Recent public attention has been focused on these as reported in the media and with numerous citizen posts on social media.  As such, in recent days, a portion of our Detectives were exclusively assigned to work on the problems being reported in that area.  Based on their hard work and proactive investigations, the department believes we have captured the main culprit responsible for several of these property crimes.  It is believed this person bears a similar resemblance to images recently posted on social media of a person committing these crimes, and this person will eventually be linked to many of the other recent property crimes in that area.

Numerous charges are expected based on the evidence and probable cause gathered to date.  The investigations are on-going and we anticipate more charges as the investigations unfold.
