Props to the Cops and Good Neighbors Looking Out


From MPD:

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.

  • Did they find flowers in the seized car?

  • So the guy was arrested on Wednesday, released immediately, and arrested again a few days later for the same offense? Wonder what he’s up to today?

  • For what it’s worth, the photo accompanying this article shows the cover of William Sears’ book “Thief in the Night,” which describes how Old and New Testament prophecies were fulfilled by the Bab and Baha’u’llah, the prophet founders of the Babi and Baha’i Faith, respectively. The book title is taken from Second Peter 3:10 “The Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night” in reference to the quiet and subtle manner in which Christ would return.

    Glad to see the police and the community work together and solve these crimes. 🙂
