Guns Recovered after Early Morning Foot Pursuit

Press Release

For Release:                November 27th, 2017

Prepared By:               Captain Dyon Harper

Guns Recovered after Early Morning Foot Pursuit

Raytown, MO – At about 5:00 A.M. today (11-27-17) officers were called to a residence in the 11000 block of E. 56 Terrace, regarding a vehicle that had been stolen. The resident’s pickup truck had been stolen during the early morning hours. While an officer went to that residence, another officer checked the parking lot of an apartment complex on 61 Street, west of Raytown Road, where other stolen autos have recently been abandoned.

Upon arrival at the parking lot, the stolen truck was found. When officers approached the truck, a 14-year-old male leaped from the truck and ran. The officers chased the male, losing sight of him. After several minutes of searching, officers located the male again, who ran again. They were able to take the male into custody in a nearby backyard, without incident.

Officers discovered stolen property in the truck, including two loaded handguns that were not in the truck when it was originally stolen. Some of the stolen property had been reported stolen last week, taken from another vehicle. The truck was returned to the owner.

The case will be forwarded to Jackson Family Court. Because the suspect is a juvenile, his identity will not be released.

Raytown Police remind everyone that one of the simplest ways to reduce their chance of being victims of theft is to always lock their vehicle doors when leaving vehicles unattended and to remove anything of value, including cash, credit cards, spare vehicle keys, firearms, and small electronics. Making a vehicle a less appealing and difficult target makes a difference.

Report Number 17-3983
