  • anyone know what burglary two is?

      Second degree:

      Burglary in the second degree is a crime with fewer elements and a broader scope. Only two elements are necessary to commit burglary in the second degree:

      The perpetrator must enter any dwelling, bank, store, warehouse, shop, stable, building, apartment, room, steamboat, canalboat, vessel, railroad car, or area where goods are kept, and;
      The perpetrator must be entering with the intent to break and carry away any part, fixture, or other thing attached to or connected with the area or with the intent to commit any criminal offense.

      Seems the difference is that the residences were unoccupied at the time of the break in. But, IANAL.

  • I’m always a little suspicious when the police report that they have arrested someone for a long string of crimes like this – it seems a little too convenient and makes me think that they are trying to pin every open burglary in the neighborhood on the one perpetrator they happened to catch. Hopefully it’s not just wishful thinking and this guy really is connected to all those incidents. Even if he is just responsible for one or two, though, props to the cops for their hard work!

    • These guys tend to be serial burglars. My guess is the cops searched his place and found a ton of stolen property, which can then be linked to past reported crimes. Hopefully a bunch of people are getting their stolen property back for Xmas!

    • It actually fits my experience in the world: it really only takes a couple of assholes to make everyone miserable. I’d rather think that there’s one asshole committing a lot of burglaries rather than lots and lots of people committing a few burglaries each.

  • Being and MPD police officer can be very challenging, especially in areas with higher crime. Props to the cops!!
