After a professionally trained kickboxer and MMA fighter stopped a shoplifter at a Crestwood grocery store, Police Chief Mike Paillou advises residents how they can help when witnessing a crime.
Last month a professional kickboxer and MMA fighter, who trains other pros at his Crestwood gym, detained a man stealing vodka from the Watson Road Schnucks. "Jesse Finney is a highly trained individual, he is not the average resident," Crestwood Police Chief Mike Paillou said. "I would never recommend a resident get involved in a physical confrontation with a suspect." The department hasn't seen many instances of bystanders stepping in during crimes in action, he said. "A good samaritan stepped in and got killed at Starbucks, which is quite possibly what could happen when an untrained individual gets involved," Paillou said. He was referring to the 2008 death of Roger Kreutz, who died from head injuries he sustained while chasing a tip …

Bill Boston, who has lived in Crestwood for 22 years, is running for alderman.

Tim Trueblood proposed a discussion on private communications between aldermen and potential developers after multiple board members were conacted by Crestwood Court's redevelopers.
Some communications from a Centrum Properties representative sparked a discussion last week among Crestwood aldermen how they should address requests from developers to speak outside city hall walls. The company has been before the board over the last several months in hopes they can introduce a revitalized development at Crestwood Court by the 2014 holiday season. While aldermen approved them as the mall’s developer last month, they have yet to give their recommendation to a specific proposal. Ward II Alderman Tim Trueblood said he received a phone call from a Centrum representative before the board’s previous meeting, but ultimately decided he wasn’t comfortable that the communication was off the record. “I don’t think I should be having…
