Citizen’s effort appreciated
Old Monroe Mayor Mike Padella (left) reads a proclamation honoring John Adams (right), for his effort and initiative in assisting law and fire department officials in solving the recent arson cases. Adams shared the tape from his video security system at his business with investigators which led to the arrest of the suspected arsonist whom confessed to setting earlier fires. “Without this video recording, this suspect could still be at large,” said Padella. Old Monroe Police Chief Tony Kirk also presented a citation to Adams from a national police association.
