MPD Daily Significant Calls 02/26/2019 to 02/27/2019

February 27, 2019 8:20 AM


It is important to keep an inventory of your personal property.  This is helpful for insurance purposes and in case you become a victim of stolen property.  The attached form is in an easy-to-use format that lists the important details that would be needed for these situations.  Items worth noting on this form include electronics (laptops, computers, cell phones, TVs, etc.), jewelry, firearms, antiques and anything else that would be considered high-value.  (Inventory Form)       



The information contained in my blog is derived from notes provided by MPD Officers-In-Charge (OIC) at the end of their shifts. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered by an OIC from those in the field who were actively working cases. The OIC is sharing what they were being told, in the moment. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as officers, detectives and investigators continue their work.

From 6:00 a.m. on 02/26/2019 through 6:00 a.m. on 02/27/2019, MPD received 414 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.  For purposes of clarification, the following abbreviations are short-hand for race designations: W=White, AA=African American, NA=Native American, H=Hispanic, ME=Middle Eastern, A=Asian, MR=Mixed Race, U=Unknown.  MPD shifts are staggered as follows: 1st detail=7 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2nd detail=12 p.m. to 8 p.m., 3rd detail=3 p.m. to 11 p.m., 4th detail=8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 5th detail=11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

To further break down the 414 calls for service for the past 24-hours, this is how the calls came in per district: Central (64), East (90), Midtown (75), North (60), South (40), West (54), and Other (31).  Other=these are calls for service that either do not have a sector listed or the sector is not in the City.  For example, if one of our officers assists another law enforcement agency, their sector is not listed in our districts so therefore it is listed under "other". 

**Priority calls only from 11:50pm-4:40am due to calls for service. 

1) NORTH: Adult Arrested Person – 5:12 a.m.  Officers responded to Trailsway regarding a "loud argument."  Contact was made with two subjects (25-year-old AAF and 20-year-old AAM).  The male subject was located in a closet and lied about his identity.  Neither subject would cooperate with officers.  The male subject/suspect was found to have an active warrant.  The suspect was arrested for the outstanding warrant and obstructing. *This was a late call that did not make the previous 24-hour cycle call notes due to officers being involved at the scene and reports from the field were not yet typed.   

2) CENTRAL: Trespassing – 6:30 a.m.  Officers responded to the Concourse Hotel on W. Dayton St for a suspect (27-year-old AAM) trespassing and refusing to leave the premises when asked.  The suspect was cited for trespassing at the same location two days prior.  Officers made contact with the suspect, escorted him from the premises and issued him a citation for trespassing.  The suspect returned to the property a short time later and again refused to leave.  Officers responded, arrested the suspect and conveyed him to jail to post on another trespassing citation.
