Default Burglary Suspect

I received bulletins on my cell and home phones about a burglary suspect in our area. I live in The Pinellas. It gave a concise description of the suspect. About 15 minutes later I received another call that they had captured him. Great work by The Sumter Police.

We watched the action on Pinellas, which is our back yard,(literally) with the canine and helicopter. But had no idea what had happened.

A few minutes later we went out and saw multiple squad and unmarked cars at the intersection of 446A and Buena Vista and officers gathered on the golf cart path. Glad they got him.

When they ran down Pinellas with the canine we knew it was serious!! You don't see that every day.

How did you get the updates from Sumter Country Sherriff's office?? We would like to sign up.

"How did you get the updates from Sumter Country Sherriff's office?? We would like to sign up."

You know I have no idea, but last year I signed up for Sumter County Alerts which I assumed was just severe weather. This is the first time I received an alert like this. Home, Cell, and email.

They didn't mention it at the session we attended. I'll have to dig a little deeper!
thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Congratulations to the alert neighbor who called in the suspicious activity in the first place. Didn't turn the other way and didn't say "It's none of my business." It's right out of the old days in America. Excellent!

Superlative police work by the Sumter Sheriff. These people protect all of us. God bless them.

Go here to signup for Code Red Alert....I always get alerts for weather. This is the first time I've had an alert like the one today.

He was seen and reported running across 466A and entered the Village of St James and then people reported him running through yards, then into Buttonwood and people kept the police notified and he was caught.
