The victims reported that at about 8:38 p.m., the suspect took cell phones and pepper spray from them. The suspect then fled on foot toward Stanton Street. No one was injured in the incident.


Crime Watch member does GOOD…

Sometimes we hesitate.. should we call 911 ???
 Don’t. Go with your gut feelings. If it seems suspicious to you..CALL

You know your neighborhood . You know if something is wrong.
A Crime Watch member seen someone trying to get into a house that they do not belong in.. and he called. This was the result …

  Michael Buckley, 18, of Nanticoke was arrested on two warrants at 40 N. Fulton Street at 9:33 a.m. Friday. Buckley initially gave officers a false name. During the arrest he was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia. He was lodged at Luzerne County Correctional Facility and will be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and false identification to law enforcement.


And this alert citizen knew something was amiss ….

 A 17-year old male was arrested for an attempted burglary in South Wilkes-Barre. Police detectives responded to the scene after a call was received about a suspicious male carrying a black bag and knocking on doors. Detectives found the suspect near the corner of Andover and Beech streets with burglar tools in his bag. The suspect will be charged in juvenile court.

If you are reading this, then you are already aware that crime is on the increase and we need people like you to be involved in helping to keep our neighbors and neighborhoods safe. But, that doesn't necessarily translate into being ALERT.
The word “AWARE” means “to be informed, to be familiar with and mindful of.” The word “ALERT” means “to be vigilant, watchful, on the lookout, on one's guard, on one's toes,” and this one I really like: “bright eyed and bushy tailed.” And, this is what my information is all about – being ALERT.

Use your SENSES to protect you, to make you aware of someone's presence. Be comfortable and relaxed but never off your guard. Don't walk outside your apartment or home and be fiddling with your keys, digging around in your handbag or otherwise occupied in a manner that prevents you from being very aware of your surroundings.

Use your EYES to glance back and forth, a panoramic view from right to left, left to right. Never turn your back on anyone. Glance over your shoulder to watch your back.
Did you know your own shadow can be your best friend? If you can see your shadow on the sidewalk in front of you, you can also see the shadow of someone coming up behind you. The same goes for seeing your own shadow on the wall of a building or some other structure. Watch your shadow; watch your back!
