Police Charge Suspect in Peeping Incident

The Glendale Police Department charged 37-year-old Calese Carron Crowder for peeping while loitering on Monday following an incident on Aug. 6, according to a press release from Sgt. Victor Jackson, the department’s public information officer. Crowder was arrested again on Thursday after violating orders to register as a sex offender.
Crowder, who has emerged as a person of interest in related cases, appeared in court on Monday for arraignment in the Glendale Superior Court, entered a plea of “no contest” and was sentenced to 60 days in county jail and ordered to enter a sexual impulse rehabilitation program.
In the Aug. 6 incident, Crowder was accused of peeping into the home of a Glendale family. The family, including children, were home at the time of the incident. Glendale police officers were quickly dispatched, and the investigation continued last week, Jackson said. A protective order was served in the court on behalf of the victim’s family.
After being sentenced on Monday, Crowder was remanded to the custody of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department to begin his jail term, Jackson said. On Wednesday, however, Glendale police detectives found that Crowder had been released from LASD custody. As a component of a previous arrest and sentencing, Crowder was ordered to register as a sex offender which Glendale police confirmed he did not do; this violation led to his most recent arrest.
Crowder was scheduled to be arraigned for the second time this week on Friday in the Glendale Superior Court. As of the News-Press deadline Friday, Crowder was being held in the Glendale City Jail on $20,000 bail.
“The Glendale Police Department appreciates the support and cooperation of the Glendale community [and] remains committed to the safety of those that live, work and visit our city,” Jackson said.
The department asks anyone with information to assist in this case to call (818) 548-4911.
To remain anonymous, call the L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477 or go directly to lacrimestoppers.org.
