Deputies arrest weekend burglar

He's accused of stealing thousands of dollars in money and jewelry in a burglary spree, and Monday sheriff's deputies arrested their suspect thanks to some quick teamwork.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says 28-year-old Christopher Baker broke into homes across the county.

The first call came in to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office Thursday afternoon - someone broke into a home and stole cash and jewelry. By Saturday, they had received two similar calls.

"It was kinda shocking to kinda hear of this incident," said Jay Jacobs. He's president of the Duckers' Point Homeowners Association, one of the three neighborhoods authorities say a burglar broke into.

"Never had any issues other than just a few little random vandalisms over the few years."

The Sheriff's Office posted information on the Ducker's Pointe burglary on social media. Tips there, and a witness description, led them to a man and a getaway car.

"Some of the other people that were around at the time got great descriptions of the vehicle of the suspect, and everything matched up perfectly when we were able to find the car and actually pull a traffic stop, and find out who he was," explained Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton, "right now we've got three [homes] that we know that he's broken into. We're looking at a couple more"

Christopher Baker is currently charged with three counts of burglary and receiving stolen property.
