For the second time in five days, Duluth police have arrested suspects after citizens reported seeing suspicious behavior.
Police arrested two burglary suspects in Morgan Park about 1 a.m. Wednesday after an officer was flagged down by a woman who reported seeing people prowling vehicles in the alley of the 1100 block of 86th Avenue West. The woman reported that the prowlers were last seen running toward Goodfellowship Hall and that her husband was trying to see where they went.
The officer found the husband near Goodfellowship Hall. He reported seeing the suspects run toward the building and hearing banging coming from the building. As the officer approached the building, a 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, both from Duluth, ran from the building. The man obeyed the officer's command to stop, but the teen continued to run. He was, however, detained by the husband, and the two were arrested without further incident.
The two allegedly had broken into and burglarized Goodfellowship Hall and had been prowling vehicles in the area. The man is lodged at the St. Louis County Jail pending formal charges of burglary, criminal damage to property, possession of stolen property and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The boy is lodged at the Arrowhead Juvenile Center on charges of burglary, criminal damage to property, theft, possession of stolen property, underage consumption, possession of drug paraphernalia and curfew violation.
A search of Minnesota court records did not find records of past charges against the man.
On Saturday, police arrested a 28-year-old Superior man after receiving a call about someone stealing items from a parked car in the 600 block of 99th Avenue West. A search of court records in district court in Duluth did not find charges filed yet for Saturday's incident, but found 21 past criminal or traffic matters involving the suspect. He also is named in 14 cases in Wisconsin Circuit Court in Douglas and Bayfield Counties.
