CMPD Officers will continue to work to remove these type of career criminals from society before they can repeatedly prey on our community.  These arrests are the result of the community and police working together. Had it not been for an engaged neighbor calling 9-11 to report this activity, these individuals would likely still be free to victimize our community. 
The CMPD urges the community to call 9-11 whenever see or hear anything suspicious.
