Subject: [MPD-1D] Arrests in Burglaries
On Tuesday, December 7th member of the First District made apprehensions for the following burglaries in progress
1- 500 blk of 3rd St SE at about 10 am.
The complaint reports coming home and noticing his front basement window and screen missing and observed a subject inside. Complainant called 911 and the subject, along with another subject fled. 1D responded, and a lookout was broadcast. A short time later 2 subjects matching the description were stopped and eventually identified by the complainant. Recovered from the suspects were computer and electronic equipment.
2-1600 blk of F St NE at about 7 pm
A witness reported to police that she observed several subjects enter into a residence in the block by breaking the front window. 1D officers responded and as they were securing the front and rear of the location, 2 subjects were seen running from the rear of the location. After a short foot pursuit, both subjects were stopped and arrested. Nothing was reported taken as the quick action of the witness in notifying quickly enabled us to arrive and apprehend the suspects before the were able to complete the burglary.
SAFETY TIP: Remember, if something looks suspicious don't hesitate to call 911. When calling try to remember the lookout of the suspect(s) and direction of travel if known. If a vehicle is involved and you're able to give a description- even a partial tag is helpful.
