“These individuals are violent and have shown they are willing to commit these crimes in broad daylight. We are tired of the violence, the community is tired of the violence, and we are going to keep putting these people in prison until it stops.” PPD Chief Mark Harcrow said. “Our Detectives started with nothing on this case and worked day and night to get these guys put away. They did an excellent job.”
