Suspicious Activity Was Realtor Showing House: Fridley Police Blotter
Flashlights were involved in the 6:30 p.m. incident.
You know the real estate market isn't what it should be when a showing at a house that is for sale prompts a suspicious-activity call to police.
In fairness, the Dec. 1 incident occurred at 6:26 p.m., so it was dark. The person making the report said two vehicles arrived at a house in the 5800 block of Sixth Street NE. The vehicles' occupants got out and started walking around the house with flashlights.
Police dispatched to the scene discovered a real estate agent and prospective buyers.

In all incidents where an arrest occurred, a charge is merely an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. The arrested person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Incidents generally appear in the order in which they were reported, not necessarily the order in which they occurred.
