LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - After several break-in's Lorain police have arrested the two men who they believe are responsible.

On May 13, 2016 residents living in the neighborhood of W. 29th Street and Lexington Avenue reported a burglary to a residence in the 2900 block of Lexington Avenue.

One homeowner was able to capture pictures of the suspects on his cellphone and gave them to police.

About an hour later, Officer Ventrua spotted the suspects near W. 23rd Street. One of the suspects, Marlon Smith was arrested without incident. The other suspect, identified as Kevin Coleman ran from the area while Smith was being arrested. In addition to the burglary they had just committed, both suspects had active warrants from a burglary they're accused of committing on April 28.

Four days later, the US Marshal's Northern Ohio Fugitive Task Force tried to arrest Coleman at 1007 West 21st Street. He fled, but was arrested a few days later in Cincinnati and extradited back to Lorain.

In addition to these two burglary charges, Smith and Coleman are both facing additional burglary charges as well weapons charges stemming from multiple residential break ins.

Residents are encouraged to call the Lorain Police Department at 440-204-2100 if they see anything suspicious in and around their neighborhoods.
