PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) Some people in Pulaski County jumped into action and took matters into their own hands after hearing reports of possible break-ins and a burglar on the loose.

Concerned citizens created a neighborhood watch to protect one another.

Their bond was put to the test Wednesday when they got word that an ex-felon by the name of Jeffery Carrender was allegedly breaking into vehicles and homes. by the end of the day, the neighborhood watch had Carrender surrounded.

Now, he’s facing a charge of possession of a concealed weapon by a convicted felon.

If you’re a concerned citizen of Pulaski County and you notice suspicious behavior, the community watch group wants you to contact them. You can do so through the Shopville Volunteer Fire Department.
