We still need you to be vigilant way out there, every conscious of your surroundings, being mindful of unknown subjects there in parking lots. When you when you pull up to get out of the vehicle, be mindful of where you park your vehicle in reference to lighting, uh, and trees and realizing that things of that nature Uh, please don't leave your car running while it is unoccupied. Uh, that you just afford someone the opportunity to make you become a victim. And when you're out shopping, by all means, if it would be possible shopping groups of the targets or the victims that we have encountered all have been or appeared to be by themselves single. So just if you stop in a group shop in the group, make yourself less of a target. Uh, and another safety tip is trying to avoid these acts like let go and offer up in reference to making purchases Pay attention to the red flags that are presented. Uh, it always goes back to my good or my instinct was telling me If it starts telling you, then start believing it. But the attention to very flags, meaning if they want to change the location last minute understand that this is a plot and employ thio get you out of an element and by all means be sofrito asked him to meet you at the police station in reference to exchange in these the persons that maybe make it. And if they thought that that should raise a red flag that you know that hey, something may not be quite white, right? With this individual And also lastly, remember, if you have any tips for us in reference to this case or any criminal activity that you may see going on throughout the city, you want to call it crime stoppers. 43 tips. That's 43 8477 Any questions regarding Yes. Can you update us on the number events that have happened now? We started in October, and so where are we number wise on. And when you made the arrest of the two juvenile's that the crimes kind of stopped. Well, as as far as the number of events were up around eight actual events that have taken place. Um, I could say that without jeopardizing investigation that it's somewhat slowed way won't discount that. There still may be some copycats in the area or there may. And again, we're still on the lookout for this one individual that is directly involved in this. And you also mentioned the charges. You're mistaking to say that they're charged with murder or attempted murder. Well, good question. The one of the subjects that we arrested involved in the in the, um, carjacked or the robbery trend he was actually warranted for, uh, September murder case. So those warrants was served on him. That's why, uh, that was interjected and into that when I said first degree murder. So it wasn't a mistake. It was. He has been charged first agreement, but it's not related to our current rob richer. And this was a previous charge that he will be facing. And so you're dealing with juveniles. We won't get any names or pictures on them. We understand that, But how are you trying to identify the one person that you're looking for and happen we help do that happened? Public health without, you know, reveal building the picture of the, um in house he has been identified. Were just working now to try Thio apprehend them so we know who you are. Um, so it's just a matter of time. Okay, Point of clarification. When with these juveniles charged charge zone. Uh, November The 19th is when they were arrested. That's when they were originally charged. That was when we had enough of information and facts. Thio go along with I'm getting the probable cause. Thio charges there were a couple of Carjackings. How many vehicles have you been able to recover since since we have recovered four vehicles that were, uh, involved in this, we're still missing our Nissan versa. We've recovered multiple weapons, turn searches and search warrants that were executed. It was the first of the woman that was the rental car. No, sir. The versa was resist. You drive. That was what we believed to be the initial, um of spiral or transit leading up to all the advanced act which followed. So you've got three teams. Is this gang related at all. Have you been able to turn that? Well, I'm not at liberty to say that at this point again. We don't wanna do anything to jeopardize investigation, because we still are in the process of okay, this individual that we were looking for and also potentially identify another individuals that are involved in. So let me let me have a little bit for the update. Kartika. What? We're here. What? It really leads to the hard work to narrowing down the most egregious ones. But what we have uncovered is there are other crimes that happened and it continue to happen. Even last night, we had a robbery that occurred last night that was not related to this one. But it was a result of someone leaving their car running or some of being complacent with their environment. And that's what's really, really important for right now, we're in a holiday season. People are stopping. People are more relaxed because they're going with their family and they're thinking it's just like but no, that crime is going to continue to a car. But we're gonna work, continues. We are in Faith Hill. And as you do crime and Faith Bill Associate. Ah, yeah! Ah, yeah.
