WEAPONS ARREST – Last night at about 6:30 pm, Officer Macierz was on patrol when he was flagged down by a resident who reported that their roommate had started an argument with them, and pointed a shotgun at them in their home. A similar incident happened last week as well but was not reported.
Officer Macierz contacted the suspect, arrested them, and followed up with drafting and serving a search warrant on the suspect’s bedroom. Officers located an illegal short-barreled “sawed-off” shotgun in the suspect’s room, along with ammunition, which was consistent with the victim’s statement.
The suspect was booked on weapons and brandishing charges, and the shotgun was seized.
Great job, Officer Macierz!
