Man charged in Ashland car break-ins
ASHLAND — A 24-year-old man was arrested on theft and burglary charges for allegedly breaking into several cars in the area of Meadow Drive in northeast Ashland.
A resident of the neighborhood spotted Adam A. Garrison, who lives in the 300 block of Clay Street in Ashland, breaking out car windows late Friday, police Detective Bon Stewart said.
The residents pointed out Garrison to the officers, who arrested him on nine counts of second-degree criminal mischief, first-degree theft, second-degree theft, two counts of unlawful entry into a motor vehicle, possession of burglary tools and possession of methamphetamine.
After his arrest Garrison confessed to several other car break-ins that happened along Meadow Drive in the previous three months. A search of his apartment yielded thousands of dollar of stolen items, including two handguns.
An additional charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm was then lodged against Garrison.
He was lodged in the Jackson County Jail, where he remained late Saturday on $82,000 bail.
