A roundup of burglaries, thefts, and other incidents on Sept. 5 and 6 as reported to the Minneapolis Police Department.

Is nothing sacred?

In what has to be a once-in-a-million occurrence, a Sunday school teacher at the in Fulton reported a credit card had been pilfered from her purse, left in a classroom while she walked her students to a chapel service last weekend.

According to a report filed with the Minneapolis Police Department, the woman arrived home to calls from Capital One inquiring about a $335 purchase at an Edina Target store, a $177 purchase at a Walgreens in Edina, a pair of purchases at a Barnes & Noble Store totaling $44.42, and $30.54 worth of food bought at a Minneapolis McDonalds. It was then that she realized her card was no longer in her possession.


Sept. 6

Police cited a St Paul woman for driving on West 36th Street with car windows that only allowed seven percent of the sun’s light to penetrate, appearing nearly black from the outside.

The woman was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor possession of marijuana in a motor vehicle, having an open bottle of liquor in her car, for having illegally tinted windows, and for being unable to produce proof of insurance. The car was impounded.
