In late March, police received reports of "multiple robberies at gunpoint" around the 900 block of Oliver Ave. N. One of the victims reported the robbers were standing at a bus stop in front of 923 Penn Ave. N., according to a criminal complaint.
When police showed up, they arrested Steven Creamer and Aaron Jerome Williams. A cell phone belonging to one victim was found in the pocket of Creamer's pants. There's no mention in the criminal complaint that a tracking device on the phone helped to locate the robbers but, well, one wonders.
A realistic-looking BB gun was found in the vicinity and Creamer pretty much admitted he'd handled the gun. He's prohibited from having guns due to a prior conviction. Yes, even a BB gun.
On the criminal complaint, Creamer's home address is listed as 3743 Logan Ave. N., a property owned by A Vision LLC with the taxpayer listed as Bruce D. Barron of Savage, MN.
The name "A Vision LLC" keeps coming up in association with dubious people in North Minneapolis...
Click here for one example, the murder of DeCari Antonio Starr. Click here for another, Arnaz Thompson who tried to swallow 12 baggies of cocaine, allegedly. By the way, Bruce Barron is associated with THAT property, too, according to online property records.
So where does Bruce get his money to fool around with Northside properties and rent to the criminal scum class?
Well, Bruce D. Barron of Savage, Minnesota, is apparently associated with an entity called Centric Capitol Advisors/Financial and has made contributions to MADIA FOR CONGRESS. (Click here for link to this info)

Beyond that, I have no information about Bruce D. Barron. If he's the landlord of this property as well as the property where DeCari Starr was murdered, then Bruce Barron might be well advised to practice better judgment with his tenants.
