Citizens Help Police Nab Suspect

On December 17 at 9:15 am, one of our patrol officers stopped a vehicle in the area of Mesa Drive and Brown Road for a traffic violation. The vehicle pulled into an apartment complex and, as our officer was exiting his patrol car to approach the vehicle, it sped away onto Mesa Drive.

 By the time our officer got back to his vehicle and onto the roadway, the vehicle was out of sight. However, there were other vehicles on the road and those helpful citizens indicated the vehicle fled westbound on Brown Road. As our officer reached Center/Brown additional citizens directed the officer to northbound Center Street. The vehicle was eventually located, abandoned in the 1500 block of North Center Street. Additional officers were in the area and the driver was located hiding in a shed in a residential back yard in the 1500 block of North Pima. 

Ultimately, the driver, identified as Trevor Allen Terry (25), was taken into custody on a burglary warrant out of MCSO and an FTA warrant out of Mesa, which is why he said he ran. He was also charged with trespassing. Were it not for our citizens assisting our officers, we likely would have not located this subject. Thank you Mesa! What a great team we make!
