Hutchinson Police Department News

Today Ofc. Carey was dispatched to the west side of the city to check the welfare of an elderly female. Upon arrival Ofc. Carey determined that this resident was well, but was upset over the fact she hired someone to mow her yard and the job wasn’t completed. She was worried the City Code Enforcement would be concerned about the height of her grass and Ofc. Carey saw the resident was emotionally upset about her yard. Ofc. Carey retrieved a lawn mower, returned to this residence and mowed the yard for this homeowner. This sweet lady was very thankful for what Ofc. Carey did for her and thanked him multiple times. Ofc. Carey went above and beyond his normal duties this morning and it isn’t every day you see an officer mowing a yard in full uniform. GREAT JOB OFC. CAREY!!!

At around 1pm today a male individual appeared in front of city hall carrying this gun. the man asked for a city hall employee to come outside and meet him. 911 was immediately called and as our officers responded, they realized that the man had left walking westbound. The officers intercepted him while he was still carrying this gun. The officers ordered him to lay the gun down. This gun was later determined to be a pellet gun. This man put himself and others at risk of serious injury or death. PLEASE do not display toy guns or even BB or pellet guns with the thought that there is no harm in it. Law Enforcement Officers can't predict that the gun is not a true firearm or a toy. This gun appears to be real and will be perceived by Law Enforcement as dangerous. Thankfully this particular case did not result in any injuries. We don't want anyone hurt and we don't want our officers needlessly placed in a situation like this.
