Suspicious Activity on Trail On the evening of Monday, June 25, 2007, officers with the South Lake Minnetonka Police Department (SLMPD) responded to a suspicious activity call involving an adult male peering into windows of a house from the hiking/biking trail adjacent to the Lodge Lane neighborhood. A person matching the caller’s description was located by SLMPD officers and was found to have a monocular (distance viewing device) in his pants pocket. The ongoing investigation by the SLMPD may result in the suspect being formally charged.
The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department and the Three Rivers Park District Police Department have increased patrols on area trails, but homeowners are urged to close window blinds and curtains at dusk to discourage “window peepers”.
If you see suspicious activity anywhere near your home, report it immediately by calling 911. If you have crime prevention questions or concerns of a non-urgent nature, contact Community Service/ Crime Prevention Officer Dave Hohertz at (952) 960-1619.
