The arrest of a suspected thief prompted the Greenville Police Department to ask residents in the Tar River-University Neighborhood to check for possible stolen belongings and to remember to lock their vehicle doors.

Officers were called Tuesday night to the 1400 block of Willow Street in reference to a man pulling on door handles, the department reported in a Facebook post. Officers stopped 40-year-old Demale Jones, 1103 Vandyke St.

Jones was in possession of various IDs and a large amount of change, the department reported. When questioned, he admitted to entering approximately 12 vehicles in the area of the dog park and The District apartments.

Jones was arrested and charged, however, officers have yet to identify all the victims. Detectives are asking anyone who lives in the area to check their vehicle to ensure no belongings are missing.
