Suspect in Custody
Staff Photographer Jim Beckel left the office on Tuesday morning looking for weather art. Less than five minutes later, he heard an interesting call over his police scanner. Here’s what Jim wrote in his cutlines:
“Headquarters, Suspect in Custody.” Police officers converged on a northwest Oklahoma City neighborhood Tuesday morning, Nov. 10, 2009, after responding to a call of a suspicious subject. Officers said the subject then ran from them and attempted to break into an occupied residence. After searching door to door, looking in trash carts, parked cars, back yards and behind fences, an officer spotted the suspect hiding between houses near NW 81 and Harvey Place. The man ran again, sprinting across a park and into the back yards of neighboring homes. Within 5 minutes, the officer in pursuit radioed to headquarters that the suspect was in custody. He was arrested in the 300 block of NW 79, just a few blocks from where he was originally sighted.
Jim ended up with interesting pictures and an exciting morning, but we still don’t have any weather art.
