While I still feel like I’m in a science fiction film when MPD addresses us as “citizens”… the info below is good stuff. Props to the “female citizen” and MPD for getting the stolen items back and arresting these criminal geniuses.

From MPD:

“Dear citizens, on 2/28/11, a female citizen was approached by two juvenile subjects from the rear when they began striking her to the upper body. The juvenile suspects stole her cell phone and laptop following the assault. Later, the female citizen texted her cell phone number and offered a reward for the return of her stolen property. On 3/2/11, she received a response from an unknown person who wanted to meet her in a predetermined location.

MPD members were alerted and an observation post was established. MPD members observed the suspects arriving at the location and carrying a laptop. The suspects were immediately stopped and a positive identification of them was made. These suspects were arrested and charged with robbery, receiving stolen property, extortion, and burglary (from an earlier offense.)

Through their efforts, the MPD was able to apprehend these suspects in a safe an effective manner. Citizens are reminded to be aware of their surroundings and report all criminal offenses to the police department by call 911.”
