B&E arrest from a suspicious activity call

A note from the DPD on 17 Dec 2015 and how effective community and law enforcement working together can be:

Good morning

Another big thank you to an alert resident in the area of Magnolia Tree Lane for calling in suspicious activity. This call lead to the arrest of four individuals for multiple charges to include breaking and entering.

Without the call of suspicious activity we may not have apprehended these suspects. At this time we do not know if they are involved in other crimes but our investigators will be following up to see if they are linked to other break-ins in Durham. If the investigators are able to determine any links they will contact the victims directly.

Thank you to the resident of Durham and all of the officers who worked hard to apprehend these suspects.

What a great team effort!

Here is the information on those arrested. On a side note, Montre Cates was recently stopped in the area of Page Rd and Lumley Rd when another alert resident called in suspicious activity.
