About the big police response in High Point

(Added: Photo tweeted by @deviantollam)

Big police response scaling down in High Point. Police have just arrested a suspect in what was originally described over radio as a robbery or robbery attempt, involving a knife, at the 35th/Morgan Walgreens. The suspect wound up on a roof at Stewart Manor across the alley. Police called in reinforcements, even negotiators – then the suspect came down and officers arrested him.

    Great job, again, SPD.

    Before I passed the crash on W Marginal I saw cops speeding and coming from all directions- wondered what was going on – Now it all makes sense! Orginally thought somebody fled the accident on W Marginal.

    WSB, if you have access to the info, I (and I am sure others) would be interested in some more information on the suspect like prior arrests and subsequent releases and how recent.  My guess is this this suspect is well known to SPD.  Looks to me like a lot of limited police resources were needed to handle this predictable situation while other high priority calls had to wait.  Would be interesting to know the backlog of calls at the time they were dealing with this.

      Sorry, I don’t have the suspect’s name.

Sorry, comment time is over.
