Urban Explorer Gets Busted

A local urban explorer was arrested over the weekend for “trespassing in a critical public service facility” – in this case, apparently, sewers under Saint Paul. I don’t really have much to add, except I find it amusing that the article refers to Mr. Krube as a “mouser”. I assume they’re getting their information from a Saint Paul Police press release, and the fine folks of the SPPD are continuing their grand, long-standing tradition of not knowing as much as they should about urban explorers. “Mouser” is probably a reference to the roughly annual local urban-exploration event called “Mouser Week”, which takes place this time of year. I don’t know that I’d call Krube “a mouser”, but it’s better than some of the other terms the SPPD have used (PDF!)…

Incidentally, “Mouser Week” is named for Mouser himself, who is mildly amused by his eternal infamy. (Via Milkmandan.)
