6200 block Hammersley Rd.


The MPD chased down one of several young men who were stealing items from a parked car in the 62000 block of Hammersley Rd. Wednesday afternoon. The car's owner had just returned from a grocery store, and had left the car unlocked for a couple of minutes. When she came back outside, all of her car doors were open, and four or five teens were now running from her driveway. Electronics and other items were missing from the car. Many community members called 911, providing officers with information on suspects as the young men ran through backyards. A 12-year-old was taken into custody near Raymond Rd. and Leland Dr. He was cited for being party to the crime of theft. The boy was released to a parent. Just prior to the Hammersley Rd. incident, the MPD was notified of young men looking into windows of homes in the area of Gladstone Dr. and Tucson Trail. Descriptions were similar to those seen fleeing from the Hammersley Rd. incident.
