Armed at Chipotle, Nice Neighbors, Bye-Bye buybuy Baby?: Woodbury Police Blotter

Selected calls to the Woodbury Public Safety Department from Oct. 24-28.

The following information was obtained from recent police reports. 

Oct. 24

A political sign was reported stolen from a home at the 1800 block of Bowsens Lane. It was the second time it happened there. It has been an ongoing problem in the city.

A relationship that ended poorly apparently led to a Woodbury man’s phone number being posted in several spots on Craigslist under bogus accounts. Police contacted the ex, who accused him of creating a “spoofing number” that called her hundreds of times a day.

A woman called police to ask if she could walk her dog while a helicopter was in the area about another issue. See: Driver Flees Scene of Woodbury Crash

Workers at buybuy Baby called police after a customer upset that an item he ordered was damaged had called to store and said: “Maybe he should pull the pin and blow the place up.” Officers contacted the man, who told them he said: “pull the pin on the registry.” He was trespassed from the business and police said he should have someone else return the item.

A home at the 7800 block of Cayenne Plaza was hit with a large rock.

Oct. 25

A teal Chevy pickup truck was spotted in the area following the left of a political sign from a yard at the 10300 block of Stony Creek Drive.

A resident at the 2600 block of Windsor Lane reported a video game console and more than 80 games had been stolen from the home’s basement sometime in the last month. He noticed the theft only after trying to open a window and finding it broken.

Police were called by a resident who saw a man she didn’t recognize move from one set of patio furniture to another at a home at the 6700 block of Christian Curve. She told police she knows most people in the area. Officers arrived and spoke with the man, who was new to the neighborhood and said he needed to walk around a bit because he had just completed work at a haunted house and wanted to calm down before bed.

Oct. 26

Neighbors came over to help clean up a mess a home at the 8800 block of Sequoia Road after it was toilet-papered, had obscene imaged drawn with mustard in the driveway, plastic forks stuck in the lawn and silly string sprayed about. (She had recently gotten out of the hospital and couldn’t clean it up herself.) 

A customer at the Hudson Road Chipotle called police after seeing a man parked across a handicap spot check the magazine of a pistol. Police conducted a felony stop of the vehicle at the Interstate 94-Woodbury Drive ramp. An unloaded gun was found in the center console and the man had a permit to carry it. 

Oct. 28

A man who was at the YMCA looking for friends began to yell at employees and refused to leave. An officer arrived and noted the smell of alcohol on his breath. He registered a .147 on a preliminary-breath test. The officer found his friend, who was sober and playing basketball, and he agreed to take the man home.
