Today’s Good News

Richmond Police officers don’t just respond to calls for help. They also get to know lots of citizens within their communities. That information recently helped Second Precinct officers make two quick arrests in an armed robbery case on Jefferson Davis Highway. Officer Joseph Dillon was the first officer on scene and gathered information about the two robbers who were only known to the victim by their nicknames. Officer Todd Hall immediately knew who the robbers were based on the nicknames and their physical descriptions, which helped Detective Derrick Longoria create an accurate photo lineup to show the victim. The robbers were positively identified and warrants are pending for their arrest. Good work!
