Three Cheers for Granada Police Dept.

March 26, 2010

Dear Nica Times:

Some of you may have heard that we have had several robberies of Granada businesses in the past week, reportedly with a pistol. As a board member of the Amigos de la Policía, I expressed my concern to the Granada police chief. They made it a priority and I was pleasantly surprised to hear that their diligence paid off quickly.

Four suspects are now in custody and a revolver and some stolen goods were recovered by police after a raid on the suspects’ home last weekend.

We would also like to extend our condolences to the family of the Granada policeman who was shot and killed while apprehending a person during a recent drug bust.

The police are doing their job as best they can with few resources. Please consider joining the Granada Amigos de la Policía to show your support.

Darrell Bushnell
