Police arrest suspect in Bozeman vehicle burglaries
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Bozeman Police say a tip led them to the suspect in a rash of recent vehicle burglaries.

According to court documents, police got a call from a tipster who alerted them that the stolen blue Dodge Durango was leaving a trailer court off Huffine Lane. Police stopped the SUV and arrested 23-year-old Christopher Harley Morgan.

According to court documents, Morgan admitted to 24 of 28 of the recent break-ins.

We spoke to someone at the trailer court who said he never would have thought the suspect would be found in that area.

Klint Ferris says, "I've never had any issues. It's the first I've heard of it. I'm just not afraid of stuff like that. The police are nearby, I'll call them up."

NBC Montana called police Friday; they tell us they are sorting through items they believe could be stolen. Police ask anyone who thinks they had items stolen to contact them at 582-2010.
