Carjacking – CARJACKERS ARRESTED 10/25

On Sunday, 9/25 at about 7:40 AM a resident reported that she had her vehicle stolen from her at gunpoint at 20th and Kendall Streets. The vehicle is a 1999 4 Door Red Chevrolet Cavalier, bearing Colorado plate KQI 283.

The two suspects are described as follows:

H/F, About 20 YOA, 5-2/130 with long black hair wearing a pink baseball cap, gray sweat shirt, tan pants and a light colored backpack brandishing a handgun.
H/M, About 18 YOA, 5-7, wearing a black baseball cap and black sweatshirt.

The victim was not physically injured during the crime and was able to flee the scene – the suspects fled westbound on W. 20th Ave in the victim’s vehicle. The stolen vehicle was located abandoned on 9/26 in Lone Tree.

During the course of the follow-up investigation SRO McCallin and Detective Naumann worked with the victim in this case and surreptitiously identified the suspects in this case.

On 10/25 Edgewater Officers arrested the female, a 16 year old Lakewood juvenile involved in this carjacking at her residence in the 1700 block of Kendall St. Multiple evidentiary items were confiscated during the subsequent search of the suspect’s home. The female’s 18 year old brother was also involved in the offense and is currently in the Jefferson County Jail on unrelated charges. This case was solved due to SRO McCallin’s familiarity and rapport with students and his tenacity in case follow-up that provides all of us a tremendous deterrent for continued acts of violence by these local youth. Great job SRO McCallin, Detective Naumann, Corporal Nesbitt and Officer Robenalt!

Shots Fired Calls

This past weekend we had multiple reports of “Shots Fired” to our Dispatch Center at 303-277-0211, although we had several more reports on our Nextdoor site. I would like to encourage neighbors to call our Dispatch Center at the above number if they hear gunshots. It is often difficult to pinpoint the exact location of the gunfire but our officers will do an area check of your neighborhood looking for both suspects and bullet shell casings. Additionally, as it’s sometimes difficult to locate the shell casings late at night, if you were to find shell casings please notify Dispatch and our officers will stop by and retrieve them. Our department is working with the Denver ATF on a metro area wide program to link and identify these shooters and your help would be very much appreciated!

Nextdoor and Neighborhood Watch

Our Edgewater Police Department Volunteers are researching methods to increase our Neighborhood Watch participation and participation in Nextdoor Edgewater. Both of these programs allow us to communicate more efficiently with residents for civic events and crime prevention purposes. Please consider inviting your neighbors to participate in Nextdoor Edgewater and contacting our Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Lorenzo – volunteers@edgewaterpd.com to get more information on making your neighborhood safer.

Stolen Vehicles

On 10/19 a resident exited his home in the 2400 block of Marshall Street and found that unknown suspect(s) had attempted to steal his Nissan Murano. The thief backed his Murano into his BMW parked directly behind but was unable to get the Murano out of the tight parking space and fled without taking the vehicle.

On 10/21 at 10:50 PM a caller heard a Honda Accord revving its engine in the parking lot of 2800 Harlan St. The caller went out to the parking lot and observed the Honda speed off southbound on Harlan St. The caller recognized the Honda as his neighbors and went over and knocked on the neighbor’s door. At that time both caller and neighbor realized that the Honda had just been stolen by an unknown suspect.

Thank You Notes from Neighbors – Kudo’s

The laptops in our patrol vehicles which our officers use on a daily basis are four years old. Volunteer Frank Kyper was able to coordinate the donation of two used Panasonic Toughbook laptops from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office which for the first time allows us to have spare laptops for training, for when an in-car laptop goes down, or for incident management purposes. These laptops cost over $4,000 each when new and we would like to thank the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for their generous donation and to Frank Kyper for his diligence in acquiring the laptops!

I’m grateful for the 99.9% of the time that is uneventful – thanks Chief Mackey! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Corporal Geerdes while he protects us during the night hours. I feel extremely safe and confident taking my dog for walks at night (due to my late shift work schedule).

Thank you to our outstanding police volunteers, Frank Kyper, Lorenzo Rendon and Dave Suter for the countless hours they are contributing to making our community and city a safer place to live, work and play! Chief Mackey

Neighbor’s notes and “Kudo’s” are placed in the lobby of the police station and placed in the respective officer’s personnel files – thanks for sharing!
