The Gallia County Sheriff's Office arrests a burglary suspect, and they say it happened thanks to viewers like you.

The sheriff's office says 31-year-old Larry Eddie of Chesapeake admitted to stealing from a home on State Route 218 after enough word of the burglary got around through local media.

Sheriff Joe Browning says Eddie was caught on camera by the home's video surveillance system.

And that video wound up on the news.

Police then received a number of tips, leading them to Eddie.

"He commented to our investigators that as soon as he realized the house had cameras he knew they were in trouble," says Sheriff Browning. "And later that night they saw themselves on the 11'oclock news."

A second suspect is still at-large, but Sheriff Browning says that person has been identified.

Eddie is charged with one count of burglary and one count of tampering with evidence.

Home surveillance helps lead police to four men that authorities say could be connected to a home robbery.

The Gallia County Sheriff's Office says it happened Tuesday morning on Route 218 in Crown City.

Investigators say the surveillance video shows two men breaking into the home and leaving with laptops and a flat screen TV.

But they say something spooked the suspects, because they left the labtops in the driveway and TV on the porch.

But not before getting clear images of the men.

Deputies say now this could be even bigger, as investigators are now looking into this break-in being connected with other burglaries across the state.
