BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Authorities in Jefferson County believe they have solved a rash of house burglaries with the arrest of a 17-year-old male from Dolomite.
According to Sheriff's Lt. Randy Christian, the suspect had a strange calling card, he would often use the bathroom in the victims' house.
Tenaureous Thomas was arrested late Friday night at a residence in Fairfield.
Christian said the teen is a suspect in dozens of residential break-ins in McCalla, Pleasant Grove, Fairfield and Trussville areas. Thomas was also charged with attempted murder for shooting at a homeowner in Pleasant Grove last week.
He remains in the Jefferson County Jail under a $230,000 bond.
