Incident Date04/07/2020 - 9:30 AM
DetailsYoung car thieves, driving around in one stolen vehicle, made off with a 2019 Jeep Overland from the driveway of a home on Keswick Dr. this morning. One teen sped away in the Jeep, while his associates did the same in the other stolen SUV.
Shortly thereafter, members of the MPD's Traffic Enforcement Team clocked the Jeep going over 100 mph on the West Beltline. Officers attempted a stop near Rimrock Rd., but that was not successful.
In the month of March, there were 53 stolen vehicles reported in Madison. In March of 2019, there were 30. For the first three months of the year, the number of stolen autos is 152. That compares with 116 during the same time period in 2019.
The MPD continues to arrest many young law breakers, as stopping this criminal activity remains a priority, yet despite efforts of officers and detectives, the crime spree remains unabated.
