Friends and Neighbors
I just received the note below from our community resources officer Jessica Morrison concerning a police action in the wider OL neighborhood yesterday. This action was only possible through the residents nearby reporting suspicious activity to LMPD repeatedly. The repeated reports allowed LMPD to focus their attention on the house in question and create a positive outcome for the safety of OL.
On 09/20/2018 at approximately 2130, detectives from Narcotics SES2, with assistance from SES1, executed a search warrant 1036 S 7th, 1. Detectives utilized an entry ram to breach the rear door of the home causing minor damage to the door and door frame. Once inside, detectives secured a female subject without incident. During a search of the home, detectives recovered crack cocaine packaged for sale, a quantity of heroin, illicit pills and an assortment of drug paraphernalia. With this search warrant, detectives were able to clear out multiple complaints at this location.
The lesson to be learned is that if you see something suspicious or illegal, call it in to LMPD or 311. They can act on reports on file, and the more reported incidents, the more pressure can be brought to bear.
An involved community becomes a safer community.
