On Wednesday PSA 108 Officers arrested an adult male for the theft of packages from a home in PSA 108. After being alerted by a watchful neighbor the Officers located and arrested the individual. They also learned that the suspect was assisted by a second individual in a vehicle; however, attempts to locate the second suspect and vehicle were unsuccessful.
On Saturday First District Vice Officers arrested the same suspect from Wednesday, along with a second person, for the theft of packages in the area of 16th & D Streets SE. PSA Officers who were involved in the Wednesday arrest were able to locate both the vehicle and second suspect from Wednesday’s theft a short distance away. That individual was also arrested on a parole violation warrant and the vehicle was seized so detectives can obtain a search warrant.
These four arrests serve as an outstanding example of community cooperation and excellent police work. The events were initiated on Wednesday with a call of suspicious activity by a watchful neighbor and then a thorough investigation and follow-up by patrol and plainclothes officers working together.
Please remain vigilant and notify MPD whenever you observe suspicious activity or persons by call 911 immediately.
