Monday Night Curfew in place for Hennepin, Anoka and Ramsey Counties
Governor Tim Walz ordered a 7 p.m. curfew for Hennepin, Anoka, and Ramsey counties on Monday night.
This announcement was part of a press conference held Monday afternoon with Walz and the mayors of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Both mayors said they were ordering a 7 p.m. curfew before the governor extended it to Hennepin, Anoka and Ramsey. The curfew ends at 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Crystal Police Chief Stephanie Revering made an announcement about the curfew on the Crystal Police Facebook page and added that Crystal will have an additional police presence.
Last night, we responded to attempts to damage and break in to local businesses. We are seeing outside actors coming into town in an attempt to break in and steal items. Because of this, you may have noticed a markedly increased police presence around town. We will continue this presence throughout duration of the metro-wide unrest. Please understand that our officers, in the interest of preservation of safety and property, will attempt to identify the intentions of persons found in closed business areas after hours. –Chief Stephanie Revering
The chief also asked if people see something suspicious, call 911.
Businesses have announced their closings at 6 p.m. ahead of the curfew.
All Punch locations are closing at 6pm tonight for the safety of all customers and employees. Thank you for your understanding.
