Upon their arrival, officers observed the suspect fleeing into the woods on foot, but were unable to locate after searching the area. Later this morning, police responded back to the area for a suspicious male. Officers identified the individual as Carlos Jewell Anthony Baker, age 26, of Petersburg. Based off evidence recovered earlier, and a statement provided, Baker was arrested in connection with the burglary.
