Suspect arrested for burglaries in Jackson Township and other communities

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Mahoning County Sheriff's deputies and area police have arrested a suspect in a series of recent home burglaries.

Authorities surrounded a home in the area of 15900 Mock Road Friday afternoon looking for 26-year old Andrew McCourt.

They found McCourt in a nearby wooded area, placed him under arrest and took him to the Mahoning County Jail.

Jackson Township's police chief Greg Tailon says McCourt is being charged with break-ins in his community.

Chief Tailon tells 21 News that the township has seen four recent burglaries, but the chief believes that McCourt could also be responsible for similar burglaries in Lake Milton, Ellsworth, Berlin, Goshen and Beaver townships.

According to the chief the crimes are similar in that they occur during daylight hours and the homes often are not easily seen from the road. The cases also have the same type of items being taken.

"Jewelry, televisions, VCR or DVD type players, things that they are able to either quickly turn over and get cash for" said Tailon.

The pattern has authorities believing that the same people are involved.
