It was car alarms and witnesses that helped ID a suspected burglar in a Sutton Way shopping center parking lot Monday morning around 9:50 AM.
The responding officer got a description of the suspect and he was located nearby with a shopping cart with numerous bags and personal items belonging to the man. The officer made contact and identified the man as Chris Sampson, age 25.
Based on the information, Sampson was taken into custody on a citizen’s arrest for prowling since he did not actually gain access to any of the vehicles.
Sampson was booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility on loitering, prowling and drug related charges.
