Edina Mugging

KSTP News has reported a mugging in Edina earlier today. For those of you not familiar with Edina, it's a first-ring, wealthy suburb that sits on the western border of Minneapolis, and muggings in that city are, to say the least, very unusual.

The robbery happened close to the border with Minneapolis.

Therein lies the problem. Stupid punk criminals don't understand city boundaries, so they probably thought they were in Minneapolis and could get away with their crime. Little did they know they were on the turf of Edina's finest, and they were scooped up in short order.

Here's the news story: "Women mugged outside Edina apartment"

Two women were robbed at gunpoint outside their Edina apartment Tuesday then walked to a nearby grocery store and forced to withdraw money from an ATM, according to police.

The women were outside their apartment on the 3900 block of 49th St. around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday when two males approached them and one of them was carrying a gun, police reported in a news release. The suspects rifled through one of the woman's purses and then demanded that the women withdraw money from an ATM.

The suspects walked the two women to Lunds Grocery Store on W. 50th St. where one of the women took money from an ATM. She gave the money to the suspect, then walked to the back of the store and dialed 911. Within minutes, Edina police responded and arrested the suspects near 51st and Ewing Aves. S. in Minneapolis, police reported.

The suspects were transported to Hennepin County Jail. They have been identified as Coery Cornell Gosha, 18, Merle Monta Robertson, 18, Ezequel Gutierrez, 19, and Alonzo Tacorrious, 19.
What do you want to bet these scumbags live in Minneapolis?
