Dramatic Police Search in Charlottesville(Source)
April 25, 2010
A couple dozen officers in the Charlottesville Police Department spent an hour searching a 5-block radius around Second Street SE and Elliott Avenue Saturday evening. They jumped fences, used a police dog and cris[s]-crossed the neighborhood but when it was over, there was no indication what the commotion was about.
Police raced around in their patrol cars, ran down streets, even jumped over backyard fences as they searched for at least one unknown suspect.
It’s unclear who they were looking for or why, but around 7:30pm, police detained and handcuffed a pair of men at a nearby apartment complex.
It’s not known if the pair will be charged with any criminal wrong-doing.
