Police Stop Early Morning Theft

Posted by wlpo on April 29, 2011

Deputies say they caught a Marseilles man in the act of stealing from an elderly woman.

Police were called out to the Marseilles property of an 83-year old woman Thursday morning because of a suspicious truck.  Deputies say the truck was loaded with scrap metal and other things belonging to the woman.  They eventually tracked down Roman Cummings on the property and arrested him for criminal trespass and theft.

He was taken to the county jail and his truck was seized by deputies.  Cummings was arrested in 2008 for residential burglary.
