PSA 102 MPD Team Crack Bust

Lieutenant Micciche reports that, this morning at approximately 12:48am, several First District units heard gunshots near the 700 block of H Street NE. Officers converged on the area, literally in seconds, and observed three subjects leaving the location quickly. As officers attempted to contact the subjects, they fled on foot but were apprehended near 6th & I Street NE. A very large amount of crack cocaine and a significant sum of US Currency were recovered. Two of the subjects were arrested and charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute (PWID)Crack Cocaine.

An extensive canvass of the area for shell casings, firearms, a crime scene, or any victims yielded negative results. An MPD K-9 "Gun Dog" was brought in and swept the area, also with negative results.

All should acknowledge the outstanding police work and a very quick response by our fine First District officers made for a great case.
