Another Bait Car Activation Nets 2 More Arrests
Second activation this month
Early this morning (about 12:20 a.m.), our bait car was activated and it automatically sent a streaming video of the thief to our Communications Center. Dispatcher Regina Cortez immediately alerted Officers Hearn and Fones and she also sent an image of the thief directly to Tyler S. Kiett
their smart phones. The officers responded to the area of
Kirkside Drive and Montgomery Street right away while simultaneously notifying County Police. Officer Hearn spotted two males in front of a home in the 5600 block of Kirkside and they fled on foot when they saw Officer Hearn.
Village and County officers—including a K9 team—worked together to arrest Tyler S. KIETT, 21 years old (pictured above right), of Washington, DC in the back yard of a home in the 5600 block of Montgomery Street. A juvenile male was located hiding underneath a car in the driveway of a home in the 5600 block of Montgomery Street; he was also arrested.
Investigation revealed that, in addition to the bait car, a second car (unlocked) belonging to a resident had been entered on Kirkside Drive. Tyler KIETT was taken to the Central Processing Unit in Rockville and charged with entering both cars. The juvenile was taken to the 2nd District Station of the Montgomery County Police where he was processed and turned over to his father.
Another great catch by the team of Cortez, Hearn and Fones in partnership with MCPD!
