CHINA SPRING (October 19, 2013) -- An arrest has been made after a string of burglaries at homes and churches in the China Spring area outside of Waco.
Richard "Tanner" Ozment, 25, was arrested by McLennan County Sheriff's deputies Friday night on a warrant charging three counts of burglary.
Ozment was first arrested Thursday on one count of failure to comply as a sex offender, but posted bond Friday afternoon.
McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said a violation led to the other cases being reported.
"We got a tip from another officer that he was in the area." said McNamara.
"We believe that he was photographing, taking some pictures around one of the China Spring schools and so our officers proceeded to the location and arrested him."
Four different churches and several homes were broken into in China Spring over the past three weeks.
Ozment remained jailed Saturday.
McLennan County Sheriffs deputies are still investigating.
