Blood wasn’t thicker than water last week Sunday when District 7 Police Officers Mladen Dukic and Peter Reichert attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a moped in the 3700 block of W. Nash Street.
The moped continued to travel and the 20-year-old passenger on the moped jumped off and fled inside his mother house in the 3600 block of W. Vienna. The officers got permission from his mother to search the house and they located the suspect inside. The officers also located two handguns and found that one of the weapons had been used in a recent robbery. The 20-year-old also matched the description of one of the suspects identified in the incident. He was charged with being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
The good work by these officers took a felon and his guns off the streets, making them a little safer for the good people in the neighborhood.
