Police Chief Greg Weber: Alleged Robberies on Anderson Lakes Parkway Did Not Occur
Over the past few months, and dating back to 2015, our Department has been investigating three armed robbery incidents reported to have occurred in Eden Prairie.
It is important to me to keep residents informed about crime in our City, because an informed community is safer and more trusting. For that reason, we have aimed to maintain a degree of transparency about these cases, without jeopardizing the investigations.
On Oct. 9, 2019, we provided an update:
After making an arrest, Eden Prairie Police turned the investigation over to the Hennepin County Attorney, who filed criminal charges Friday, Nov. 15:
With the announcement of these charges, I want the Eden Prairie community to know the armed robberies reported to have taken place along Anderson Lakes Parkway on Oct. 25, 2015, Aug. 20, 2019, and Aug. 30, 2019, did not occur.
I commend the Eden Prairie Police officers, investigators and all who assisted with these cases, for their hard work and diligence. I also want to thank the Eden Prairie community for your trust and patience as we worked through this complicated and sensitive investigation.
