Theft upgraded to burglary

An employee at the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road told police Aug. 25 that he saw on security footage a 58-year-old man stealing merchandise. The man had previously been issued a trespass notice for the store by police, and was seen taking $683 worth of stuff from the store. Because he’d been trespassed, the man is now facing charges of third-degree burglary should he be arrested; he’s been flagged with a pick up and hold notice for other police departments.
