  • On September 2, 2020: Two MPD officers investigated a theft from a vehicle and prowler from the east garage. The officers obtained surveillance footage of the suspect and initiated a critical reach flyer. Later in the day, two other MPD officers were patrolling on North Fremont when they observed the suspect from the case walking down the street. The suspect was still wearing the same clothing as depicted in the surveillance footage. The two officers detained the suspect and learned he was a wanted parolee from Santa Cruz. This is a great example of taking the extra steps in investigating thoroughly as well as keen observational skills. All officers are to be commended for a job well done and taking another felon off the street.
