LEBANON, OR (KPTV) -

A man was arrested in connection to a burglary spree that included at least nine homes, according to the Linn County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said Jerry Goodwin, 38, of Lebanon, is responsible for numerous burglaries in the Lacomb area northeast of Lebanon from Sept. 1 through Oct. 3.

Investigators said they had obtained surveillance video of Goodwin using a stolen credit card at a Lebanon business. After identifying him, they learned he was driving a dark-colored SUV.

On Saturday, two burglary reports were taken by the sheriff's office and witnesses reported seeing a dark-colored Mitsubishi SUV parked in the area.

At 4:35 p.m. Saturday, deputies conducted a traffic stop on a dark blue 1997 Mitsubishi Montero SUV driven by Goodwin.

Deputies said he confessed to multiple burglaries during questioning.

The sheriff's office said he cooperated with the investigation and took deputies to several locations, including homes and storage units to recover stolen property.

The stolen items include guns, electronics, credit cards and various household items. The value of the items is believed to be more than $5,000.  

Goodwin was booked in the Linn County Jail on charges of burglary, theft, fraudulent use of a cred card, ID theft and unauthorized entry to a motor vehicle.

Deputies said Goodwin is also a person of interest in several other Albany and Lebanon area burglaries.

Anyone with information about any of the burglaries involving Goodwin or has seen Goodwin's vehicle parked in suspicious areas is asked to call Linn County Detective Andy Franklin at 541-967-3950.
