Eagan Thieves Caught, Thanks To Vigilant Resident

EAGAN, Minn. (WCCO) — Eagan police caught two burglary suspects Monday, because a concerned neighbor monitored them on a camera and called police, authorities said.

The suspects broke into an underground garage at the Shannon Glen condos at around 5:30 a.m., police said.

But this is the amazing part: A woman who lives in the condominiums just happened to be looking at the closed-circuit camera when she spotted two people who looked suspicious, so she called the cops.

If the woman hadn’t called the cops, the suspects might have gotten away, police said.

“They were pulling on door handles and trying to get into cars and possibly stealing things out of vehicles,” said Eagan police officer Danielle Anselment.

The woman stayed on the phone with police until officers arrived at the condominium complex. She then helped officers find the suspects with details about where they were and when, police said.

After some searching, police arrested 25-year-old Andrew Remer and 33-year-old Heidi Fox. Both are expected to be charged with burglary, police said.

Police said they believe the pair broke into a lock box to get access to the garage.

Police also want to remind people not to leave expensive items in cars.

    To the prosecutor, do NOT let these WHITE ‘suspects’ off easily. A CRIME is a CRIME, no matter what color their skin is, prosecute them to the MAX. Will this pass the ‘cco moderation board, or will this be seen as ‘racist’??

    1. Doc says:

      It probably shouldn’t have passed the ‘CCO moderation board due to lack of relevance.

    We need to bring back poor farms and work houses where people like this can be productive.

    If they brought back sterilization theres a tan race that would go extinct.

    Why are people such as this not executed? Does anybody think this was just a mistake on their part? Anybody think this was their first time doing this? What hope is there for them to do anything positive in their lives? I don’t understand the point in keeping them alive and warehoused. Who is that helping?

    1. Grynch says:

      probably because there are certain crimes that are deserving of being punishable by death… burglary not being one of them.

      1. jackactionhero says:

        Why do you feel that way? So burglary is ok?

        1. Ron says:

          Burglary is not okay but crimes against property can be fixed. Death or serious injury deserve a more severe punishment. Execution? Come on overreation guy..

    She is the stupid one who stole the Tow Truck in Bloomingon a few years ago. It’s all about DRUG $$$$. Keep them in Jail…we don’t need them running around the streets.

    1. jackactionhero says:

      Why jail? Why do you condone warehousing people instead of terminating a worthless existence? What’s the point?

  6. wow guys says:

    yep thats my lil bro and his girlfriend mabey my mom should have been starilized but she wasnt and i bet there is one in ur family too . unfortunaly there is kids involved in this and yes she did steal the tow truck a couple years ago and yes they probly still do meth, but atleast they dont sit on the internet and comment on other peoples problems allllll day. all i worry about is my nephew. i dont care what happens to them anymore.

    1. jackactionhero says:

      Nope, no worthless clowns like that in MY family.

      So you think it’s better to rob and steal than to condemn that behavior on the Internet? Interesting perspective. Sounds like you might someday share a cell block with old Andy, eh?

      1. wow guys says:

        yeah , im a pretty good chick i’ve never been to jail and i havent tried meth so ur opinon is invalid. i just happen to share parents with an idiot. and so does your family.

        1. jackactionhero says:

          My opinion is invalid? What does that even mean?

          I’m an idiot because I think your drug addicted thief of a loser brother and his loser girlfriend should be hanging at the end of a rope? LOL

          Sounds like you and your brother have more in common than you’re willing to admit.

    Where’s Kevin and his “Ins’t diversity grand?!” message (LMAO)
    On another note, this chick is kinda hot😉

    1. jackactionhero says:

      You need to raise your standards. There is nothing attractive about that “woman.”

      I wonder how many teeth she has left…

    These two folks have been living this life because of choice. Each has had a lot of help from the system and families to get on the path to be good parents and people in society. I am glad they are not good at it and continually get caught. My heart aches for the two kids that are involved with their folks’ choices. So sad!
