Person of interest caught, April stats

Looks like it took a week for the long arm of the law to find its perpetrator.
Last Tuesday, Oxford Village Police reported Burdick Street Landscape had been broken into sometime between the hours of 12:30 and 1:15 a.m. A window was broken and several Stihl brand landscaping tools were reported stolen. The department posted security photos of the suspect getaway vehicle, a dark colored Dodge pickup.
Late Monday evening Police Chief Mike Solwold reported, “The vehicle involved in the break-in at Burdick Street Landscape has been recovered as well as a person of interest.”
Solwold said as soon as more information is available, he would pass it on to The Leader.
