On April 20, 2018 while on patrol, PFC. Lawrin Demo observed a vehicle traveling Southbound on St. Rt. 4 in the area of St. Rt. 725 West and noticed the vehicle displayed illegally excessive window tinting. PFC. Demo conducted a traffic stop on this vehicle and identified three subjects inside, and noticed the aroma of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. Through PFC. Demo's alert investigation, he was alerted to clues that tipped him off to the presence of firearms within reach of the occupants and took the necessary steps to secure the suspects inside the vehicle. Upon closer examination of the vehicle, PFC. Demo discovered a 9mm handgun under the passenger seat and a second 9mm handgun in the center console. Both loaded and chambered "at the ready". PFC. Demo also found marijuana and a number of various type pills and capsules that were later found to be revealed as - 51 capsules of Heroin/Fentanyl and 11 capsules of cocaine. This combination of effective investigation and immediate apprehension makes for excellent and highly effective policing. PFC. Demo was awarded the "Lightning Arrest Medal" for these actions. A job very well done, PFC. Demo.

With the permission of the folks at KOENIG EQUIPMENT, we used their parking lot in the 2600 block of SR 4 as our staging and investigation location.

Surveillance footage taken from April 8, 2018 from Kern Drive. Note that the suspect attempts to open two vehicles that happen to be locked before successfully entering an unlocked vehicle. If you have any information on this suspect, please contact Germantown Police at 937-855-6567. Again, we would like to reiterate that it is necessary for everyone to lock their vehicles.

We are seeing another surge in unlocked vehicles being trespassed into, and some of these vehicles have had items stolen from them. We are investigating and have upped our patrols in the areas effected. As of right now, we do not have any suspects. We encourage you to lock your car doors and close your garage doors especially at night. Locking up does deter theft.

THEFT SUSPECT - There have been recent thefts from unlocked vehicles in the city over the past week. Last night, The Reserves plat was the latest area targeted by the suspect(s).

If you know who this person may be, please contact the Germantown Police Department at 937-855-6567. Please remember to ALWAYS lock your car doors and take your personal belongings into your home. This does greatly help deter theft from happening.
