Police make arrest in Winco parking lot break-ins
Idaho Falls police have arrested a man they said stole a purse from a car in the Winco parking lot.
Jerry Alan Rowe, 57, of Idaho Falls, was arrested Friday on a charge of grand theft.
Rowe was arrested on a warrant. Police made the announcement Monday.
Rowe was identified as the man responsible for breaking a window on a 2001 Toyota Camry and stealing a purse containing checks on June 7 during the day.
Earlier this month, police released photos of a man they said was breaking into vehicles at the Winco lot, and made the connection to Rowe based on a tip from a viewer.
