When justice fails to protect
The Mansfield News Journal is reporting that officers arrested a 38-year-old man who was under house arrest on burglary charges Tuesday night.
From the story:
- Gregory Sutton of 168 Western Ave. had been out on bond pending aggravated burglary charges.
Mansfield Police Department Patrolman Dave Scheurer said Sutton still had an electronic monitoring bracelet around his ankle at the time of arrest.
A 40-year-old man said he watched Sutton walk away from his detached garage in the 100 block of Rae Avenue. The man reported Sutton had a crowbar and his garage door was pried open. He also said Sutton ran when confronted.
Scheurer said officers apprehended Sutton after a short chase, and found a significant amount of jewelry. He said several gold and silver rings, bracelets, necklaces and three boxes of earrings were found on Sutton. All of the items were turned over to the Crime Lab. Officers charged Sutton with burglary, a fifth-degree felony.
According to the newspaper, Sutton was arrested in February on aggravated burglary charges after allegedly committing three burglaries.
