Police have arrested a man believed to be responsible for a recent rash of vehicle break-ins in the North Hills, officials said.

Timothy Driscoll, 24, of Bellevue was detained by police after they identified him as a suspect who stole from cars in the vicinity of Lily Avenue in Ross Township, Ross police Chief Joseph Ley said Tuesday.

Police say they found Driscoll in possession of stolen items and that he admitted to taking them from vehicles along Lily Avenue as well as near Amherst, Princeton, Chalfonte and Georgetown avenues.

Driscoll told investigators that he searched through at least 10 vehicles on nearby streets, police said.

Details about the stolen items and their values were not available.

Officials urged anyone who believes they were a victim of theft to call Ross police at 412-931-9070.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
