In Strange Tale of the Tape, Males Escaped on Foot: Fridley Police Blotter

A Fridley police officer responded to a report of suspicious activity in the 500 block of Kimball Street NE on Sept. 23, 2012—several males had just run through a neighbor's yard. Upon arrival, the officer found the street had been block by a tape measure strung across the road. The officer removed the tape. The males were no longer there.

Here are other incidents selected from the weekly reports provided by the Fridley Police Department:

Sept. 22, 2012

  • 9:23 a.m.: Someone let the air out of the tires of a vehicle on 63rd-1/2 Way NE and also wrote in marker on the rear of the vehicle.
  • 4:36 p.m.: Someone appears to have tried unsuccessfully to gain entry to a garage in the 1200 block of 72nd Avenue NE. The garage door was cracked open slightly from the bottom.

Sept. 23, 2012

  • 3:03 a.m.: A passerby at 68th Avenue NE and Highway 65 reported a male walking down the middle of the street and jumping into traffic. A responding officer spoke with a male who said he had just been released from the hospital with a broken foot and had walked to this location with no shoes. The officer transported him home. 
  • 10:50 p.m.: A female reported receiving a strange phone call from a person claiming to have had a dream about one of her family members.

    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.
