A large crowd supported the Creston Area Neighborhood Watch flea market Saturday. The event was a fundraiser for the organization.

The neighborhood watch was started about nine months ago, following an outbreak of entering and stealing from people's homes and cars.

Watch member Tammy McFarland says since the watch started, "Crime in Creston has dropped lots."

The group has purchased 14 neighborhood watch signs, funded from "people's own pockets."

The group received a small grant and purchased two-way radios to communicate when members are out on patrol.

McFarland said "The phone tree has been the most help. The goal is to keep our neighborhood as safe as possible."
