CN: 19028530 – Possession of Stolen Property
On September 10, Roseville Police were called to Play It Again Sports regarding a male who was alleged to show up and attempt to sell stolen sports equipment. The victim had his vehicle broken into the night before in Minneapolis and was calling around to stores to see if anyone had shown up to sell his equipment. The Play It Again Sports in St. Paul said that a male came into their location with equipment that matched the victim’s description but they refused to buy it. They told the suspect to try the Roseville location. The victim went to the Roseville location and saw the suspect ride up on his bicycle. When the suspect recognized the victim’s vehicle he took off. While Roseville Officers were gathering this information, a female overheard the conversation and told officers where they might be able to find the suspect. Roseville PD Detectives and IMPACT officers were assisting in locating the suspect. Through the sharing of information and photos between officers, Roseville PD Detective Toran located the suspect exiting Guitar Center. When Det. Toran attempted to stop the suspect, the suspect took off on foot. A short time later, IMPACT officers located the suspect at the Rosedale Mall Bus Station and identified him as Blake Dotson. Through coordinated efforts between Patrol and Investigations Officers, Dotson was arrested and charged with Gross Misdemeanor Receiving Stolen Property and Misdemeanor Evading Arrest.

On September 27, Roseville Police responded to multiple reports of burglary and theft in the second district. All incidents happened in a close proximity and during a short span of time. That same day, Ramsey County Deputies were dispatched to a call of a female slumped over the steering wheel of a vehicle. When deputies arrived they discovered that the female was the same suspect from the Roseville incidents earlier that day. They determined this by locating multiple stolen items that belonged to Roseville residents in the vehicle she was driving. Ramsey County Deputies arrested the female on drug related charges and possession of stolen property. Roseville PD Detectives were notified of the female’s arrest and that the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office had recovered some of the stolen items from the vehicle. With the permission of the vehicle owner, Roseville PD Detective Sergeant Engh and IMPACT officers searched the vehicle the suspect was driving for additional stolen items. This turned into recovering many more stolen items. Detectives were then tasked with coordinating the return of multiple stolen items to victims. It was later determined that, in one day, the female suspect had committed six burglaries in the city of Roseville. She had also allegedly committed multiple thefts in other cities around the metro area. Charges were submitted by Roseville PD and are pending with the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office.
