MPD Officers Nab St. Louis Park Robbery Suspect

On Thanksgiving evening, MPD Officers from the 3rd precinct were monitoring surrounding cities activities and learned of a robbery in St. Louis Park in which a vehicle was taken.

About 20 minutes later, the officers observed the stolen vehicle in the area of 29th Street and 5th Avenue. The vehicle was parked and unoccupied, however officers observed 2 males running from it.

Officers gave an order for the two suspects to stop but they fled on foot. A perimeter was set up and the search was conducted. The two males, ages 19 – 22, were located hiding in a child’s playhouse in a nearby yard.

One of the suspects was positively identified as the suspect in the robbery in St. Louis Park. St. Louis Park took custody of that individual.
