Wanted man apprehended in city
The Brooklyn Center Police Department, after learning its suspect might be in Princeton, contacted the Princeton Police Department requesting assistance in locating the 30-year-old male, said Sgt. Joe Backlund of the Princeton Police Department.
After their own investigation, Princeton officers located the suspect’s vehicle at a residence in the 1000 block of 8th Avenue N. Officers established contact with a resident of the home, located the suspect, and apprehended him without incident, Backlund said. The suspect was also wanted on a domestic assault warrant out of Hennepin County.
When authorities learned the suspect might be in the north Princeton area, the school district was notified, which resulted in a lockdown of North Elementary School and Princeton Middle School.
The suspect was transported to the Mille Lacs County Jail, Backlund said. He was later transferred to Hennepin County.
