A prowler and/or window peeper may be on the loose in Sartell.
At about 10 p.m. on the night of Monday, Feb. 4, the Sartell Police Department received two calls from residents concerned about a possible prowler. One caller said he observed fresh footprints in the snow leading from the road to one of his windows of his home on Mockingbird Loop. Another caller, about an hour later, told police about fresh footprints by a window and noise outside the window of their home on Birch Circle.
In the early morning hours of Tuesday, when it was still dark, a police officer was checking the area for more evidence of a possible prowler and saw fresh footprints in front of a home in the 1400 block of 9th Avenue N. and footprints in nearby yards.
Police Chief Jim Hughes is asking all residents to watch for such signs of a prowler – noises and footprints – and to report anything amiss immediately to the police department. Call 251-8186. If residents see someone suspicious looking through a window, they should dial 911.
