Supervised Release Isn't Working Out So Well As Ronald Desean Harris Is Arrested On A Raft Of Charges...

MN DOC mug shot, therefore public domain, blog post by John Hoff

Ronald Desean Harris, DOB 2/28/87, sits in jail this moment, facing pending charges from the Plymouth Police Department, the Minnetonka Police Department, and the Washington County Sheriff's Office. His court hearings on the charges are on April 24.

One of the potential charges is burglary, another is possessing burglary tools, another is receiving stolen property.

Good thinking, Harris. If you're going to (allegedly) burglarize people, go where they have GOOD STUFF! Plymouth, baby!

Harris was already on supervised release in Carver County, and his mug shot can be found on the Minnesota Department of Corrections website offender locator.

Harris reportedly lives at 3306 Bryant Ave. N., a rental property owned by Charlene T. Erickson, whose address is listed as 1709 Lyn Curve Ave. N, in North Minneapolis.

I know this is an old post I would just like to inform you that Ronald Desean Harris Nor his family resides at 3306 Bryant Ave North! actually he had never lived here his Mother did! well that family moved out Mid September & I am now living here and renovating the house! I am a family member of the lady who owns this home! & I don't like the fact that you posted Miss Erickson as the owner but I don't under stand why you felt you needed too Post her home address!! Nobody needs too know anymore information then that of the person you are writing about!! If I see anything negative about me or my family! I am living at the Bryant home while I fix it up and get the house up to code so we can either put it on the market or if I decide to purchase the property! but please take Mr Harris & his family off this address this is no longer being rented to that family! just in case anything should come up that links to him or the family!!! thank you very Much! Kristine Barfknecht.

Well, I used the most recent info that was available at the time I wrote the article and it's all accurate as far as I can tell, including the fact he was using that address as his home address. History is what it is, and I won't go changing it, altering it, or whitewashing it. History can be ADDED TO, as you have done with your comment, and that's really good enough.

Adding to the history of this! a little research into previous JNS Jail Roster postings apparently reveals three different occasions! where Ronald Desean Harris! apparently claimed! his address was 3306 Bryant Avenue North! Whether or not it was or wasn't!!!

Thank you, commenter, for adding that to the discussion. But those could have been extended stays in jail, not individual instances, couldn't they? Or did you look deeply enough to determine those were separate incarcerations?

The Jail Roster entries:

#1: 2012010057 HARRIS, RONALD.DESEAN 2/28/1987 3306 BRYANT AVE N, MINNEAPOLIS, MN 55412 4/13/2012.21:22

#2: 2012019930 HARRIS, RONALD.DESEAN 2/28/1987 3306 BRYANT AVE N, MINNEAPOLIS, MN 55412 7/21/2012.01:48

#3: 2013012996 HARRIS, RONALD.DESEAN 2/28/1987 3306 BRYANT AVE N, MINNEAPOLIS, MN 55412 5/15/2013.16:32

Which I did look at before commenting. Don't these entries seem to be three separate bookings into the Hennepin County Graybar Hotel? As in some sort of extended play urban version of Catch and Release? Mistakes do get made.

Just to be sure one could take a look at the listing of Minnesota Criminal/Traffic/Petty Case Records charges for this guy.

Standard disclaimer goes something like this: Innocent until found guilty in a court of law, not all charges result in anything, some perps are found innocent of some charges, some charges are plea bargained away, some charges are dropped, it is always possible to accumulate more charges before previous charges are resolved, and so on.

After a quick look, here see for yourself!:( I copy pasted the whole thing here!) Your HTML cannot be accepted: Must be at most 4,096 characters

If this isn't what catch and release looks like

Johnny Northside! said...

These do appear to be three separate bookings. His ongoing use of that address can't be disputed. The record is the record.

Events apparently leading up to the third JNS Jail Roster appearance for Ronald Desean Harris:

Read: Multi-City Police Pursuit of Burglary Suspects Ends in Southwest Minneapolis

..." “Officers observed three males matching the description of the suspects in the vehicle and initiated a felony stop of the vehicle,” Laurel Slawson of the Maple Grove Police Department wrote in the complaint.

The driver, later identified as Ronald Desean Harris, “put the car in reverse and fled,” according to the complaint. Officers pursued with “lights and sirens through multiple jurisdictions”"...

If the Barfknechts are so worried about what people think of them, they shouldn't rent out sub-code houses to Section 8 losers. Oh wait, but then they won't rake in thousands of taxpayer dollars every month.

Describes the demise of public housing...and where all those displaced people end up?

Kristine Barfknecht said...

