PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police have arrested a man suspected in a series of “cat burglaries” in southwest Portland.

Officers spotted 26-year-old Charles Earl Howell walking down a street Thursday night and arrested him on an outstanding robbery warrant.

Investigators had identified him as a suspect in break-ins at more than two dozen homes since April in the West Hills neighborhood.
