A suspect, Tyrese Jamal Sales, was arrested Thursday for two counts of breaking and entering a vehicle. Investigators with Athens Police were working on multiple cases involving vehicles that had been broken into, and he became a suspect when he was stopped by Madison Police on November 21.

A credit card that belonged to a victim was found on Sales's person. Investigators searched Sales's home and found several more items that were stolen from vehicles.

Sales was taken to the Limestone County Jail.
