Several Charleston communities have been on edge for the past month, as a rash of burglaries and car break-ins had neighbors scrambling to protect their belongings and themselves.
Thursday, police nabbed the man who they think is behind at least one of the crimes...40-year-old Glen Hoylman, Jr.
"One of the most invasive crimes we investigate is burglary. Your home is your sanctuary and it's a real violation," said Chief of Detectives, Lt. Steve Cooper.
Most of the break-ins took place in normally quiet communities in South Hills and Kanawha City. Police say Hoylman broke into a home on Louden Heights Road to steal jewelry and electronics, possibly for drug money.
"These types of criminals become desperate for money. They're looking for their next fix. And they don't really care how they get it," explained Cooper.
Eyewitness News caught up with South Hills resident, Ted Salyer last weekend. He says he's sick of the crime in a neighborhood that's supposed to be safe.
"The fact that somebody thinks they have the right to take something from someone else is just absolutely beyond me. I don't get it at all. I hope they wake up one of these days and realize just what kind of a mess they've caused for a lot of different people and get their act straightened up," said Salyer.
Police say Hoylman is just one of the people involved in this. And they're confident they will round them all up, and help bring some security back to the residents.
More arrests are pending. If you have any information, call Charleston Police at 304-348-6480.
