A couple responsible for multiple crimes across the metro area were arrested Wednesday, Dec. 29, in a joint effort by the Bloomington, Edina and Minnetonka police departments.
David Stanislavovich Petrashov, 25, was arrested at 5:50 p.m. at a hotel in the 2800 block of American Boulevard West in Bloomington following extensive criminal investigation and surveillance. His girlfriend, Lavina Pauline Catherine Renville, 32, was arrested for possession of narcotics.
Petrashov and Renville have been the focus of several criminal investigations across the metro area, including cases in Hennepin, Anoka and Scott counties. These crimes include residential and business burglaries, credit card fraud, receiving stolen property, fleeing police in a motor vehicle, identity theft and drug possession.
At the time of arrest, Petrashov and Renville were found to be in possession of several thousands of dollars in stolen property, two firearms and various narcotics.
In Edina and Bloomington, Petrashov is suspected of committing seven unoccupied residential burglaries, one burglary of an apartment’s underground garage, three cases of damage to property, fleeing from police and theft from and damage to vehicles.
In Minnetonka, charges have been submitted to the Hennepin County Attorney connecting Petrashov to a residential burglary on Dec. 22, in which property, including several items of jewelry, were taken from a 79-year-old. At the time of the burglary, a vehicle stolen from Minneapolis was used in the commission of the crime. This same vehicle, suspected to be driven by Petrashov on all occasions, has fled multiple times from law enforcement and avoided capture.
Petrashov is suspected in other crimes in Edina and Minnetonka where detectives anticipate additional charges to be brought forward in the near future.
Petrashov and Renville are being held at the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center.
