July 23 – July 24, 2014

Today’s Good News
First Precinct Officer Shavonte Cotman-Russell recently spotted two men who appeared to be about ready to steal a moped in the city’s East End. As they stood next to the moped, Officer Cotman-Russell approached the pair and noticed how nervous they looked as he spoke with them. However, since he hadn’t witnessed any crime and there was no victim, he took their information and let them leave.

But he didn’t stop there. A short time later, he and Officer Kenise Ford found the moped’s owner, discovered part of the moped’s chain had been cut and located bolt cutters nearby. After further investigation, they took out warrants for tampering with a vehicle, possession of burglary tools and attempted theft. Since they already knew who the suspects were, they had no trouble finding and serving those warrants. Good work officers!

Today’s Good News
Thanks to the speedy and coordinated response from Third Precinct officers earlier this month, a man who robbed a trio of young teens in the Fan was quickly found and arrested. Focus Mission Team Officer Henry Johnson spoke with the victim and broadcast a detailed suspect description and the last known direction of travel. Detective Bill Cutshall updated the possible location after one of the victims used “Find My iPhone” to locate his stolen phone. That’s when Officer Jacob DeBoard spotted the suspect walking with a group of people on Idlewood Avenue.

The coordinated response by patrol and Focus Mission Team officers resulted in the detention of several individuals, including the primary suspect, who was stopped by Officer Johnson. A victim later identified the primary suspect as the man who robbed him, pointing to his stolen belt around the suspect’s waist. Further investigation by Detective Cutshall resulted in the man’s arrest for robbery as well as trying to bribe the detective to make the crime go away. Good teamwork officers!

Today’s Good News
Here’s a great example of why we ask our citizens to pay attention and let us know when they see something suspicious. At approximately 10 a.m. one day last week, a citizen called to report a man using bolt cutters to cut a fence and then trying to take an HVAC unit from a residence on Decatur Street. Second Precinct Officer Jean Therency quickly responded to investigate and spotted the suspect who took off running.

As the man ran, he dropped a backpack of items and a variety of tools, including bolt cutters. The man eventually ran into a business and tried to hide in the bathroom, but helpful citizens pointed out his location to Officer Therency, who subsequently arrested him without incident. Further investigation with the assistance of Detective Pedro Riddle revealed the man was already wanted on two outstanding felony warrants. Additional charges are pending. This quick arrest would not have been possible without the help of our great citizens. Thank you, citizens, and good work officers!

Today’s Good News
To serve, protect and care. That was Fourth Precinct Officer Willie O’Neil’s motto after he recently stopped to speak with two individuals sitting in a parked car on the city’s Northside. After talking with the adult male and his teen daughter, Officer O’Neil learned that the man had just lost his job and the pair was sleeping in their car while they tried to find housing and a new job.

Officer O’Neil then exhausted all of the options officially available to him as he tried to find a place for the family to sleep for the night. Despite all of his efforts, he was unable to find another agency to help provide them a haven.

He refused to accept that so he decided to resolve the issue by paying for a hotel room out of his own money so that they would have a safe place to stay. Thank you, Officer O’Neil, for your kindness and generosity.

July 17 – July 18, 2014

Today’s Good News
Sometimes our officers get help from unexpected sources. This past weekend, it was an 80-year-old retiree who got the drop on a burglar that made the difference. Just before 1 a.m. Saturday, the victim heard a noise downstairs and when he went to investigate, he spotted a man walking into the bathroom. The victim quickly grabbed the door knob, shut the door and held it tightly, preventing the burglar from escaping, while his daughter called police.

Several Second Precinct officers arrived on scene within minutes and safely took the man into custody.  After being interviewed by Detective Roger Owens, the man confessed to the crime and was charged with burglary. Good work officers and we’d like to thank the victim for his assistance in this case!
