Dinkytown burglar caught on local apartment roof

Police arrested a 39-year-old man Monday in Dinkytown after he stole money from a pub and climbed onto a local apartment rooftop, according to the police report.

Adam Lanoue, a University student and manager of Blarney Pub and Grill, chased the suspect, according to the police report, after he stole money from the restaurant in broad daylight.

The chase ended nine minutes later on the roof of 1415 Fifth Street S.E., where police apprehended the suspect.

The suspect gained access to the roof of the Cardinal Properties apartment complex and was still holding the money and burglary tools when the police arrested him and took him to Hennepin County Jail, according to the police report.

Both Blarney and Cardinal apartments denied comment.
