CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Geauga County Sheriff’s Office said the male suspect who was wanted for attempting to break “into a couple of” Thompson Township-area homes and buildings on Tuesday morning has been caught.

The suspect was isolated to an area near the intersection of Rock Creek Road and Madison road, according to the sheriff’s office. He was eventually located and taken into custody.

It’s believed that the suspect came into the area and ran from a car during a pursuit out of Ashtabula County on Monday night, the sheriff said.
