SUMTER, SC (WIS) -

Sumter police arrested a man Saturday wanted in connection to several car break-ins.

Samuel Michael Lane, 28, was arrested at a residence after officers received an anonymous tip, Sumter Police Department Deputy Chief Alvin Holston said.

Lane is charged with one count of breaking and entering into an automobile and is being held in the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center, Holston said.

Holston said Lane is believed to have recently entered a vehicle on Moise Drive where a Browning 270 rifle with a scope was reported stolen. 

Detectives say Lane is also a suspect in several other area vehicle break-ins where items reported stolen include wallets, guns and various electronics. 

All the vehicles that were reportedly entered were left unlocked. Some of the items reported stolen were recovered Saturday, Holston said.

Lane also is wanted by the Sumter County Sheriff's Office for failure to register as a sex offender, Holston said.

Anyone with information about the vehicle break-ins is asked to call the Sumter Police Department (803) 436-2700 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.

Automobile break-ins are targets of opportunity. 

Sumter police said to reduce the chance of your vehicle being burglarized, lock the doors and remove any valuables.
