The suspect (30 year old WM) fled on foot with a 60" TV.  The suspect was apprehended and conveyed to jail for warrants, a probation violation, felony retail theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.

4) CENTRAL: Adult Arrested Person - 3:43 p.m.  MPD officers responded to the intersection of State Street and W. Mifflin Street for a 58 year old AAM who was violating his probation (being in the State Street Corridor).  He was arrested without incident.  The suspect, who is very familiar to Central District officers and has frequent police contact, made statements of a threatening nature to a specific, individual officer.  Thus, a decision was made to charge the suspect with threats to a law enforcement officer in addition to the probation violation. 

5) EAST: ATL Person – 4:05 p.m.  East patrol units attempted contact with a subject in the 4100 block of Portland Parkway who had two warrants.  As contact was made with the 34 year old WM, he fled the scene.  Officers canvassed the area but the subject remains at large.

11) CENTRAL: Adult Arrested Person – 11:16 p.m.  Central officers responded to 223 North Frances Street (Nitty Gritty) for a 30 year old WM suspect who battered a bouncer (23 year old WM victim.)   Apparently, the suspect had been denied entry into the bar due to his high level of intoxication.  The suspect then repeatedly punched the bouncer and several other individuals had to assist in restraining the suspect.  The suspect also threatened to go to his car and get a gun.  The suspect was arrested and taken to the jail on charges of battery and disorderly conduct. 

12) NORTH: Missing Juvenile/Runaway – 11:47 p.m.  A father called MPD to report his 17 year old son missing.  The 17 year old HM has been gone since after school on 3/9/2018.  There are no mental health concerns.  Attempt to locate aired.  The juvenile was listed as missing/runaway in the appropriate databases.
