Oct. 2 – Oct. 4, 2013

Today’s Good News
Kudos to Fourth Precinct Detective Margaret Cunningham who was named the Department’s Problem Solver of the Month for September! When different groups of burglars kept breaking into homes in the Bellevue neighborhood last month, it was she who found different ways to monitor, identify and arrest the offenders. In the first cluster of burglaries, Detective Cunningham only had the use of a stolen credit card, but that was enough to lead her to surveillance video and then identifying the suspects. Though she couldn’t charge the pair with as many crimes as she suspected them of, crime dropped off significantly after their arrest.

During the second and third cluster of burglaries in a nearby neighborhood, Detective Cunningham worked with officers to develop and arrest the suspects as well as increased surveillance and patrols. This great work is just part for the course for the dedicated Detective Cunningham. Thank you and congratulations!
