'Vigilante Grannies' Help Fight Crime in NC

Ad Feedback

A group of crime-fighting women from North Carolina are showing people they can help their communities no matter how young or old they are.

These "Vigilante Grannies" are three grandmothers who run their very own neighborhood crime watch.

The ladies say they saw increasing vandalism in their area, so they decided to do something about it.

"We get license tag numbers, go to the website, run the number, find out who vehicle belongs to and we write little notes. Fear is just not part of our makeup. That's because we're vigilante grannies," said member Mary Ritch.

"That's a good thing. It's what community policing is all about, citizens coming together to protect their neighborhoods because police can't be everywhere," Stallings Police Chief Mike Dummett said.

The group's work is paying off. Their tips have already led to one arrest.

The women say they love helping the police and that they hope to expand the program into other neighborhoods.
