Minneapolis police, Hennepin sheriff: recent helicopter activity combating rash of carjackings


December 16, 2020

Hennepin County Sheriff David Hutchinson and Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo discuss a joint effort last week involving helicopers to rein in carjackings which resulted in 41 arrests.

To combat a rash of recent violent carjackings, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said his department teamed up with the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office and Minnesota State Patrol in using helicopter surveillance to make more than 40 arrests.

The three-day crackdown last week resulted in 41 felony arrests and the recovery of seven stolen vehicles and five guns, Arradondo said at a Tuesday evening news conference inside City Hall while flanked by Sheriff David Hutchinson.

"We're teaming up to make sure people can live their lives and not get their car stolen in broad daylight by a few bad actors," Hutchinson said.
