Highland Police Arrest 2 Robbery Suspects

4 Dec

by Ken Davidson

Just hours after issuing an alert for the public to be on the lookout, Highland Police arrested two burglary suspects this morning. Police received a call regarding a burglary in the Terrace Estates Subdivision this morning.  At 11:27 am , Highland PD issued another public alert that they were searching for a heavy set black male wearing a white shirt.  Within minutes that alert was updated to reflect that the subject was in custody but another suspect was still on the loose.  At 12:20 pm, a final alert was issued advising that the second suspect was in custody.  Both suspects are believed to have been involved in a burglary in the development earlier today.  It is not known at this time whether these suspects are responsible for a string of burglaries that caused police to issue an alert yesterday.  Highland Police are still asking residents to remain on heightened alert and notify police of any suspicious activity.

    Minutes? there were three suspects. It took at least an hour to catch the first one.
    It took another hour to catch the other, and the third is still at large.They had great cooperation from other jurisdictions. Thank you Munster,Griffith and Dyer. However It is interesting that Highland PD recognized one of the suspects and knew him by name.

    I love the ones that complain (TB) and these are the ones that do nothing to help in our community. I think our police dept. did a great job.

      I believe they did a great job too Dawn. One of the most important things is that they got the public involved. They issued several public alerts telling people to be on the lookout. They were assisted by other departments also.

    Will we hear of further information into the arrest of these two? Are they the ones that have been doing the break ins in Highland? Have their residents been checked for stolen items from other homes?
