Wall of Justice: The search for fugitives in the D.C. area continues
WASHINGTON (ABC7) — ABC7 ON YOUR SIDE is Fighting Back Against Crime with the Wall of Justice.
ABC7 ON YOUR SIDE works with local and national law enforcement agencies across Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. And now you can help!
Each week we show five wanted fugitives on the Wall and feature one of them. In an effort to keep our local communities safe, police want to get these fugitives off the streets.
Monday, December 5, featured fugitive: Jomo Dawes
The Metropolitan Police say Dawes burst into the home of an acquaintance to steal money and jewelry.
“Jomo Dawes, violent offender. He is with a group of individuals who force entry into a residence in our fourth district in DC,” said Dustin Sternbeck, Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson. “Jomo then produces a handgun where he pistol-whips our victim.”
Police say Jomo Dawes is 38 years old, 6’ 2”, and 205 pounds.
If you have information on Jomo Dawes, please call the District of Columbia’s Metropolitan Police Department’s tip line at 202-727-9099 or send a text to 50411.
ABC7 ON YOUR SIDE always asks if you have information on any of the cases you contact the investigating law enforcement agency. You also may call Crime Solvers anonymously at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
ALL PERSONS ON THE WALL ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY
Every fugitive on the Wall of Justice is innocent until proven guilty. The aim is to find them. Once arrested, judges and juries can determine innocence or guilt.
