Sheraden Residents Make 'Citizen's Arrest' On Suspected Robber

When a vandal began breaking into Sheraden homes and bashing cars, residents took matters into their own hands and made a citizen's arrest.
On Saturday, during Sheraden's trick or treating, Deidre Crowley, 22, is accused of stealing items from cars along Thornton Avenue.
“The girl was trying to break in people’s cars,” said neighbor Cadiadra Kendrick. “She had rocks and bricks. “You know, it's not going to be tolerated in our neighborhood."
According to the criminal complaint, Crowley went from Thornton Avenue to Brutus Way, tugging on door handles and even getting inside and ransacking some unlocked cars.
Neighbors saw what was happening and stepped into action, police said. They called 911 and when Crowley tried to flee, some neighbors wouldn't let her.
“We have to pull together as a community and do something,” said Kendrick. “Something is better than nothing. They would not let her go. There was nowhere for her to go."
Police said Sheraden residents stick together and that police cooperation and interaction helps make the community a safer place to live.
"I'm proud of my neighbors,” said Kendrick. “I'm proud. I'm proud of my neighbors."

This is what makes our community special, neighbors who care!
