Serial Car Burglary Suspect Nabbed

FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOX) – Police say they may have put an end to a string of car burglaries in Fairview Heights.

Officers arrested 43-year-old Charles Joshway Jr. of East St. Louis on Tuesday morning, shortly after a resident of Veach Drive reported his car stolen.

Joshway is jailed on two felony counts of burglary.

Police say evidence recovered at the scene could link him to as many as five other break-ins from the same neighborhood.

Additional charges could follow.
