- April 27, 2013 - 2:13 PM
Insufficient funds. A customer, unaware he needed an ID to pay for his $64 gas purchase with a check at Kwik Trip, 14730 Victor Hugo Blvd., was told by police to remain there until a family member who had been contacted arrived with either his ID or money for the gas.
Burglary. A pole barn in the 6000 block of 132nd Street was broken into sometime while the owner was out of town. The building had been rummaged through and items were reported missing.
Suspicious activity. A resident in the 4000 block of Fable Hill Parkway thought it was odd there was snow in his neighbor’s driveway and reported it to police. The man thought it was unusual because there had been plenty of time to shovel the snow. Police advised him perhaps the neighbor had other things to do.
Suspicious activity. A woman in the 15000 block of Farnham Avenue reported someone in a black sedan parked in front of her residence and attempted to get in her front door. It was discovered the man was a neighbor’s son-in-law who had the wrong address. The neighbor apologized to the woman.
Juvenile mischief. A public works employee complained to police about a juvenile in the area of Dellwood Lane and 1st Avenue who had been tampering with a newspaper box and throwing items down the sewer. The employee, who was trying to clear the sewer, said the juvenile was disrespectful when he asked him to stop. Police contacted the juvenile, who denied everything.
Copper theft. Copper from a yard sprinkler system was taken from a home in the 100 block of Ridge Way. The copper was valued at $300.
MARINE ON ST. CROIX
Loud exhaust. The driver of a vehicle in the area of Broadway Street and Old Guslander Trail was given a citation for loud exhaust. The driver told an officer he’d had the problem for the last three or four months.
Squad car/deer accident. An officer accidentally hit a deer that had run out into the road on 170th Street near Manning Trail. The deer was killed in the collision.
Theft. Video from a security camera showed a woman take an estimated 100 bottles of nail polish worth $1,236 from Walgreens, 985 Geneva Av.
Assist the public. An officer responded to a report of people playing baseball in the street in the 6100 block of 43rd Street. The complainant was concerned because one of the tennis balls they were using hit her house. The officer talked to a man who was playing ball with his kids and they agreed to move further down the road where there were no homes.
Calf at large. Despite the protests of its mother, an officer picked up a calf that was in the roadway in the area of Hudson Road and Manning Avenue and put it inside a fenced area. The officer informed the owner of the calf that he needed to plow the snow near the fence line to prevent further escapes.
Suspicious activity. An employee of Staples at 9885 Hudson Place reportedly refused to make copies of a book about making bombs for a customer. The man made the request several times, but the employee continued to refuse. The employee wanted the situation documented.
