POLICE OFFICER OF THE MONTH January, 2018 P/O Thomas Gonglik # 4132 P/O Matthew Quinn #4761 On Tuesday, January 16 Officers Gonglik and Quinn were working a marked unit and were in uniform. The officers responded to a radio call for an officer requesting back-up at Algon Avenue and Fox Chase Road. The officer had a vehicle stopped at that location. A white male fled from the vehicle. The male was wearing a grey-hooded black sweater and pants. Officers Gonglik and Quinn observed a white male in the area of 1600 Tustin St. The male fit the description of the male who fled from the vehicle at Algon and Fox Chase. The officers approached the male. The male began to fidget around and was patted down by the officers. A white cylinder fell out of his jacket and fell to the ground. Upon hitting the ground, the cylinder exposed a clear baggie with it being heat sealed and closed. This baggie contained a white, crystal type substance inside, which was believed to be crystal meth. The substance was tested and verified to be crystal meth. The male was charged with manufacturing and possession of a controlled substance. Officers Gonglik and Quinn made an outstanding arrest of drug dealer who is putting poison in our neighborhood. For their effort, the officers are being recognized as our Police Officers of the Month for January, 2018. http://7thpdac.com/police_officer_of_the_month
