    Unless someone is killed or a gin fired, MPD could care less about catching the person. When will they start be proactive and doing something about all the robberies, drug dealing, drug use, prostitution and break-ins???

    100% agree with the pro-active approach that is missing, but this is really good news. Glad MPD was able to solve it!
