Through this blog, I try to keep citizens aware of events occurring in our city. Frequently, we ask you to watch for a suspect car, identify a certain type of crime, or assist in identifying a person. Whenever possible, I believe we should provide updates to those events for which we have asked assistance.
If you remember, on September 8th and 15th we posted a photo showing a person of interest in some burglaries of cell phone stores. Recently, we gained more information on these crimes from a simple car stop.
On October 28, 2011, an officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in the area of 75th and Metcalf. The juvenile driver did not provide the officer with his correct personal information so the officer began to investigate further. During the investigation, the officer discovered the juvenile was in possession of stolen property.
As the investigation continued, information regarding the cell phone burglaries was discovered. The juvenile was taken into custody for obstruction, possession of stolen property, and driving without a driver’s license. There have not been any charges filed regarding the cell phone burglaries as of yet, but the cases will be sent to the District Attorney’s Office soon for review of charges.
Just thought you would like to know.
