Prolific Burglary Suspect In Custody

The Minneapolis Police Department has arrested a 56-year-old man responsible for numerous burglaries, including a well-publicized break-in and vandalism case from the Umatul Islamic Center last Wednesday.

The man is suspected in at least 10 burglaries over the past 10 days along E. Lake Street on 2nd Ave., 3rd Ave. and 4th Ave. that are currently under investigation. After diligently investigating the string of burglaries, 3rd Precinct Property Investigators developed a suspect and issued an arrest bulletin. Two very alert officers arrested the suspect late last night. This type of dedicated and thorough police work showcases the skills and drive of the entire 3rd Precinct team. The businesses in the Lake St. area can continue to conduct daily business free of one more career criminal.
