2 of 3 Stolen Yard-sale Guns Don't Work: Fridley Police Blotter

They were destined to be decorations.

A resident told Fridley police June 17 that someone stole three guns from his workshop in the 1500 block of 73rd Avenue NE. There was no sign of forced entry. The complainant said he bought the guns at a garage sale and was planning on simply hanging them up in his workshop. He also said two of the three guns didn't work.

Here are more items selected from information provided by the Fridley Police Department:

  • A vehicle hit a fire hydrant on June 16 at East River Road and 61st Way NE, causing damage to both.
  • A driver who struck a house in the 7400 block of Taylor Street NE on June 16 admitted to recreational use of prescription drugs, K2 and marijuana, and was driving without a license.
  • Police stopped a person driving a squad car at Holiday, 7295 University Avenue NE, on June 16 on suspicion of impersonating a police officer. He was wearing a security uniform and his vehicle had lights and other police equipment.
  • Someone threw coffee onto a new RV parked in a driveway in the 300 block of Hugo Street NE on June 17, as happened twice before in previous nights. 
  • Police impounded a dog that bit a person in the 6900 block of Hickory Circle NE on June 17 after determining it hadn't received a vaccination for about four years. The dog is under quarantine at Brighton Vet Clinic.
  • The owner of a vacant home in the 100 block of Craig Way NE left the back door open, prompting a June 17 call to police. He was planning to return to clean the house in preparation for resale.
  • A caller on June 17 said a large group of teenagers she didn't know who were walking in the 7300 block of Baker Avenue NE were rude to her and threatened to kill her, then ran away when a heavy rainstorm started. 
  • Two juveniles were playing with a ball in the roadway on June 18 in the 7200 block of Highway 65. 
  • A June 19 caller from Airport Taxi reported that a male and female couple paid only $20 of a $40 fare, then ran away at 57th and University avenues NE after the female vomited in the cab.

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.
