On Tuesday, the Concord Police Department arrested a burglary suspect in downtown concord who was carrying a samurai sword at the time of his arrest.
Concord Police said an observant officer (on only her second unsupervised day on the beat) recognized the suspect and made contact, placing the suspect under arrest and confiscating the replica Japanese longsword. Further search of the suspect revealed the stolen property from the business, according to police.
Neither the suspect or victimized business were identified, but police said the building was burglarized in the nighttime hours and the suspect was captured on video. All property was returned to the business owner.
Police further gave a Social Media “way to go” to the investigating officer “Wilkens.”
