LOUISVILLE, Colo. — Louisville police say the suspect accused of multiple burglaries in Jefferson County is the same person who allegedly burglarized four businesses in Louisville in November.

The suspect, who was identified by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office as Titus Emilyon, 38, was arrested by deputies on Dec. 2.

Deputies believed that Emilyon had been involved in a burglary spree in Kittredge, which lasted between 11:17 p.m. and 11:27 p.m. that evening. Three businesses between Hill Top Drive and the 25900 block of Highway 74 were burglarized and the suspect had smashed through glass doors and grabbed cash registers, according to the sheriff's office. Deputies found Emilyon along Highway 74 — he had broken glass on him, a discarded cash register near the car and other evidence, the sheriff's office said — and he was taken into custody.
