ROSEVILLE, Minn.—A story from the Star Tribune reports the Roseville City Council has voted to impose steep fees on citizens who have repeat visits from police for false alarms from automatic security systems.

This year, residents were granted three free alarms, then were charged $100, $135, $170 and $205 for the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh offenses.

In 2011, repeat offenders will be charged $100 on the third alarm, and the fees will increase by $100 each thereafter, up to a cap of $500.
