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.”
