Three people, including a man who walked away from a treatment facility, were arrested Tuesday in connection to a string of car break-ins in Summit County.

Katie Jenkins, 27 of Cuyahoga Falls, Logan Wagner, 29 of Doylestown, and Anthony Hall, 25 of Cuyahoga Falls are all facing charges.

According to Bath Township police chief Mike McNeeley, police responded around 6:30 a.m. to a home on Top-O-Hill Drive in Bath Township after a homeowner called to report that someone had broken into their car and stolen property. 

After that, several other residents called police, reporting similar crimes.

A short time later, police were called to Highlands Drive for a report of suspicious people. Police responded and began a foot pursuit with the suspects, which ended with the capture of Jenkins.

During an interview with Jenkins, she told them about a cell phone that Wagner had with him. Police pinged the phone, which led them to an apartment on Munroe Falls Avenue in Cuyahoga Falls. 

Officers waited outside until he left the apartment and then arrested him.

Police then learned that another person was in the apartment—Anthony Hall-- who failed to complete a program through Oriana House and had an active warrant for a probation violation.

Officers obtained a search warrant and went inside to get Hall. While they were in there, they found bags and bags of stolen property, according to McNeeley.

"They found wallets, purses, watches, cell phones, other electronic equipment and drug paraphernalia," McNeeley said.

Police believe the trio was responsible for car break ins in Cuyahoga Falls, Bath Township and Silver Lake. 

Jenkins was charged with receiving stolen property, Wagner was charged with complicity and Hall was charged on a probation violation. More charges are expected against all three.
