Cammack chief scores again

Posted By on Thu, Mar 4, 2010 at 4:55 PM

Cammack Police Chief Peter Powell, and his trusty K-9 colleague Tango, have again collared malefactors who made the mistake of wandering through his quiet little enclave surrounded by Little Rock.

This time, a chase led to the arrest of suspects with flat-screen TVs, change jars, a home safe, and computer gear in their vehicle. They were products of Little Rock home burglaries, Powell said.

CAMMACK VILLAGE RELEASE

Tuesday (03/02/2010) morning Chief Powell attempted to conduct a traffic stop of a vehicle on Palisades Drive, but the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed.

Chief Powell lost sight of the suspect vehicle and discontinued pursuit. Shortly afterward he observed the vehicle traveling a high rate of speed on Sunset Drive, then south onto Audubon.

Again he attempted to stop the vehicle but the vehicle continued to flee. The vehicle turned west onto Waverly and then into a carport of a residence. The driver was exiting the vehicle about to flee on foot, just as Chief Powell pulled in behind him.

Chief Powell ordered him to stop or he would release his Police K-9 Tango. The driver stopped and was taken into custody without further incident. The passenger in the suspect vehicle was removed from the vehicle and placed into custody without incident as well.

Initally both suspects stated they fled because they had suspended drivers licenses.

Scattered in the back seat and cargo area of the vehicle , were three 42/50" Flat screen TVs, three laptop computers and other various electronic equipment, change jars , home safe etc.

LRPD officers responded to the scene quickly to assist chief Powell.

At the time of this incident , there were no reported burglaries in Cammack Village.

Little Rock Patrol officers and Detectives were able to identify the homes which had been burglarized, return the property to the owners and obtain confessions from the suspects.

Chief Powell would like to Thank the Little Rock Police Department for their rapid response to his call for assistance and for their investigative efforts .
