Surveillance video leads to arrest


TIFFIN -- The tape doesn't lie.

Tiffin police Wednesday arrested Billy Sandlin, 27, of Tiffin and charged him with breaking and entering after a surveillance video at a local store caught a man removing Nintendo and Sony game systems and video game cartridges from Sharon's Collectables on North Washington Street. The shop was broken into about 5 a.m. Tuesday, and the surveillance video led investigators to Mr. Sandlin.

Police said that when they went to question the suspect, he was still wearing the clothing seen on the video. He admitted to the break-in and allowed detectives to recover the stolen items from his home, police said. Mr. Sandlin is being held in the Seneca County jail.
