Suspect in overnight thefts caught after jump from roof

Good police work and a tip from the public are being cited as keys to an early morning arrest of a subject who jumped from a second story roof in a failed attempt to escape.

The 20-year-old man was the target of an investigation involving yet another rash of thefts from vehicles similar to those reported over a several week span earlier this spring. Officials believe he was involved in most, if not all, of the break-ins.

Although charges have yet to be filed in any of the cases, the suspect is currently jailed on a probation hold as the investigation continues.
