Tallahassee, Florida - March 6, 2012 -

On Friday March 02, 2012, The Tallahassee Police Department received a call from a concerned citizen, Lacey Colvin, after two males she did not know came to her back porch asking for directions to Georgia. The two left after the males saw there was another person
inside the house. Over the next hour, Ms. Colvin saw a suspicious car driving around in the neighborhood with no apparent reason to be there. Officers arrived in the area and began to watch the suspicious car. The officers watched as one of the occupants began pulling on
door handles and ducking out of view as cars would pass.

The officers made contact with the male and as they did he dropped a gun and was taken into custody. He was read his Miranda Rights and admitted to stealing various items out of cars, including iPod’s, credit cards and a stun gun. The suspect said he came to Tallahassee from Cairo, Georgia intent on burglarizing vehicles. The suspect was arrested on several charges and taken to the Leon County Jail.

“This is an outstanding example of the See Something, Say Something, Do something campaign at work” said Tallahassee Police Chief Dennis Jones. “With the help of our citizens, we are able to get a burglar off the streets and I applaud Ms. Colvin for calling the
police when she saw something was amiss with the situation.”

Arrestee: Issac Edwards DOB: 02/09/90 Black Male
Charges: Auto Burglary
Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon

    Shocking, just shocking!! He doesn't look like a burglar, what with the twisted up knots and all. Another example of wasted potential. He could have been the head night time french fry station executive sous chef....with a little hard work and dedication, of course.

        Jesus didn't make a mistake. The kid made the mistake. God gave him free will and he abused it. He will pay in hell.

      Chuck, you need to learn how to use an apostrophe ... In case you don't know what an apostrophe is, it's this punctuation mark: ' . It is most often used to indicate a contraction (e.g., "Chuck's an idiot" is a contraction of "Chuck is an idiot") or to indicate a possessive (e.g.,"Chuck's lack of education").

        Isn't that the truth. LCSO might show up, not see anyone, and they're gone. I guess at least TPD gave this situation some attention. Maybe Ms. Colvin is a friend of someone. Who knows.

    I am curious, did the citizen ask for her name to be made public? If not, and TPD released it routinely, I won't ever call in a tip. I'd much rather stay out of it and know I'm safe. Please report more on this angle, I normally wouldn't hesitate to step up and help any other citizen or the cops, but I can say without a doubt that I'd have to turn my back if my name had even a remote chance of being made public.

      Wakulla Sheriff's Department did a similar thing to my friend. They told the bad guys my friends name, and the perps ended up not getting arrested. Man was she mad as hell. She did not even apologize. Just some more of stupid Wakulla Law.

        EVERY time I have ever sought help or passed a tip, the person involved was informed the police w/in 24 hours what my name was, and what I said. That includes the time someone abandoned a stolen car on my property and the deputy asked me who i thought in the neighborhood might have done it. It happens real regular, and I do not think it a coincidence. Cuts down on tips, which cuts down on work...

    Looks like the media put her name out there, not TPD.
  • by Sapo on Mar 6, 2012 at 01:25 PM
    i was thinking the same thing. why would you put her name up. It's not like this guys gonna do alot of time.
  • by Ahhh on Mar 6, 2012 at 01:10 PM
    There were 2 guys. What happened to the other one? Didn't he get arrested also?
  • by Anonymous on Mar 6, 2012 at 12:51 PM
    someone is very stupid posting the name of the person that called police. That is ridiculous
