Slashed patrol cars’ tires lead to arrest

May 30, 2009


— It turns out that calling police to brag about slashing the tires on four patrol cars isn’t such a good idea.

Police in the Kansas City suburb of Mission announced Friday afternoon that they had arrested Jesse L. Sellers Jr. The 19-year-old Overland Park man is accused of slashing the tires Wednesday while the cars were parked in a department lot.

He faces one municipal count of criminal damage to property.

Police said they stopped Sellers for a traffic violation earlier on the same morning that he was accused of slashing the tires.

Police said the voice on the dash cam video in the police cruiser matched the voice on the 911 call that bragged about slashing the tires.

Mission police Maj. Mark Sullivan said it cost $1,000 to fix the tires.
