“Dear PoP,

If you missed it, 3D commander Kishter announced three – count ’em three – immediate crime closing arrests tonight on the MPD 3D list serve. This is the type of proactive policing everyone says they want. While there’s know way of knowing if this is a trend or coincidence, it’s sure a great start for the Third Districts new Commander!”

Following are the three arrests from last night from MPD:

“At approximately 7 pm this evening a cab driver was robbed at Georgia Ave and Hobart Streets, Northwest.
After a swift police response by officers in the area a subject was stopped.
Subsequent to the stop the subject was identified as the suspect who committed the robbery and he was arrested.
