Man Arrested After Great Police Work Between Police Departments

On 2/22/11 Kansas City Missouri Officers attempted to stop a car that was listed as stolen out of Overland Park. The vehicle failed to yield to Officers on the ground, but was followed by an air unit. The car was followed to the area of 95th and Mission where it entered a parking garage. A perimeter was set up by Overland Park and Leawood Officers.

Officers determined that the suspect fled the vehicle. While looking for the suspect, an Overland Park Officer saw a male jump a fence and get into the passenger side of a car that had just pulled up in the area. The vehicle was stopped by a Leawood Officer and the passenger was detained on an outstanding felony warrant.

The Kansas City Missouri Police Officer who saw the suspect in the stolen car in their city, responded to the scene. He positively identified the man detained, as the driver of the stolen vehicle. The man was arrested and transported to the Johnson County Jail. All the details of this case will be provided to the District Attorney’s Office for charges.

This is another great example of the police departments in our area communicating and working together to solve crime.

Thank you to the Kansas City Missouri Police Department and the Leawood Police Department for their efforts in this case.
