Alert police work by Miami-Dade Police Kendall District Officer Esteban Morua (center) on Sept. 25 earned honors from Citizens Advisory Committee chair Barry White (left) and Capt. John Webb. On a “hot spot” (frequent crime scene area) detail on Aug. 27, Officer Morua responded to a car burglary in the area of SW 120th Street and 121st Avenue, contacting the victim and getting a description of articles taken from the vehicle. Making a quick canvass of the area with the victim, Officer Morua spotted and halted the subjects who were positively identified and detained while he recovered $200 in stolen property. His quick response and alertness in the successful apprehension and arrest of two subjects earned him recognition as Officer of the Month for August in the Kendall District.
