Police Report: August 5-6

August 5th:

3000 block of Queens Chapel Road: At about 9:30 am officers took a report of a stolen auto. The victim/owner told the officers that her vehicle was left parked by her residence the previous evening by a friend. When the owner went to use the car this morning she discovered that it had been stolen. The vehicle was not repossessed or impounded for other reasons. A canvass of the area for witnesses and/or evidence proved negative.

3200 block of Rhode Island Avenue: At about 6:30 pm officers received an anonymous tip that an identified individual had an open warrant. Officers were able to locate the individual in question and confirm that he was indeed wanted by the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear in court. He was arrested and delivered to the custody of DOC in Hyattsville without incident.

August 6th (early morning):

4200 block of 31st Street: At about 12:45 am officers responded for a report of a residential burglary. The owners of the residence told the officers that they had just returned home to find that person(s) unknown had broken in and stole two laptop computers, a camera and a guitar. The officers determined that the perpetrator’s point of entry was through a front porch window. The POE was not processed for evidence at the request of the residents.

Why wasn't the POE processed anyway? When my home was broke into, I had to get the county to come out and process the POE, is this due to the fact that city officers are not certified? Sounds to me like some city officers need more training/certifications. My point is that it only takes a good officer to process a break in about 30 minutes max. then the paperwork.

As I stated in the post, the officers did not process the POE at the request of the residents.
