Nevada County Sheriff’s deputies teamed up with Nevada City Police early Sunday (Dec. 28) morning to capture an Arizona man suspected of breaking into a residence near Banner Lava Cap and Gold Run roads.
A Nevada Couny Jail booking report says 24-year old Willam N. Odom, who identified himself as a 24-year old dishwasher from Marand, Ariz., was arrested around 3:30 a.m. after being discovered hiding in a wooded area near the scene of the crime.
The report says neighbors had called the police after they reported hearing a window breaking in the 11-thousand block of Pittsburgh Mine Road, just outside of Nevada City.
A squad of deputies along with two Nevada City officers surrounded the site, then searched the nearby area where Odom was subsequently captured.
Deputies reported finding a screen sliced open, and some items from the residence neatly piled up outside.
Odom remains jailed at Nevada County, unable to make $25,000 bail, and reportedly is being investigated for several other holiday burglaries committed near where he was captured.
Two of the previous burglaries were residential, while a third involved a local business.
