I wish the nickname "Fleeing Nunn" was the product of my own cleverness, but apparently it was some wag in the Minneapolis police department or some prosecutor. It was passed on to me and, of course, I'm passing it on to readers. Click here for criminal complaint.
Wanda Nunn, whose surname is that of a known North Minneapolis crime family, is accused of trying to flee from police with a car full of stolen merchandise from a store in Eden Prairie. She was not alone, but in the vehicle with two other persons. The merchandise totaled $1,207.
According to police, on or about October 15...
...they were dispatched to the target store in Eden Prairie on a report of three shoplifters entering a white Ford Explorer, license plate 032 DUU. When officers approached, the vehicle fled. The vehicle almost went through a red light but then slammed on its brakes to avoid hitting a truck, turning 180 degrees. The Explorer backed up and fled on the wrong side of the street. Police were able to pin the vehicle against a curb.
Behind the wheel was Wanda Nunn, who smelled of alcohol. After getting on the phone and calling a member of her family, (or is that CRIME family?) Ms. Nunn refused to take the breath test. The fact she was able to make the phone call in the midst of arrest and a breathalyzer test is due, no doubt, to the fact these were Eden Prairie police, not members of the Fourth Precinct...who would have handled things, well, differently.
Wanda has two DWI convictions within the last ten years. She is charged with drunk driving, theft, and fleeing a police officer.
Her address on the criminal complaint is listed as 2334 Upton Ave. N., a rental owned by Gregory J. Prosch of 3570 Lexington Ave. N. #202 Shoreview, MN.
