Location: Rosedale Center, 1595 Hwy 36
Rosedale Security requested officers' assistance with two males who were seen using narcotics. Officers responded and located the two males, who had bloodshot eyes, were very lethargic, and were avoiding eye contact, and sitting near the entrance to the mall. Officers asked the males to stand up. When officers told them they were going to do a safety sweep for weapons one of the males became uncooperative and swung his body towards officers. He was trying to pull his arms away and reach towards a small bag he had attached to his chest. Eventually officers located a loaded handgun and drug paraphernalia in the bag. Officers ran the serial number on the gun and learned it had been reported stolen in Chicago. They also determined that this male was a convicted felon and therefore ineligible to be in possession of a firearm. The male stated he had purchased the gun from a guy in Minneapolis. The second male was very cooperative and stated he had just gotten out of prison and did not want to go back. He stated that he knew the other male had a gun and told officers he knew he used it to rob people. One adult male from Blaine was arrested for possession of stolen property and felon in possession of a weapon. One adult male from Coon Rapids was released.

Roseville police were dispatched to a hit and run at a plumbing company. A short time later, a complainant arrived at the police department wishing to report an assault. Investigators linked the two incidents and interviewed the parties involved. The complainant had scheduled an appointment with the plumbers at 0800 on the 18th. The plumbers arrived a half an hour ahead of the appointment time. The complainant, upset that the plumbers were early, told them to leave and return at 0800. When the plumbers did not return, the complainant drove to the company’s location and found the two plumbers. One plumber approached the vehicle to speak with the complainant. The complainant put his vehicle in drive and struck the plumber hard enough to knock him down. The complainant then began backing away from the building. The second plumber then approached the complainant’s vehicle and hopped into the driver’s side window in an attempt to get the complainant out of the truck. The complainant latched onto the plumber’s arm and accelerated away for approximately 50 feet with the plumber hanging out the window causing several abrasions to the plumber’s extremities. The two plumbing employees were transported to a nearby hospital to receive medical treatment. The complainant was arrested and charged in custody with two counts of second degree assault.

A semi-driver reported he was northbound on Cleveland Avenue when he saw the male lying in the southbound lane of Cleveland Avenue, near Oakcrest Avenue. He saw an SUV approaching southbound on Cleveland, so he honked his horn and flashed his lights to try to alert the other driver; however, the SUV ran over the male.

Through surveillance video and witness statements, investigators located the SUV, a 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe, at a nearby motel. A witness staying in the same motel room as the driver confirmed that Daniel Alexander Jennings struck someone with his vehicle the night prior. Jennings spoke with detectives on the phone and he admitted running something over in the area of Cleveland and Oakcrest on his way home from work.
