Case #17-246073 UPDATE On October 23rd, 2017 Ramsey Police Officers were dispatched to the area of 5650 Alpine Drive NW (Ramsey Fire Station #2) on a report of a pipe bomb found in the woods between that location and the power sub-station to the east. The device contained explosive material, and was safely decommissioned by the bomb squad. A photograph of this approximate 3.5 inch long pipe bomb is attached to this posting. During the investigation two search warrants were executed, which led to the arrest and charging of two suspects; 24 year old Jacob Daniel Hall and 25 year old Jennifer Marie Stuer. Ramsey Police Investigators interviewed both suspects who admitted to the explosive, as well as several other crimes. It was not until interviews were conducted that investigators learned that over the past year these two suspects have built and detonated or attempted to detonate approximately six explosives. Of these, only one was reported to police. This was after a contractor reported damage to a vacant home under construction. In attempting to determine why no residents or police were aware of the other explosives, the suspects reported this was due to the other devices being set off in rural parts of the city, away from people. The suspects were present during the detonation of all of the devices. At this point there is no evidence to support an ongoing threat to public safety. It is not believed this is related to the bomb threat case (17-123486) from the Comfort Suites hotel on 6/5/2017. The dozens of other crimes these suspects are responsible for include; stealing holiday light projectors, garden and lawn ornaments, and shooting metal balls with sling shots at garage doors and fences. If you believe you have been the victim of any of the above-mentioned crimes and have not filed a police report already, please call (763) 427-1212 and make a report. Our investigators will be working with the victims of these crimes to return their stolen items as promptly as possible. Overview photographs of the recovered stolen items are attached to this posting. These two suspects were responsible for victimizing Ramsey residents on a variety of levels, and we are thankful for the witnesses who assisted police with information leading to their arrests. The prompt response by patrol officers followed up by this thorough investigation has made our community safer.
