I need to give MPD props for an arrest made over the weekend for my break-in that you folks reported on a few months ago:
“Yesterday, just before 12:30 PM, thieves kicked in our front door. Luckily our alarm went off quickly, scaring them off before they took too much and alerting us and MPD quickly. Our family and pets are ok, but they made off with some laptops and one of our cars (keys were on the kitchen counter…) – I love that little car.”
During the investigation, police found a finger print which lead them to issuing an arrest warrant early in December and an arrest over the weekend. I got a call on Monday from the Detective working our case and am looking forward to hearing from the US Attorney this week.
According to the Detective, this particular criminal has been involved in about 10 different break-ins around the neighborhood. He’s currently being held at DC jail on a half-dozen burglary charges and will spend New Years as a guest of the DC justice system.
Well done to the responding officers, our detectives who investigated the case, and ESPECIALLY the officer who took the prints!”
