Twin Cities Apprehension Team Relies on Social Media, YouTube Videos For Exposure

The Twin Cities Apprehension Team has been growing rapidly in the social media world, specifically on their YouTube Channel, where subscribers have been growing rapidly. This may be part of a growing demand for transparency in law enforcement nationwide, according to Stew Peters, the agency’s lead investigator. “We are not in the public sector, however the job is very similar, and I think with the lack of footage available to the public, this kind of content interests most folks”, said Peters.

As part of the approach to apprehensions, TCAT oftentimes posts wanted fugitives on their Facebook page, or even on their Twitter account @TcatMN.

The busy Minneapolis-based apprehension team has recently put a trailer video on their YouTube page, which can be seen HERE.

“We hope more and more will subscribe to our various outlets”, said Peters while continuing, “the larger the audience we have in the social media world, the less likely it is that someone will be able to hide…”.

Jeffrey Allen Mcaloon is in custody after being discovered in a Southside alley, 2500 block of Bryant Ave S, Minneapolis.

1 May, 2020 – The Twin Cities Apprehension Team ended a week-long investigation into the whereabouts of wanted fugitive Jeffrey Allen Mcaloon after locating the wanted felony fugitive in an alleyway in the Whittier neighborhood.

Mcaloon had felony warrants for burglary, auto theft, receiving stolen property and drugs. During a surveillance detail, TCAT agents came across a stolen vehicle that had been in multiple high speed chases with the Minneapolis Police Department over the past several weeks, and identified the driver as Jeffrey Allen Mcaloon.

Bail investigators observed the vehicle in the alley until a TCAT K9 unit arrived in the area, at which point the arrest team approached the vehicle, occupied by 3 individuals.

Upon approaching the vehicle, Mcaloon fled on foot, but was swiftly taken into custody after a brief struggle behind an apartment complex.

Mcaloon was transported to the Hennepin County jail, where he was evaluated by medical staff and cleared for jail. The Minneapolis Police Department recovered a St Paul stolen Ford Crown Victoria, and stolen plates from an unknown jurisdiction.

Mcaloon was recently highlighted on several posts on social media sites, and is suspected to have been burglarizing several homes in the area over the last several months.
