Forest Lake police kept busy Thursday night and Friday morning with a series of incidents leading to arrests and jail bookings.
The night started with a call reporting trespassing just after 7: 30 p.m. Unrelated to the call, officers on scene noticed a Forest Lake man who had a felony warrant put out for him by the Department of Corrections for a parole violation. The 22-year-old was found hiding in the back seat of a car in a parking lot in the 600 block of Apartment Lane. He was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail.
The department received a call around 9 p.m. reporting a man kicking a van and throwing things in a yard in the 900 block of 12th Street SW. Upon police arrival, the man entered a residence. The homeowner then arrived and gave access to police. The subject of the call, a 32-year-old Woodbury man, had multiple felony warrants out for him from Dakota County. He was booked in the Washington County Jail.
At 1 a.m. Friday, police received a report of two men trying to break down a front door and threatening the home’s owner in the 100 block of Second Avenue NE. One man fled and evaded police and the other was stopped at the scene. He was found to be intoxicated and was belligerent, and a taser was used while taking him into custody. The Marine on St. Croix man, who turned 21 on Thursday, was booked in Washington County Jail. Charges pending from the county attorney include disorderly conduct, obstructing the legal process, and making terroristic threats, a felony.
