Marquail Townsend Sitting In Jail, Charged With Burglary Of My Northside Neighbors, While JNS Blog Makes Free With His Facebook Photos...

Marquail Townsend (who goes by "Mula Montana" on Facebook, unable to even correctly spell the word "moolah") has been sitting in jail since May 9, charged with one burglary but strongly suspected by my neighbors in others. He was the subject of an earlier blog post which included the criminal complaint against him.

As promised, here is the public airing of his lifestyle choices and, as a free bonus, additional facts about where he reportedly lives and the suspicions of neighbors about additional possible acts of burglary...

According to both the jailhouse roster and the criminal complaint against him, Townsend resides at 3334 Oliver Ave. N. This is a homesteaded property owned by a family member with the same last name. It was the subject of a complaint on the 4th Precinct CARE Task Force Website. Information about this issue appears on Google but I was unable to find it upon the actual CARE website.

Garbage & Debris at 3334 OLIVER AVE N - 4th Precinct CARE Task ...
Address, 3334 OLIVER AVE N, Constant garbage overflowing from the trash bins into driveway & alley. Trash for the past three weeks has an overpowering ...

The address also made an appearance upon an old JNS Blog Jailhouse Roster, as the reported address of one Rodney NMN Brown, born 10/18/1974. Information on MNCIS would suggest he does, in fact, have a middle name of "Lee." Here is the rather extensive rap sheet of Mr. Brown, not all of which may represent actual convictions:

But back to Marquail Townsend. Neighbors suspect him of being involved in other burglaries. One resident told me he saw Townsend pull two flat screen televisions from his garage and put them in a car, but the car was gone before police arrived. Neighbors suspect Townsend was keeping an eye on the comings and goings of neighbors and striking when they were not home.

These neighbors have really done their homework, by the way, not only pointing me to Townsend's facebook page but also an online article describing his alleged involvement in another burglary, click here for that article from the Fulton Neighborhood, but I'm going to reproduce the information below just in case that Fulton blog ever goes away.

November 11  At about 9:10 a.m., officers responded to a report of a forced-entry burglary at an occupied home on the 1300 block of West 47th St in Lynnhurst.  A homeowner, who was in the basement, heard the sound of glass breaking.  He went to the second floor to investigate and saw two male suspects jump from a window.  One of the suspects, 28-year-old Tyrone Wilson Kellum of 4145 5th Ave South, broke both of his ankles and was crawling through the yard.  The homeowner demanded that he stop until officers arrived.  The other suspect, 19-year-old Marquail Taijon Townsend of 3334 Oliver Ave North was apprehended a few blocks away.  Kellum, who  was transported to a hospital by ambulance, had been released from jail on November 7 after being charged with receiving/concealing stolen property from three recent burglaries in Minneapolis.  Townsend is on parole from prison for 1st degree burglary of an occupied dwelling and is being held without bail.
This little article begs the question: Well, what does Townsend's criminal record look like? Surprisingly, he has only faced two charges of jaywalking BESIDES a burglary conviction in 2010.

But the record of his conviction (27-CR-09-54301) is very odd. It seems like he was sentenced to 50 months in prison, with credit for 234 days in jail. But apparently it was some sort of suspended sentence because this guy was out on the streets.

In fact, he was living large and documenting his life under the Facebook handle of Mula Montana. This photo, below, had a caption saying "no sleep, 7:30, vamp shit."

In the photo above, he's with somebody called "Leefy Leef" (sic) who he describes as a "brother." I assume Leefy Leef is some kind of tree enthusiast?

Or not.

Check out the interesting photo composite above. Is that drink PURPLE? Or does it just appear that way from the tinted quality of the photo? If I had to guess, though, it looks like the infamous PURPLE DRANK which keeps popping up in one story after another here on Johnny Northside.

Here's Marquail and his "crew" posing upon what appears to be a Minneapolis Police Department mobile camera. Note the house behind them is boarded. These kind of images just spur this blogger to fight harder for neighborhood revitalization. I feel like I want to go out and dial 911 and 311, like, right this minute.

I hope it makes my readership feel the same way.

It just wouldn't be a thug's facebook page without the obligatory photo of throwing a gang sign while smoking what appears to be a blunt.

Here's one of Marquail looking pretty in pink.

This photo, above, was labeled "The last two members." I'm not sure what that means, but if I had to guess it would mean at one time there was a gang, crew or "squad" associated with the territory of Circle Terrace.

And now most of them are dead or imprisoned due to their bad lifestyle choices.

I mean, if I had to guess.

As a taxpayer, have you ever wondered where your money for the WIC program goes? This photo of Marquail Townsend eating a jar of baby food may give you an answer.

In fairness to Marquail, (and I do have fair bones in my body) I've heard that peach flavored Gerber baby food is so good that many mommies make a point of buying a jar or two for themselves. Maybe Gerber should re-label that stuff and market it for adults.

Just an idea I'm throwing out there.

Pictured above, words to live by.

Well, words Marquail lives by. Just ask his neighbors.

This photo was labeled "working my way to recovery."

To which JNS blog says, well, best of luck with that.

And I'm not even using the sarcasm font.

Marquail is sitting in jail right now, apparently unable to post $40,000 bond. He has a court hearing on June 5 and a birthday coming up on June 12.

JNS blog says: Marquail? Consider this blog posting to be an early birthday present from your Northside neighbors.

Her name is Nyki Jacobson and she's on Facebook, too. Best of luck with stealing her away from this accused burglar while he is incarcerated. But maybe you would have more luck if you were polite and respectful and didn't refer to her as a "hoe."

"Leefy Leef" otherwise known as his real name Deontae Maurice Jackson of 3334 Oliver as well. He's got quite the rap sheet as well and interesting Facebook page.

Well Nyki you aren't going to see Marquail for a while with his guilty plea this morning to two different cases. Sentencing in October. Poor Mula. You picked a winner...

For the poster "claiming" to be Nyki, why do you spell your last name differently in both of your posts?

Leefy Leef (Deontae Maurice Jackson) got arrested for burglary and weapons charges on 1.22. Looks like he's in a lot of trouble, bail set at $300,000. Hope he goes to jail this time, he has MANY previous convictions. Would be interesting to know what happened this time. Intriguing thing is when you look up his record, for some reason it brings up his name along with convictions for Veltrez Black who's in jail right now. They are both friends on Facebook....

I'm sure the babyfood was purchased with SNAP. WIC really only supports breastfed babies with enough to waste. 96 jars per month to be exact. Whatever baby he stole that from is likely bottle fed.
