Mentor Man Faces Theft, Attempted Burglary Charges After Neighbors Recognize Him

Neighbors recognized Joshua Jaworski trying to break into a home on Faye Lane, Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said

A Mentor man faces attempted burglary and theft charges after neighbors recognized him trying to break into a home Friday morning on Faye Lane, Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said.

The burglar -- who is thought to be 21-year-old Joshua Jaworski -- tried to pry open a rear window of the house. However, he was unsuccessful and ultimately gave up without getting inside.

Some neighbors called police about the burglary. They recognized Jaworski because he used to live in the neighborhood, Allen said.

Police arrested Jaworski later that day. When they did, they found a stolen credit card and stolen gift card on him, Allen said.

Jaworski is also a suspect in several thefts that happened in the Chestnut Commons area. He is accused of stealing a GPS unit, prescription drugs, foreign coins, a dietary supplement powder and keys from cars in the neighborhood, Allen said.

Jaworski was charged with attempted burglary, a felony count of theft and another misdemeanor count of theft, as well as a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was arraigned Tuesday morning in Mentor Municipal Court. Judge John Trebets set his bond at $100,000, which was not posted.

Jaworski is a suspect in other theft cases and may face additional charges, Allen said.

^Gabe are you just as blind as josh was? Obviously this isn't somebody we should praise... Regardless of him being your dude im sure if he was in a different state of mind you could have been the person he was trying to rob! Its a shame to think anybody could have any respect for somebody who could do such a thing.. A real friend wouldn't go out of there way to tell somebody that the serious crime they did was "Not a big deal".. I HAVE NO REMORSE!
