A Warren man suspected of multiple burglaries in Lordstown was arrested Wednesday afternoon by the Lordstown police chief.

Stanley Helman, 36, is charged with burglary and having weapons under disability after an incident on Palmyra Road. Residents had provided police with a description of a suspicious vehicle and on Wednesday afternoon, the village mayor saw a vehicle matching the description near his house on Palmyra Road.

The mayor called Lordstown Police Chief Brent Milhoan, but the vehicle was gone by the time the chief arrived. Milhoan drove a little further up Palmyra Road and spotted the vehicle in a driveway.

As he was turning around to go back, Milhoan witnessed the suspect carrying a flat-screen TV out of the home.  He pulled up behind the car and made an arrest.

The chief also found Helman had jewelry, money and guns by the door to take out to his car. The weapons under disability charge stems from the stolen guns, police said.

Milhoan said there have been six burglaries in the village this month, compared to the usual one per month. He said police are trying to tie Helman to the other burglaries as well.
