March 2014 Crime Statistics


CRIME ALERT: - On Wednesday May 14, 2014 in the late afternoon a home in the 100 block of S. 2nd Street was burglarized by 3 females in their late teens – early twenties.  Entrance was gained through a basement window.  An alert Colwyn Police Officer who just got off duty witnessed the girls running out of the property and was able to apprehend one almost immediately. 

Without the use of a police radio since the officer was on his way home, he utilized his cell phone and was able to get assistance from additional Colwyn Police officers on duty.  The two other suspects should be apprehended soon.  Job Well Done by the Colwyn Police! 

Colwyn Police are reminding residents to make sure their basement and first floor windows and doors are secure at all times.
