Minneapolis Crime of the Week

Oldest rule in the book: If you’re carrying crack, don’t act like a crackhead when you get pulled over:

29th/Fremont Av: Officers assisted stopped vehicle for careless driving, driver appeared nervous, made furtive movements inside vehicle; officers checked area where driver was reaching, recovered 124.5 grams powder cocaine; 4.7 grams crack cocaine: Arrested/NARCOTICS (suspect has 77 previous arrest records)
CID investigating

And don’t jay-walk with weed:

Franklin/Nicollet Avs S: Community Response Team (CRT) officers stopped man for crossing street against red light; when asked for ID he fled on foot, but was quickly taken into custody; recovered 57 grams marijuana individually wrapped in dime bags: Arrested/NARCOTICS
CID investigating

Darn copper thieves:

1100 blk Spring St NE: Officers dispatched to call of Burglary in progress; suspects were cutting copper pipes out of a vacant house; officers apprehended 1 suspect inside house, 2nd suspect attempting to drive away from scene: 2 Arrested/ BURGLARY
Precinct investigating

This reminds me of the Big Lebowski but with underage women:

Hiawatha/Lake St LRT: Victim forced into car, taken to address in S Mpls, interrogated concerning cell phone, taken to another address, robbed, assaulted by group of juvenile females
Investigating: ROBBERY of PERSON

  1. Copper thieves are the suspected reason behind that house explosion in North last week.

    Don’t you watch the Sopranos? That is crazy bank.

  2. I have never watched an episode of Soporanos, so I’m really out of the loop on why houses blow up. Guess I better do some “research” one of these nights.

  3. The Sopranos doesn’t detail the exploding bit, just the stripping copper is a way for crackheads and mobsters to make money.

    The speculation on the home explosion was some vagrants etc. stripped a bunch of copper pipes and wiring and maybe combined with a gas leak lead to the explosion.

    I don’t know whats worse though, the fact that the houses on either side were also unoccupied, or that folks need a fix so bad they’ll strip pipe and wiring from a house.
