Upon the arrest of Mohammed Pedro Whitaker this INSIDER SCOOP reveals it was actually tech AND community testimony that lead to a major break in this case for KCPD.

Check it:

"Near the Grandview Triangle, and on Monday April 7th around 5:30PM, had to make several trips to Grandview and back from 435 Eastbound from Holmes to 71 Southbound and returning 71 Northbound and 435 Westbound, and I noticed KCMO police cruisers with the license plate readers mounted on the rear of the vehicle sitting on the shoulder. I witnessed 4 total going in and out of the Triangle area. I saw 2 more the next day.

License plate readers were not mentioned in the presser this morning, and this was CLEARLY a method used to help catch Mohammed Pedro Whitaker."

Whatever works.

Channel 41's website has a link to the probable cause statement. It's clear the various police agencies did an outstanding job and should be commended. Oh, and perhaps under the influence of a "green leafy substance" the police found at his home, one night while under surveillance he was seen entering a business at "1717 Main." I don't have to tell the astute readers of this blog what location THAT is!

They mentioned license plate readers in the probable cause statement. Nobody is trying to hide that fact. Your kickass tipster is an idiot if he thinks it's a secret. I agree that it is kind of scary what those readers do though.

It was in the PC, and anyone with half a brain would know once the Feds got involved it was Game Over.

But between Tony, Alonzo, Patsy and elStinko, there's not half a brain available.

TKC kick ass tipsters is hipster slang for "cut-and-paste" and take credit for it.

More like plagiarism than kick ass tipster.

@ 8:03 nobody cares about integrity. We just like to bust Tony in the chops. He has thick skin and we like him. But know that we will fuck with him hard. That's a big reason for his blog's popularity. Tony knows that we mean no disrespect toward him personally.

It's all in good fun. Lighten up. Your description of KCC was excellent though.

Yep, but thank god we can still kill citizens over misdemeanor traffic offenses when we chase vehicles through the middle of town. Citizens ought to be pissed knowing the city phas access to the the technology and would rather crate chaos.

Did you see the witness descriptions?

What was he wearing?


March 29: Victims three and four contacted Kansas City, MO, police. They said they were driving west on Ward Parkway between Shawnee Mission Parkway and State Line Road about 1 p.m., and were behind a dark turquoise four-door sedan. The suspect's vehicle then got on the woman's left side and she heard a loud pop noise. Suspect vehicle veered off and continued south on State Line Road. Woman saw a bullet hole on her left passenger side where her daughter was sitting. A spent .380-caliber bullet was recovered. The woman said the suspect was wearing a black hoodie.

March 29: A victim contacted Leawood, KS, police after getting shot at near eastbound I-435 at the State Line Road exit ramp about 2 p.m. They reported seeing a suspect wearing black hoodie which was pulled over his head. The suspect also had a black ski mask and dark sunglasses on and was driving a dark metallic green sedan suspect vehicle.

April 9: Tip came in. The caller said that on March 29 between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. an early to mid-90s green Dodge Neon with Illinois license plates was seen in a restaurant parking lot at Blue Ridge and Holmes in Martin City, MO. The caller said the driver wore a black hoodie with ski mask and entered the restaurant, then left and their actions were very suspicious.

April 9: A detective made contact with witnesses who said they saw suspicious activity on March 30. The witnesses said they spotted a turquoise vehicle driving westbound on Red Bridge at an extremely slow speed. As the witness sat at stop sign, the suspect stopped right in front of her and the driver stared at her. The suspect at one point suddenly slammed on their brakes in an apparent attempt to force the witness to pass him. The suspect wore a hoodie despite the 70-degree temperatures. He also wore a cloth mask over his face. The witness got full Illinois license plate number.

April 14: Search warrants were obtained for the home on 136th Street in Grandview. An ATF Special Agent and his explosive detecting K-9 were sent in and the K-9 hit on a dresser in the bedroom. The dresser contained a black bandana, 31 live rounds of .380 caliber ammunition, an empty .380 magazine, a handgun, sunglasses and three black hoodie sweatshirts, among other things.

The license plate readers are KCPD equipment, not the Feds. While the Feds provided assistance in the investigation, the big breaks and countless man hours were by and large KCPD. And no, I'm not KCPD.

A license plate prominently displayed on the front and back of the car, not even concealed by the glass of the passenger area is pretty much the definition of public to me.

It seems a little janky when the cops drive up and down the streets to pop people with expired tags parking on the streets but I don't see any reason why your license plate can't be photographed/scanned.

My congratulations to all of the law enforcement personnel involved. For once, the "no snitching" code was in in effect. I wish we could suspend it forever.

Look at that kids face and tell me he don't look like he could be Obama's son.

This hood rat was about stupid. Shooting at cars with a bb gun on steroids and using his own license plates. Then trying to buy ANOTHER 380.

No this idiot was about as stupid as they come. Those chimps at the Zoo could have done more damage.

This guy needs to be locked up for life for being stupid. And that's a fact jack.
