A verbal domestic dispute was reported on Lake Ridge Drive. A couple, married for five years, told officer they had got into a verbal argument, and that it was never physical at any point.

A third-degree burglary was at Public Storage at 2280 Wooddale Drive.  A dark brown wooden dinning room set from Ashley Furniture was reported stolen.  According to reports, unknown suspect(s) entered the storage property and gained access to the 4000 building. While in the building, the suspect(s) forced entry into the unit. The victim was unsure of what was missing at the time. Later, the victim was able to tell the dinning room table set was missing. Video was requested, but management would not provide.

A verbal domestic was reported on Hazel Trail. A couple divorced recently and still lived together. They informed officers they had got into a verbal argument, and it was never physical at any point. One left the residence to go stay with friends for the evening. No further assistance was needed.

Police responded to a suspicious person complaint in the 2400 block of Sandstone Drive. The caller said a male was looking into a car while it was warming up, and ran west after a family member went outside. The caller said it appeared the suspect was going to possibly walk up to the car. Nothing was stolen. Police followed footprints to a common walking path where the tracks were lost. The area was checked with negative results. 

Property damage as a result of a crash was reported along Settlers Ridge Parkway. A driver was southbound on Settlers Ridge Parkway and was approaching the intersection with Gateway. There is no stop sign for northbound/southbound traffic. Another driver was eastbound on Gateway and tried to stop for the stop sign, but slid on the ice in the intersection, sliding into the rear passenger side bumper of the first driver. The striking driver did not have proof of insurance with her on the scene. A citation was issued for failing to provide proof of insurance. Both vehicles were driven from the scene.  

A theft complaint was received from Xperience Fitness, in the 1500 block of Queens Drive. The caller said his jacket, hanging in the men’s locker room during his workout, was gone upon his return. Surveillance video was reviewed allowing for identification of suspects entering and exiting with black jackets. No suspect information is presently known. The value of the jacket was $30, and sets of keys were in the pockets.

A third-degree theft complaint was received from Simply Self Storage, 881 Weir Drive. The caller rents an indoor storage unit at the listed address secured with a padlock. There was a main gate at the front entrance, but the doors to the indoor units are not secured. The complainant went to check her unit for the first time since 10/31/13, and found multiple totes had been rearranged; her couch was torn and damaged, as well as several missing items. The complainant was given a property loss form and advised to return it when she made a thorough inventory of the unit.

A Green & White Taxi driver reported a theft along Collingwood Lane.  The cab driver advised he picked up an 18-year-old black male, and upon arrival in St. Paul, the male fled without paying his cab fair. The driver was advised to contact the St. Paul Police Department.

Jan. 8

A theft complaint was received from the 370 bock of Lake View Drive. A couple lived together for one month and was in a romantic relationship. When the female moved out, the male alleged she took his Samsung Galaxy tablet that he purchased and paid for.  The male didn’t want to pursue theft charges; however, asked for assistance in contacting the female. The female initially said she didn’t have the tablet, but later recanted and said she had it and was holding onto it because her belongings were still in the male’s apartment. Both agreed to exchange property.

A theft complaint was received in the 1440 block of Whistler Point Road. The complainant stated she applied for a loan over the Internet with Gentle Breeze Loans. The company requested $200 as a show of good faith. The money was transferred to the company via gift card. The company then advised they would need additional funds due to a bad credit score. The complainant refused, as she signed an agreement that didn’t list the second payment, and the company refused to return the initial $200.

A domestic complaint was received along Lake View Drive. The complainant called and was upset with a man she met at a bar four days prior. Upon police arrival, the complainant stated she wanted the man to leave due him being drunk for four days. The man was poorly dressed and had no one to care for him at the time.  The man registered a sample of .275, and was transported to Dakota County Detox without incident.
