“Fifth District officers received a call for someone kicking a back door in, in the 1800 block of L Street Northeast. Through the great work of a neighbor, and dedicated Fifth District Officers Jerry Holmes, Melvin Washington, and Bryant Collins, a Burglary suspect was taken off the streets.
The officers arrived on the scene of 1834 L Street Northeast and quickly spotted the suspect, a foot chase began and the suspect was captured a short time later. A dedicated neighbor called the police, and took pictures of the suspect to assist with closing this case. Recovered in the back yard of 1834 l Street Northeast was a television.
Due to the fact the arrestee was a juvenile, I am unable to provide his information.
Great team work!!!!”