Wow Someone obviously has way too much time on their hands!! My 2 concerns were I don't get why he felt he needed to post the home address of the property owner? That information was irrelevant to the situation I can see why you would name her as the property owner but what was the point of publicly publishing her home address, she rented a home to Miss Harris not too Miss Harris's son,Miss Harris lived at the home for approx.4 years & was a good tenant she never had any problems with Miss Harris! So what good would it have done to do a background check? Ronald Harris was not renting from her his mother was so truthfully Ronald Harris was never even heard of until this! & To the person hiding behind the anonymous name You have no right to assume...see your talking this shit about whether or not a person was convicted or not convicted innocent until proven guilty blah blah blah all that shit coming out your mouth you assumed my cousin rented the property out to rake in thousands of tax dollars that was a very uncalled for assumption She bought the home with the intention of flipping it I'm sure you know how that works well she decided she would try renting it out see how that goes, so she then did all the things that needed to be done before selling it but instead of selling she rented it out I believe this was 4 years ago I'm not really sure but like I said she never had any problems with the tenant up until this last year then the rent was behind and problems started to occur I can't get into detail because I don't know the facts or any detailed information because it's not my business I'm assuming the reason Miss Harris had too move had something to do with section 8 housing I think instead of having to evict the tenant & then having the problem of getting an evicted tenant to move out of the home she maybe didn't comply with the section 8 codes so the tenant had to find somewhere else too live! Don't quote me on that because like I said I am not exactly sure why Miss Harris had too move But My cousin the person who owns the said property asked me if I would occupy the house until it is ready to sell because of the fact this is not a good neighborhood and we all know what happens to vacant houses! So this brings me to my 2nd concern Ronald Harris being associated to this address I have not had any problems nor do I want any problems linking him to this address I do not know him or his family My Fiance & I are living here for the time being we are I guess you would call it renovating it?? I don't know if that's the proper term anyways we are fixing whatever needs fixing painting cleaning repairing the entire interior of the home in order to put the home on the market! This house was not rented out with bad intentions, My cousin thought she was doing a good thing & helping someone who needed a home she wasn't trying to get rich off taxpayers dollars your comments to me are implying she is some kind of slumlord!! That's not the case this is the only property besides her home that she owns & she doesn't plan on renting this house out again she just wants to sell it! So like I said once the house is done I will decide whether or not I want to buy the home myself or put it on the market! So "Anonymous" you can keep any negative comments to yourself & Johnny I just wanted you to know that Ronald Harris nor his family are affiliated with this house any longer & by the looks of that rap sheet I hope my door doesn't get kicked in by MPLS PD!! Looks Like this kid knows how to get in trouble! WOW....Have a good day!!

When bad stuff happens at properties in North Minneapolis, I will print not only the name of the property owner but their home address in whatever perfect and safe little suburb they reside in, slumlording off our community. I have been doing it for years, I will continue to do it, and I don't feel any need to justify it. Why I do it speaks for itself. Because these are the people behind the property who are responsible, and if somebody wanted to, for example, go picket their house they would probably like to know where they live.

But more commonly it simply documents the problem. Absentee property owners from safe and affluent suburbs sucking the blood out of our community with their slumlording. I will document the problem with specificity, right down to their street address.

OOOOOH.

And the reason you publish this information is because it serves what purpose?

Tired of explaining and re-explaining it to deliberately thick-witted trolls. Figure it out.

Which addresses from the JNS Jail Roster are you interested in? If any.

Anonymous said...

Apparently you are jealous that the landlords can afford to live in a nice safe neighborhood, while you live in the, well... slums.
Maybe you should try being a landlord and see how difficult it is to find quality tenants, and deal with complaints from nutjobs like well - you, before you bitch and moan. Considering the number of complaints filed against your property (available from inspections), maybe you should look in that really tall mirror you have.

Johnny Northside! said...

The addresses that interest me are the addresses of any and all Northside properties, their histories, what is happening there, what patterns are happening that impact the community.

The NORTHSIDE addresses.

Kristine Barfknecht said...

What Should Be Mis-Adventures Of Johnny Northside you are just so pathetic all you are is a condescending asshole! you don't give too shits about NORTHSIDE you were probably raised in some nice quiet little suburb!! I am a true Northsider born & raised 29th & Colfax Ave N. & I can't even believe I actually Commented on your stupid blog Someday somebody will catch you slippin Mr Hoff!!!

Johnny Northside! said...

You're not even close to guessing where I grew up. I grew up on a rural farm where we didn't have indoor plumbing until I was in fifth grade.

Good luck with your slumlord-ery. We are all watching and, to some degree, will be commenting.

Johnny Northside! said...

I am rejecting a comment which is nothing more than insulting words directed at the general appearance of Kristine Barfknecht.

Yeah, 6:10, we must all be jealous of scummy slumlords. Sorry, I wouldn't want to be anything like your ilk. The people who come in here and buy up property hand over fist and suck every last drop of equity out of them to finance living like pigs in shit in Boca Raton, Prior Lake, what have you, are parasites, plain and simple. I don't give a crap how hard you think it is to do your damn job right and manage properties in a way that isn't completely deleterious to the rest of the block. Oh boo hoo, cry me a river. So you think it's hard finding good tenants? Maybe you should get off the Section 8 gravy train then. You don't like painting your buildings a color something other than the ass brown special you put together with recycling center paint? (yeah, I saw your comment on NXNS), then get a different profession. Oh, but that would require an education or a skill set beyond signing your X on a contract-for-deed or scrawling a phone number and "I buy house" on a rotten piece of road litter. You people are some of the laziest SOBs to walk the face of the earth; it makes me wonder how many of 600 lbders that require forklifts to get to the hospital are actually landlords.
