Summit County sheriff’s deputies, aided by digital imagery from the victim’s home security cameras, quickly arrested four suspects in a series of early Thursday morning burglaries.

Sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Ron Bridge said that just before 2 a.m. Thursday, a Jeremy Ranch resident awoke to sounds of people in his driveway, where he saw two men clad in black stealing items from his vehicle.

The resident called 911 and deputies responded, setting up a containment area around the scene. Meantime, a deputy went to interview the homeowner, learning of the home’s video security system.

"The victim was able to provide a description of the suspect vehicle off of the video surveillance, which was then relayed to deputies in the area," Bridge said. "A deputy on containment located a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle [and] a traffic stop was conducted."

In all, four men were found inside the vehicle, two of them dressed completely in black. All four were taken into custody.

"In plain sight inside the vehicle were the victim’s belongings, including [a] backpack, which one of the suspects was wearing. Additionally, there were other items located inside the vehicle that appeared to have be stolen from [at least three] other residences [in the area]," Bridge said.

The four suspects — ages 24, 26, 31 and 32 — were booked into the Summit County Jail on suspicion of vehicle burglary and theft.
