Saturday, a theft was reported from the Robert J Elkington School parking lot. A resident dropped his keys in the parking lot on the way to a game. A woman found them, located the car, was seen on video sitting in the car for about 3 minutes, then brought the keys to the concession stand. The resident found the keys on the concession counter and discovered his wallet missing from his car.
Saturday night, police were called to a restaurant on highway 169 south. A man was in physical distress. When officers arrived, he told them he had been stopped by police in a car earlier in the evening and ate 5 points of meth. He believed he was overdosing. Meds 1 transferred the man to Grand Itasca.
Monday evening, officers were alerted to a fraud. A resident on 3rd street was contacted by a man pretending to be a police officer. He told the resident that his grandson was in jail in Hibbing and he needed $3000 in bail money. The resident purchased gift cards and read the man the numbers. The card money was emptied and he hadn’t heard from his grandson. Officers educated the man on the scam. Always check with local police or call official posted phone numbers to verify these kind of calls.
