Three officers from the Gilbert Police Department received recognition for their efforts in stopping a series of vandalism and burglaries at a local business.
Officers Derek McDougall, Michael Holyoak and Ric Borom all received certificates for their efforts in apprehending the suspects in seven repeated attempts to vandalize and burglarize the Arizona Animal Wellness Clinic in the town. The arrests occurred on Nov. 17 when the suspects attempted to gain entry to the clinic by throwing a cinderblock through a window. One teen was arrested and charged with nine crimes related to the event.
ADT presented the certificates to the officers during a ceremony on Dec. 9, and also donated a $5,000 grant to the Gilbert Police Alumni Association.
