MOUNT PLEASANT, TX (KLTV) -

On Friday, the Mount Pleasant Police Department announced that a fifth burglary charge has been filed against a serial commercial burglary suspect.
According to a post on the Mount Pleasant Police Department Facebook post, the burglary occurred several months ago at one of the town’s restaurants.

Jaceon Martin is still being held in the Titus County Jail. Martin, 23, of Mount Pleasant, has been charged with five felony burglary of a building charges and two misdemeanor charges - possession of drug paraphernalia and walking on the wrong side of the road. Collectively, his bond amount has been set at $65,000.

The Mount Pleasant Police Department said that they arrested Martin for a series of commercial burglaries that occurred in January.

The suspect was featured in a prior press release from police that asked for the public’s help in identifying the man responsible for the crime. During the burglaries, the suspect was seen on video inside a business wearing a “Batman” logo hoodie. 

Police said that a crime analyst assisting with the cases provided detectives and patrol officers a predictive analysis to help officers locate the suspect. Chief Wayne Isbell noted that this is not a new program; there are several that are in used by the department.

Predictive Crime Analytics, police say, looks at multiple overlapping data sets to determine correlations between crime and factors such as weather patterns, housing, transit conditions, reported crimes, scene and evidence patterns, traffic and pedestrian contacts and other factors. They say that while not all of these factors might be considered relevant, the capacity of the analytic review offers intelligence and predictability of possible suspects and an area where a future crime may occur.

Isbell said that an analytic review does not always pay off, but in this situation, it did. The MPPD analyst was spot-on, which helped get the suspect, Isbell said.
Martin was located Monday night around 11:30 while officers were monitoring the target area. A patrol officer spotted a suspicious person and contacted Martin, a press release stated. After his detention and arrest for unrelated offenses, detectives were called in. Evidence discovered led to a search warrant being executed at 326 Martin Luther King at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.
