An Overland Park man trusted his instincts and reported suspicious behavior, which resulted in two arrests.
On October 13, 2011, at 3am, Overland Park Police responded to a call of two suspicious males walking in a neighborhood wearing gloves and carrying backpacks. The reporting person had seen the males enter a silver sedan. When officers arrived, they observed a silver sedan parked in the street with its doors open. A foot chase then ensued with two males who matched the description.
A K-9 was called out to assist with this search. The silver sedan was a stolen vehicle and had a .22 caliber rifle inside. Two suspects were soon located and taken into custody.
This criminal activity would not have been discovered without citizen’s help in observing and immediately reporting this suspicious behavior to police.
