We talk a lot about crimes in our neighborhoods, when warranted I’d also like to highlight some good police work.

From MPD Friday night:

Around 10:30 last night, Third District Officers received a call from a citizen advising that a young male was breaking into cars in the 1300 block of W street. The officers arrived in the area and stopped a person matching the caller’s description. After further investigation, the officers found 2 separate cars that were broken into as well as had property stolen out of them. Recovered from the person stopped was property matching the description of the items taken from the vehicles as well as a 9mm handgun from the subject. The male was placed under arrest.

The subject arrested is described as:

Black male approximately 15 years of age, 5’8, 120 lbs, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, riding a red and silver bike.

Anyone with information relating to this event, or persons in that area that match this description are encouraged to call 202-727-9099. Thanks again to the citizen that called and alerted our officers to this individual, together we have taken another gun off the street…….
