Arrest Made for Motor Vehicle Theft- Community Advisory

On July 1st, 2011 at 12:28 a.m. in the 7200 block of Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park Police officers observed a stolen vehicle occupied by three males traveling southbound toward Washington DC. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop at the intersection of 4th Street and Cedar Street as vehicle attempted to flee. Takoma Park Police officers successfully stopped the vehicle and detained all three suspects without incident. The Metropolitan Police Department arrived on scene to assist in the arrests.

Morris Houston Grant was arrested for Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Theft over $1,000, and Driving Without a License. Two juveniles were also detained and released to guardians. This was another great example of collaboration between the Takoma Park Police Department and the Metropolitan Police Department.
