CLEVELAND COUNTY, Oklahoma -

An accused serial burglar is behind bars Tuesday as Cleveland County detectives discover $80,000 in stolen stuff.

James Newsom was taken into custody on several charges, including second degree burglary, larceny of automobile, and uttering forged instrument.

According to the Cleveland County Sheriff's office, on December 31, 2013, a woman reported that her grandfather's home in Cleveland County was burglarized, and several items were stolen, including a 60s model International Harvester crew cab truck, a red 1948 tractor, and a blue Suzuki moped.

While investigating another case, deputies learned that the suspect, Newsom, scrapped an International crew cab truck at Alpha Recycling.

The woman identified the truck sold to Alpha Recycling as the one that belonged to her grandfather.

On January 8, 2014, authorities responded to the recovery of multiple stolen items at a property in Noble.

After speaking with the property owners, deputies learned that Newsom had transported the items to the property and stored them there, including a 1948 International tractor and a blue Suzuki moped, both matching the descriptions of the stolen items.

Newsom arrived at the property a short time later, and was taken into custody. He is believed to be connected with burglaries in Cleveland, Lincoln and Pottawatomie Counties.
