Two KC Men Charged in Armed Robbery Conspiracy, Including Three Raytown Robberies Jerry D. Patterson, 21, and Michael A. Harris, 19, both of Kansas City, were charged in a criminal complaint filed under seal in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo., on Monday, Oct. 30, 2017. That complaint was unsealed and made public upon the arrests and initial court appearances of Patterson and Harris. According to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Patterson and Harris were involved in a conspiracy to commit 10 armed robberies at area businesses over a four-week period in September and October 2017, including three Raytown robberies in October (CVS-5310 Blue Ridge Bd., Dollar General-5105 Blue Ridge Bd., and Walgreens-9300 Gregory Bd.) More information may be found here: https://www.justice.gov/usao-wdmo/pr/two-kc-men-charged-armed-robbery-conspiracy. It’s a good reminder that not all crimes that occur in Raytown are isolated to only Raytown. They are occasionally part of a series of crimes that occur across the metro area. When a series is identified, we work with other affected agencies to pool our resources and investigate the series or “crew” that is perpetrating the crimes. When that joint investigation occurs, our ability to share information is very limited, so that the investigation is not jeopardized. We’ve had to do the same thing with other robbery series that have affected our local businesses in the recent past. We just ask for patience while our detectives work. If the cases are solved, like these cases were, the payoff of an arrest or indictment is worth all of that time and effort. Great work to all of the detectives from the involved agencies and our own! #17-3424 #17-3484 #17-3528

Raytown Sergeant Jared Rogers and Detective Tom Greer were honored by the Kansas City Chiefs during Monday Night Football as Hometown Hero’s. The officers were assisting the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department with security at Arrowhead when they saw a man have a seizure and collapse. Both officers rushed to assist him until paramedics arrived. The man stopped breathing and was transported to a local hospital. Because of their actions the man survived and was able to join both officers on the sideline during the game. The #Kansas City Chiefs presented each officer with a commemorative football for their heroic actions. Our thanks to Doug Shoemaker for capturing the moment on Arrowvision and sharing with us. @DShoemakerJCPD, @Chiefs
