In addition to the arrests, officers also recovered a loaded firearm and evidence connecting the group to additional crimes. The robberies the suspects are linked to occurred citywide.
“Through the relentless and collective efforts of the OPD’s Intelligence Division, Robbery Division, Community Resource Officers, Violent Crime Operations Center (VCOC), Patrol, and Ceasefire Division, these five dangerous individuals were safely taken into custody,” said OPD in a social media post.
