UPDATE: About the 35th/Holden police response

(Texted photo)

ORIGINAL REPORT, 3:48 PM MONDAY: Moments after we published a Crime Watch roundup, this happened – a big police response at the 35th/Holden gas station. Thanks for the tips! Per the scanner, officers recovered this stolen Honda Accord:

We don’t know yet if there’s anything more to the case than “stolen/recovered car,” but even if there isn’t, the sizable response is standard – since motor-vehicle theft is a felony, it requires what is referred to as a “felony stop” (guns drawn).

UPDATE, 11:10 AM TUESDAY: We followed up this morning with SPD. What ended at the gas station started at Westwood Village, where an officer spotted the stolen car, alerting others along the way, and finally catching up with it. Its occupants, who were taken into custody, “had stolen credit cards and IDs” in their possession, per SPD.

    Was there anyone in or around the car suspected of the theft?

      Yes, I happened to be turning right onto 35th from holden at the bizarre, exact time guns were drawn, there were police cars pouring in from everywhere, no sirens which seemed weird. they were in the process of arresting what appeared to be a man and a young woman. i was stuck at the light, couldn’t turn right fast enough to get out of there!

        I must have got there not too long after it went down… two more officers arrived as I was getting to the stop light on 35th.

      From what I hear, there were two arrests. I did not see them firsthand, however.

        Please keep in mind: Because you see someone in handcuffs, down on the ground, or otherwise restrained, does not necessarily mean they were *arrested*. It means they were in custody, at least for that moment. Sometimes people are taken into custody, or restrained until police sort out what’s going on and who’s involved, but ultimately not actually arrested. I won’t be able to get details before tomorrow.

    I remember in 2010 when my car was stolen, the officer that took my report made sure that I KNEW that should I FIND MY CAR, call them, DO NOT get in the car and drive off, because if they see it driving or parked with ME IN IT, I would get pulled over at Gun Point..
    Glad that someone’s stolen car was found… Hope its not damaged, or damaged too badly.. People are just jerks… Get a job, earn your own money and quit stealing from others who work hard for what they have….. Ugh!

Sorry, comment time is over.
