Police: 2 suspects in custody after crash involving stolen vehicle with ammunition inside
Friday, Bloomington police said they have taken two suspects into custody and reopened an intersection following an early-morning crash involving a stolen vehicle with ammunition inside.
According to police, at about 5 a.m., officers received a report of a vehicle crashing into a light pole in the parking lot of a business along the 400 block of American Boulevard West.
Upon arrival, officers found the vehicle was not occupied and learned the vehicle had been reported as stolen to the Brooklyn Center Police Department.
