Today’s Good News
It wasn’t too hard for Third Precinct Officer Travis Thompson to find a man who broke into a vehicle on West Cary Street this past weekend and stole several items. Witnesses saw the man run down an alley. Officer Thompson called for backup and followed the man’s footprints in the snow back to his apartment building. Officers recovered the victim’s belongings and arrested the man for grand larceny. Good work officers!
