Sheriff’s investigators are looking into a potentially interrupted assault, after acting on a report late last week that resulted in detaining a 13-year-old Rush City student.
The suspect allegedly maintained a “hit list” that a probation agent happened to view. Deputies were notified by the agent when the list was recovered from the juvenile male March 14. A second list was seized Friday, March 15 after various students had been contacted by investigators and interviewed. The suspect is being held on possible charges of terroristic threats at the Lino Lakes Juvenile Facility.
March 17 a call came in of a man threatening a girlfriend with a shotgun. Authorities went to a home on Maxwell Road in South Chisago Lake Township and arrested the 54-year-old suspect about 2 a.m. Charges are pending.
Authorities were busy responding to well over a dozen minor crash sites, as vehicles had trouble with road conditions over the week. One sheriff’s squad car sustained minor damages March 13 when a woman in a car struck the front bumper while driving the wrong way on Hwy. 8 in Lindstrom. The patrol deputy was trying to stop the vehicle and alert it to turn around.
March 15 a Rush City woman advised sheriff investigators of a possible Medicare fraud. The caller said he was sending her new cards and needed her bank location info and account numbers. She declined to give out the information, hung up and the caller tried again. She then alerted the sheriff’s office.
Authorities advise: do not ever give financial information out over the phone, especially if you haven’t initiated the contact.
