OPPD Returns the Favor

Our metro area police departments are very good at working together to solve crime. The following events are two examples of this kind of team work.

On November 6, 2011, Officers with the Lenexa Police Department caught and arrested a juvenile male for committing auto burglaries in their city. During their investigation they found reason to believe that their arrestee may have committed the same crime in Overland Park.

After speaking with Lenexa Officers, Overland Park Officers responded to an address in Overland Park and discovered an auto burglary that had not yet been reported.

Great police work and cooperation, right? Hang on, it gets better.

The next night, an Overland Park Officer made an arrest and through that investigation, found reason to believe that the person he arrested may have committed auto burglaries in Lenexa.

Lenexa Police were contacted and began investigating. Through their investigation, they now believe the person arrested by the Overland Park Officer may have been involved in at least two auto burglaries in their city.

Isn’t team work great!
