Aug. 7 – Aug. 8, 2012

Today’s Good News
Fourth Precinct officers recently investigated an in-progress burglary that quickly turned dangerous, but the officers’ instinct and good training kicked in to keep everyone safe. At approximately 2 a.m., officers were dispatched to a burglary call and heard people inside the residence. After they announced their presence, the burglars ran out of the home and one of them knocked over and assaulted an officer on the ground.

Responding officers quickly set up a perimeter and used a K-9 team to locate a hiding suspect and made a safe arrest. Good work K-9 Officer Rob Gregory, K-9 Bullit, Sgt. Shane Waite and Officers Marc Troy, Naitraj David, Arnold Bohanan Jr., George Banks, Aaron Henning, Robert Knight, Anthony McRae, Nicholas Stirrett, Willie O’Neil, and Virgil Burton!
