SCIOTO COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A man has been arrested after deputies say he broke into a hardware store multiple times.

James Davis of Portsmouth was arrested just outside the Ace Hardware store in Wheelersburg late Tuesday night.

The Scioto County Sheriff's Office says they were called to a break-in at the store a little after 10:30. When they got there, they could see a man inside looking out the window.

Deputies say Davis tried to escape through another door but they ran him down.

They found money believed to have been taken from the store in a mattress next to a dumpster beside the store. Deputies say they now believe Davis had broken into the Ace Hardware store several days earlier.

Davis is in the Scioto County Jail, charged with Breaking and Entering.
