Disc Jockey Now Just a Jockey: Fridley Police Blotter

They hit a DJ's truck at the VFW.

The day the music got stolen was Sept. 28, 2012. That's when someone broke into a DJ van parked at the VFW in Fridley, smashing the driver's side front window and taking the owner's purse. Also taken from the bed of the truck were 1,100 discs of music—the owner's entire collection.

Here are other incidents from the weekly report from the Fridley Police Department.

In all incidents in which 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.
