On 10/16/14, Flint Police took a report from an elderly male who stated that he invited someone into his residence and later discovered that several items were taken from his house including cash, jewelry and a firearm. Charles Walt (25) has been arrested, charged and arraigned for this incident for Larceny in a Building, Larceny of a Firearm and Stealing/Retaining a Financial Transaction Device. The Flint Police Department would like to remind everyone to please be careful who you invite into your home.

Cortez Skelton (23) was charged with Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Possession of a Short Barrelled Rifle, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Felony Firearm and Delivery/Manufacture of Cocaine.

Thanks to all the volunteers who came out for our Halloween Task Force.  For two days yellow flashing lights could be seen across Flint. Let's keep it going with the Blue Badge Citizens Radio Patrol, together we can do it. Please contact Lieutenant Mark Boudreau or Officer Tanya Meeks at 810-237-6800.

Flint Neighborhoods United has started a GoFundMe page to raise funds to purchase a ballistic vest for our K-9 Edo. Any money left over will be used by the department to purchase food and pay for veterinarian bills. The Flint Police Department is overwhelmed by both the rapid pace at which this project has gained support from the community and the sheer amount of people who have pledged that support. To all of our dedicated community members out there, we say Thank You. This kind of outpouring is an encouraging reminder of how involved and compassionate people in our area can be.
