Zanesville Police nab a suspect in a break-in and look for one still on the loose.

Lt. Bill Shaw said that around 1:40 Friday morning officers were called to a two story home in the 300 block of Woodlawn Avenue.

The upstairs resident was hearing supposed to be vacant. Officers were able to arrest a 22-year-old man that had broken into the downstairs and was cutting up and stealing copper plumbing.

He’s now being held in the city jail on burglary and possession of criminal tools charges and will be identified when he’s formally charged.

A second man fled the scene as the investigation continues.
