Off-Duty Cop Busts Repeat Offenders

Thanks to the watchful eyes of an off-duty officer, two repeat offenders are behind bars. Cpl. Linda Overstreet of the Savannah-Chatham Police Department says she noticed Calvin Lawrence and Marcell Coleman trying to break into a car. She then followed them in her own car and called for backup.

Lawrence and Coleman have a history of arrests for entering autos. They're in the Chatham County jail awaiting arraignment.

This is not the first time Cpl. Overstreet noticed criminal activity on her own time. In 2003, she noticed a suspicious trailer. Further investigation found $1 million in stolen property in that trailer.
