New Year's Eve, observant residents of Crowley and police were able to work together to catch a burglary suspect.

Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson says his officers arrested 21-year-old David Adams of Crowley after they say a suspicious person was looking into cars on South Avenue O.

Around two o'clock that morning, officer got to the scene to find a man looking into car. He walked away when he saw police looking at him.

"The officers stopped the suspect and began their investigation. During the investigation, it was discovered that the suspect had property on his possession which had been taken from several vehicles".
