According to a reliable source in a position to know, Navarr Jodiah Ross recently entered a guilty plea for his misdeeds in the Thanksgiving Day "turd burglary" incident on the 1500 block of Hillside Avenue North. (Unknown which of the burglars is pictured above) Ross pled guilty to trespass in the incident on Hillside Ave. N. but guilty to a felony in another case.
This is the final plea in the arrest of seven turd burglars and/or fecal trespassers and means none of the neighbors who assisted in the dramatic chase and capture will be forced to attend a trial, and neither will the victim of the burglary.
The name of the youngest turd burglar, a mere 12 years old, never appeared in court paperwork. The other names made their way to this blogger.
The incident took place on the block where City Councilman Don Samuels lives. Samuels, who is now running for mayor, was asked by neighbors to speak to the boys during their arrest. The councilman lectured the boys on the responsibilities of manhood, which generally mean protecting women and children instead of robbing and victimizing them. It was a speech that I would like to see amplified from the bully pulpit of Mayor of Minneapolis and directed at the crime and mayhem in North Minneapolis.
