A 50-year-old Minneapolis man is accused of using a tow truck to steal vehicles across the Twin Cities over the course of four months and scrap the cars for money, according to charges filed Wednesday in Dakota County Court.
Friends gathered for a candlelight vigil at the Maple Grove Arboretum Saturday night to remember the two people killed after a high-speed chase on Highway 212 last week. Police shot and killed 36-year-old Matthew Serbus of Brooklyn Center and 34-year-old Dawn Pfister of Delavan, Wis. Their deaths followed a chase with police though Eden Prairie on Highway 212 on Feb. 7. “It’s just really shocking,” said Serbus’ friend Sarah Higgins. “You never think that’s going to happen to someone you know.”
The two people who were killed after leading police on a high-speed chase through Eden Prairie, Minn. were also suspects in an earlier auto theft case, according to criminal complaints.
