“On Wednesday, September 14th, an armed burglary occurred at 4843 Illinois Avenue, NW. The Fourth District detectives were able to develop a suspect and quickly obtained an arrest warrant for 32 year-old Youhynas Gray of Laurel, MD.
On Saturday, a member of the Fourth District was off-duty and was at a shopping mall in Maryland when he recognized the suspect. He knew the suspect was wanted in the armed burglary. He contacted the local police and directed the responding officers to the location of the suspect. The suspect is currently in the process of being extradited to the District of Columbia.
This was an excellent job by the officer!”
