At approximately 1:50pm this afternoon, police rang my doorbell to announce that they had arrested a “bad guy” in my neighbor’s yard. I peered out past the female officer at my door and saw at least 3 police cruisers and several more officers knocking on the neighbors’ doors. After the officer assured me that I was safe and returned to her peers, I observed them from the safety of my perch (standing on my couch to see what they were all doing.)
Over the next few minutes, several unmarked vehicles, an ambulance and a firetruck arrived. I watched as two officers brought out the suspect in handcuffs. He appeared to be in his late twenties or early thirties. He was drenched in sweat after his run from his pursuers. Tattoos covered his arms and perhaps even his neck (although I didn’t get a close look).
The police gingerly placed him on the ground and began to search him. Paramedics and firemen came over and checked him out as well. By 2:15, they finally began to disperse. First the firetruck. Then the ambulance. Soon all that was left were two cruisers and an unmarked truck that belonged to the police photographer.
At 2:20, the remaining officers placed the suspect in their cruiser and cleared the cul-de-sac. By the time I stepped out my door at 2:25 to go pick up my other daughter, the only vehicle left was the photographer’s. No one would ever know what had just happened….if it weren’t for me being nosy!!
Hope you’re having a great day!!!
