Officers in Action
Last month, Officer R. Worsham, and Officer S. Blevins were dispatched to a suspicious person call. Officer Worsham and Officer Blevins arrived at the location minutes after being dispatched and quickly realized the call was a burglary of a motor vehicle in progress involving two suspects. The officers quickly detained one of the suspects close to the original scene and then began a search for the second suspect who fled the scene on foot. Officer Blevins caught the second suspect after a brief foot chase in an adjacent neighborhood.
The suspects were brought back to the scene and identified by the victims whose vehicles were burglarized. All of the property stolen by the suspects was recovered and returned to the rightful owners.
Many of the crime problems facing our city are due to criminals, such as these suspects, who roam our streets. We are proud to recognize the contributions of these two officers to the quality of life in Houston. This arrest is an excellent example of teamwork, dedication and cooperation leading to a successful conclusion without incident. Because of the efforts and dedication of these officers, the city of Houston is a better and safer place to live and work. Due to the officers’ professionalism, keen instincts and innate skills they arrested two suspects and quite possibly stopped further burglaries that plague our city.
