More Deputies were summoned to the area to assist with the search for the suspect. A short time later an alert Sheriff’s Deputy stopped a vehicle driving out of the area of the incidents. The deputy noticed the passenger in the vehicle matched the suspect’s description. While the individual was detained one of the victims came to the scene and identified the suspect as the car prowler. Deputies also found items on the suspect tying him to the crimes.
Chief Deputy Dean Byrd tells KBKW, James is currently in custody and awaiting his first court appearance, expected to occur sometime today.
