Big Lake Police Department News

.....And if you can’t afford Orono, you could always move to Big Lake - Minnesota's 2nd Safest City with a population over 10,000 residents!!!!! The rankings were calculated by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, a trade group representing alarm companies and contractors. It charted Minnesota’s 84 cities with populations over 10,000, giving extra weight to violent crimes (felony assault, murder, rape, and robbery) as opposed to property crimes, and factoring them on a per capita basis. There appears to be no singular link between demographics and safety, though the entire Top 10 share at least one of two traits: They’re either affluent or they sit in the exurbs and beyond, apparently too far away for the feloniously inclined to drive. Alas, taking up residence in the former won’t come cheap. The median-priced home in Orono runs a daunting $715,000. Vacant lots can go for as much as $385,000, and starter homes begin at just below $400,000. Multimillion-dollar shacks are the rule rather than the exception. Big Lake offers a much better deal for the safety-conscious on a budget. Its median home price is just $215,000, which will buy you a styleless yet perfectly respectable house in a subdivision. But Big Lake’s also 40 miles from Minneapolis, meaning your commute may require extra provisions and a team of Sherpas every time it snows. https://www.alarms.org/safest-cities-in-minnesota-2018/ #BIGLAKESAFE

Congratulations Sergeant Hayen and Bruno! Sergeant Hayen and Canine Bruno recently completed their annual testing in West Fargo, for Narcotic Detector Dog Certifications! As a part of this process, our canine team must successfully locate narcotics in a variety of locations including in vehicles and buildings. The secret to any successful canine competition is a great nights rest. Here you can see Bruno taking in a night of down time prior to the testing process! Excellent work!

AWESOME WORK OFFICER TYLER SINCLAIR!!!! This email was received regarding actions undertaken by Officer Tyler Sinclair on a serious crash recently. I am a paramedic at Centracare. I would like to recognize Officer Tyler Sinclair. Last evening we had a call on highway 10 where the patient ended up being critical. Once we got the patient into the truck, the patient was found to have a serious wound that required continuous pressure. I opened the doors and requested an extra set of hands. Officer Tyler jumped right in and was a huge help! He held pressure on the site and continued to talk to the patient and calm them down (and keep them awake), allowing me to complete my tasks. I then asked if he would be willing to continue to hold pressure on our way to St. Cloud hospital. He was more than willing to help any way possible. Honestly, without officer Tyler's selflessness, I do not believe that the patient would have made it to the hospital alive. #BLPDPROUD

A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE WILTS LEGACY LLC FOR THEIR $1,000 DONATION TO OUR UAV PROGRAM!!!! The Wilts Legacy LLC wanted to donate to the Big Lake Drone Fund as a means to honor Thomas Dean Wilts (son of Harlan and Muriel Wilts). Tommy was a 1979 Big Lake High School graduate that started his law enforcement career at Sherburne County as a Jailer/Dispatcher. Shortly after that Tom moved to Flandreau SD and earned his Law Enforcement License as a Moody County Deputy. Tom worked several SD law enforcement jobs including a stint with the SD Criminal Investigation Division where he worked several special task force and undercover operations. Eventually Tom moved to Sturgis SD, where he served as the Meade County Chief Deputy the last 20 years of his career before retiring in 2015. Tom passed away April 19th, 2017 of cancer just 5 days short of his 56th birthday. "The surviving members of the Wilts Legacy LLC; Robert Wilts (brother), William Wilts (brother), Jamisin Bahle (daughter), Blake Rave (son) are grateful to the community of Big Lake for the support it has given their family and feel fortunate to support this program as it would most certainly be one Tommy would feel strongly about. The Big Lake police department can feel proud of this program for its vision with regard to serving the community and especially it's potential to mitigate risk to police officers in some situations. We wish you the best of luck!" William (Billy) Wilts. Thank you so much for your generous donation!!! Chief J. Scharf

Incident Number: 18-421 Date/Time: 1/26/2018 Suspect Arrested on Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges On January 18th, an Investigator with the Mendota Heights Police Department requested assistance from Big Lake Police in locating a runaway juvenile, which had been missing from their City since January 6th. Officers checked the address she had been tracked to on Traverse Lane, but were unable to locate anyone. On January 19th, Investigators from Mendota Heights Police, along with Big Lake Police, executed a search warrant at this location. The missing runaway juvenile (victim) was located in makeshift living quarters under a staircase. The victim was subsequently taken into custody, and interviewed about what had taken place. During that interview, the victim, who is under the age of 16, disclosed that sexual contact had occurred on multiple occasions with a suspect identified as; Zachary T. McGriff (Age 25 – Big Lake). The victim also disclosed that she had been living with McGriff for several weeks. In an interview with Investigator Rich Berg and a Mendota Heights Investigator, McGriff admitted to; meeting the victim online, knowing she was a runaway, making no effort to contact her parents or law enforcement, and to engaging in sexual contact with her on several occasions. McGriff also admitted that that victim had been staying under the stairs so his children would not see her when they were in the home. Following the interview with Investigators, McGriff was arrested and booked into the Sherburne County Jail. McGriff was charged by criminal complaint with; Felony - 3rd Degree Criminal Sexual Contact (Victim Under 16), Felony - 4th Degree Criminal Sexual Contact (Suspect More than 48 Months Older than Victim), and Gross Misdemeanor - Contributing to Need for Child Protective Services. This case is ongoing, and a continuing investigation jointly between the Mendota Heights and Big Lake Police Departments with additional criminal charges possible.
