Tonight's News Ten Neighborhood Crime Watch is an excellent example of how observant citizens can help fight crime in their own neighborhood.
In Jackson County, Napoleon Township Police responded to the ten-thousand block of Rexford Road, on a complaint of a suspected break-in of a garage.
An alert neighbor observed two men and a pickup truck he didn't recognize, on his neighbor's property.
He saw the truck contained items he thought belonged to his neighbor,, a pole saw, mini-bike, power washer, chain saw, and a leaf blower.
When he approached the two men, and began calling police, they fled in the pickup at a high rate of speed.
The neighbor followed the pickup, while talking to a 9-1-1 dispatcher about where the suspect's were headed.
As their vehicle approached the area of Napoleon and Huggins roads, a Leoni Township police officer pulled the suspects over.
They were eventually arrested and taken to the Jackson County jail.
The suspects are a 36-year-old from Jackson, and a 25-year-old from Grass Lake, they've been charged with breaking and entering.
Police say they admitted to stealing the items to buy drugs.
Napoleon Township Police Chief Michael Curry credits that observant neighbor with taking two criminals off the streets.
