Neighbors detain suspected thief for officer’s arrival

In the early morning hours of Monday, November 9, security cameras at the home of Cortney Young on Park Ln. captured images of a man stealing her bicycle valued at $181.

Neither officers nor neighbors were able to identify the suspect. Later that same evening around 11 p.m., the same suspect was seen trying to break into vehicles at the same location. The suspect, Cristian Ernesto Alvarado, age 23 of Mount Pleasant, then tried to flee the scene on Ms. Young’s bicycle. Several neighbors helped to detain Mr. Alvarado until police could arrive. For more about this and other incidents handled by local law enforcement this week, see the November 19 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
