St. Francis Residents...

16 posts in this topic

I know there are a few of you on here. I had a motor stolen from my place late sunday night or monday. 35hp Johnson long shaft. They took it right off my boat as it sat in the driveway. I can not afford to replace it, and would just like it back. I just got the boat fixed up so I could take my daughter out and now, no motor. mad

If anyone hears anything, send me an email or talk to the local PD. Like I said, I would just like it back.

That really sucks man. My parents house is just north of Bethel on Wiskey road. Theres so many thieves in the areas. Probably methheads. Good luck getting your motor back.

241st and Roanokee. Far NW corner of town.

It is things like this that take away a big level of trust in people. There is never a time when there is not someone here, never. Whoever took this motor knew it was there, and knew they could get it, thus 2 guys. I did make some calls to my direct neighbors to let them know to lock stuff up, but we all know locks are for honest people.

I know more than a few people around the area. I will give a shout out for everyone to keep their eyes open. Is it a specific color? Anything to distinguish it from any other motors?

I am near Long Lake. I will keep my eyes open around there.

Any distinct scratches/marks?

Neighbor and gooseman, that does really suck! I live near Coon Lake and we have our fair share of low-lifes in the area. I keep my junk locked up in the garage but I still dont feel safe.

We dont have a police department so we depend on Anoka Cty. for police. They must be stretched pretty thin since we cant seem to get sheriffs office to even enforce the speed limit.

Neighbor, your motor sounds pretty distinctive and should be easy to spot. I will keep my eyes peeled since we get a fair number of rigs going by the house. Good Luck!

Some more info to the area residents.

My Mother in Law lives in the "Community" just west of County Market. They reported 7 thefts over the weekend including an expensive GPS unit out of a Poice Officers car.

Seems like a crew might be working the area so keep an eye open for suspicious people and merchandise.

My dogs bark at every stinkin noise they hear at night. And I get up and look out the windows and sometimes let them out to check things. This is a time I'm thankful for that.

This year the dogs will have back up. wink

I just got off the phone with the investigator with SFPD. He said that northern anoka co. has "exploded" with theft right now. Doing all the tricks, stealing from your yard when you are home, taking boats, motors, trailers, campers, they are even getting the universal door openers and driving around poping garaged doors.

Not good.

I have seen this explosion myself. Around here(on Coon Lake) a few residents around the lake have experienced a big hike in theft. We recently had 3 cars broken into(not much was stolen, but it still was stolen). Plus I am always on the look out for suspicious looking vehicles I have never seen around. We have a pretty good community watch program going on, but its not enough to deter the criminals. I make sure to keep my eyes on the neighbors and hope they do the same for me.

Born2Fish, Are you talking about the east side of Coon or the South or West? I am on the west side away from the lake.

North side....Tri Oaks area. I have heard that they have had these kind of problems here for a while. Every month or so they get a few car break ins or garage break ins.
