Proactive police work and citizen assistance led to the apprehension of Eleonore Pauline Creasman, 36, who has been charged by the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office with burglaries at three homes on Mt. Zion Road.  


Patrol deputies first responded to a home in the 200 block of Mt. Zion Road just after 4 a.m. on Wednesday after a woman investigated noises in her kitchen and found a female intruder. The suspect fled when she was confronted.   


Efforts to locate the suspect were unsuccessful until several hours later when she emerged from a wooded area and asked a resident for a ride to her home on 5th Street.


Investigators went to 5th Street and took Ms. Creasman into custody.


In the meantime, investigation of the burglary continued. Two vehicles at the home had been entered.  Items from both were stacked near the garage and strewn through a wooded area behind the home. All of the property was recovered except for a woman’s purse and wallet.


While the investigation continued, another resident of Mt. Zion Road discovered a number of tools and a tool kit missing off his carport. The tools were recovered from the back yard of that residence.


Several hours later, a call was received from the 300 block that chainsaws, skill saws, a fishing tackle box and an electric scooter missing from a third location.  The scooter and tackle box were recovered.


Bradley County Sheriff’s deputies also recovered a 2006 Nissian Altima that was reported stolen to the Cleveland Police Department on Tuesday.  The vehicle had been abandoned behind a residence in the 500 block of Mt. Zion Road. 


Ms. Creasman has charges of aggravated burglary, two counts of burglary of an auto, two counts of burglary and five counts of theft over $1,000.
