Crime Notes: Peeping Tom caught on Madison Avenue

This just in: A Peeping Tom was caught by Plainfield police about 4:00 AM this morning after a foot chase ending on the front steps of a Madison Avenue residence.

According to my source, the peeping perp told police he was on his way to visit his girlfriend.

Also received a call last evening about three recent shootings in Plainfield, none of which have been reported in the media.

I noted on CLIPS recently that a young man had been arrested and charged with attempted murder in a shooting on Moffett Avenue on May 16. Though that shooting went initially unreported in the media, it happened in the neighborhood of someone involved in the primary election campaign who had anecdotally reported it to the rest of the campaign team the next day.
