Minneapolis Crime of the Week

Dear Pine County. Please start being more responsible gun owners. We don’t appreciate seeing your handguns turn up at Minneapolis crime scenes:

2400 blk 6th St N: Officers recovered marijuana, scale, plastic baggies, black facemask, loaded Pine Co stolen .38 caliber revolver with obliterated serial number after conducting surveillance of drug deals: 4 Arrested/LOITERING with Intent to Sell Narcotics/WEAPON

Sad one. There must be better ways to impress your friends than playing Russian Roulette:

3400 blk Elliot Av S: Officers dispatched to SHOOTING call; officers discovered 17-yr-old dead at scene, victim of self-inflicted gunshot wound to head; victim well known to police as “Sureno 13“ gang; victim died while trying to impress friends with “Russian Roulette”

No word on whether that gun came from Pine County as well.

It’s been a busy week for police dogs:

K9: Teams tracked/apprehended 6 wanted suspects: burglar tracked/apprehended hiding in porch; domestic/property damage suspect tracked, apprehended; robbery suspect tracked, tazed by K-9 officer prior to apprehension: arson suspect tracked/apprehended in wooded hiding spot; burglar chased, apprehended by canine while fleeing from burglary of business; burglar found hiding in residence apprehended; K9 officers responded to a lost 8-yr-old, found child in bushes

Too bads COPS wasn’t on the scene to film people fleeing out the front and back of this apartment building:

3200 blk Portland Av: Officers responded to several drug dealing complaints involving apartments in building by obtaining warrants; SWAT called in to make entry, Community Response Team Officers assisted; many people detained while attempting to run from front, back doors; running suspect threw ¼ oz crack, later recovered; 4 suspects detained, 1 with another ¼ oz crack; some suspects with outstanding warrants: 5 Arrested/

This 16 year old has 40 arrests to date. Do you get the feeling that putting him away for a while could have prevented a rape at gunpoint? The suspect later confessed to two other similar rape cases:

1900 Broadway Av W: Victim approached by suspect who implied had gun, forced victim into alley to perform oral sex; robbed victim of cell phone, bank card; victim fled, called 911 from home, directed officers to scene; short time later off-duty K9 Officer detained suspect matching description; was positively not identified by victim, but had victim’s property: Arrested/CRIMINAL SEXUAL CONDUCT-RAPE/KIDKNAPPING (16 yr-old suspect with 40 previous arrests)
