It’s Like an Episode of ‘Cops’ Outside My Window Weekly
I rent an apartment in St Cloud during the week and commute back to Fargo or Detroit Lakes on the weekends. Seems most every week there is some kind of crazy and sometimes criminal activity going on.
Several months ago, I woke up to one of those early morning drug busts at the house next door to my apartment building. At 4:30 in the morning, those concussion grenades can certainly get your attention.
A dozen police vehicles, including some sort of assault vehicle, flooded the street outside. It was pretty obvious they were selling something out of that house. Cars would pull up in front and soon someone would come out of the house and lean into the car. This would go on all night.
Now, this apartment building I live in during the week is right down by SCSU, not far from the Herb Brooks Hockey Arena and about a half-block away from St Cloud Police Community Outpost.
The most recent episode happened last night (8/15) right outside my window. From what I witnessed, this was one of those "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". I can't confirm that is what happened but what I saw was a crime of passion, in my opinion.
I saw a young woman enter the building and not long after exit and it looked like she was attempting to slash the tires on one of the cars parked out on the street. That wasn't working out for her so she got in her car and rammed the side of the vehicle.
It was no one and done. She proceeded to back up and ram the car a couple of more times before taking off down the street. She put some pretty significant dents in the side of the victim's vehicle.
The St Cloud Police at the Community Outpost must have heard the commotion of her car ramming the other car because she didn't even make it to the end of the block before being apprehended.
Again, I'm not sure what this was all about but by the look on the woman's face as she was ramming the other car tells me that this was personal.
I'll keep updated on any future episodes of "It's Never A Dull Moment Where I Live".
