Cops: Jane Doe Breaks Into Home, Puts Up Blinds, Refuses To Cooperate
CBS Minnisota ^ | July 13, 2012

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Investigators in Fridley say they need help solving one of the most bizarre cases they’ve ever seen.

Police say they arrested a woman who refuses to tell them who she is. She won’t give her fingerprints, And she has no identification.

Authorities found her hiding in a closet in someone else’s home holding scissors and a cell phone.

The arrest happened Monday after the new owners of a home on 98 Rice Creek Way in Fridley returned from their July 4 vacation and couldn’t get in.

The place was supposed to be empty for renovations, but the locks had been changed, the lights were on, and drapes or blinds were up covering the windows.

I don’t know anyone in Minn, but looking at the video, she’s black and unattractive.

I’m sure someone will ID her.

She won’t give her fingerprints? Might I suggest that the jail personal forcibly ink her fingers and then press to paper? Problem solved.

A set of pruning shears would obtain the fingerprints rather quickly.

Minneapolis police must live a life of innocence if stumbling upon a squatter is the most bizarre thing they have ever seen.

This is going on in Texas. Squatters have been taking over houses that have been abandoned due to non-payment claiming an old law says that if a property has been vacant for a certain amount of time, then they can move in and claim it. One guy was giving classes on how to do this. Banks have had a heck of a time getting them out.

It’s called adverse possession.

Cop #1: It was the most bizarre case I ever saw.

Cop #2: Yeah, she was in the house.

Cop #1: Alone. And the house was being renovated.

Cop #3: AND she had scissors. And a cell phone.

Cop #2: Man. What is this world coming to....

Cop #3: I just don't know any more

Cop #1, 2, and 3: It was the most bizarre case we have ever seen.

This is Minneapolis, man! It’s surprising some bleeding heart hasn’t filed suit against the police and the rightful homeowner for disrupting this vermin’s parasitic lifestyle. The only people police are allowed to browbeat and intimidate are suburban male speeders.

Police say they arrested a woman who refuses to tell them who she is. She won’t give her fingerprints

HUH? I was a Desk Sergeant at a County Prison for 5 years. I had numerous prisoners brought in stating that they would not give finger prints. Everyone did.
What the hell is going on in this Country???
You want this shit’s finger prints call me. I will gladly take them for you!

The house wasn't abandoned though. The owners, who had just purchased it, were on vacation and it went through renovations.

She also had a car stolen.

A fellow employee had a renter who wouldn't vacate the premises. He paid the local Hell's Angels to persuade the occupant to leave and never return. Money well spent.

Adverse possession is theft with the blessing of a mentally ill judge. Any judge that rules that way should be removed from the bench.

Check Democrat voter registration rolls for a clue about who she is.

Jane Doe jailed in Anoka County is identified by fingerprints, police say

The Anoka County sheriff’s office believes it has identified a woman who refused to tell authorities her name after she was arrested for squatting in an unoccupied Fridley house. Her name is believed to be Tammy Antoinette Thomas. (Photo courtesy of Anoka County sheriff’s office)
Known until now among Anoka County Jail staff as Jane Doe, investigators believe they know the name of the inmate who has been refusing to reveal her identity.

After taking the woman’s fingerprints off a clean glass provided to her at the jail and running the sample through a federal database, authorities found a match Friday, July 27, according to Lt. Paul Lenzmeier, spokesman for the Anoka County sheriff’s office.

Though she refuses to confirm it, the woman is believed to be 37-year-old Tammy Antoinette Thomas.

“We don’t know where she is from but her ... name came from a Texas arrest,” Lenzmeier said. He added that the search also uncovered several arrest warrants out of Wisconsin for Thomas, but he said he wasn’t sure what the warrants were for.

Thomas has been in Anoka County Jail since July 13, four days after she allegedly was found squatting in a vacant Fridley home that was in the process of being renovated. She reportedly had hung sheets over the windows, changed the locks and appeared to be storing clothes and food in the home when one of the owners returned to check on the house. A stolen car also was found parked in the garage.

Thomas also gave the name of the 2-year-old daughter of the owner of the car she is accused of stealing when asked to identify herself in Anoka County court, the complaint said.

She faces charges of trespassing, motor vehicle theft, theft and two counts of identity theft.

Having her name hopefully will help investigators piece together more of her story, Lenzmeier said.
