There have been a few recent car or garage break-ins in Kingfield, including this one:
“Our garage on the 3900 block of Pleasant was broken into Saturday 4/24 in the afternoon. The thief snipped a padlock on the outside of the garage to gain access, then snipped a bike lock that attached a bike to the wall of the garage and took the bike. He or she took nothing else. However, an unfamiliar bike was left behind in the alley right next to the garage. The police officer who came to write up the case said it’s common this time of year that folks will “upgrade” their bikes, leaving their old ones behind.”
“The mobile drug dealing is in FULL swing in East Harriet and Kingfield. I have witnessed several occurrences in front of my house and have even yelled at the people in the cars (which I know I should not do!) as well as taken down license plates and emailed them to Amy Lavender, our new crime prevention specialist. I have called 911, too, if I have a good description of the car(s).
All this being said, I think it’s extremely important that we all know what to do and what not to do, when we witness a drug deal. I also think it’s important for our communities to know and understand what the police do with the information we provide and why it’s REALLY important that we don’t ignore what’s going on.”

Last chance! Tomorrow, Friday, April 23rd, is the final day for Minneapolis residents to order a $25 tree through the Minneapolis City Trees program. There were exactly 108 trees (21 Kentucky coffee trees and 87 Redmon lindens) left for sale Thursday morning through the City Trees program. If you know of anyone that still has not ordered a tree and has open space in their yard, please send this on to them or give them an encouraging call. This is a great time for residents to get out ahead of the emerald ash borer and start the next generation of urban trees. Orders for trees can be placed at www.treetrust.org.
