SARASOTA -- The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office arrested a Venice man Tuesday for burglarizing several vehicles late at night.
From June 17-25, two victims reported items were stolen from vehicles parked at their homes on Flamingo Road and Hourglass Drive. A third victim reported someone tried to break into his truck on Argyle Road but a witness scared him away.
The sheriff's office latent print examiner determined fingerprints recovered from each crime scene match Michael Morris, 32, 290 Palmetto Drive. He was also seen on video using one of the victim's credit cards at Walmart.
Morris is charged with two counts of burglary, one count of attempted burglary, one count of fraudulent use of a credit card and three counts of criminal use of personal identification.

This is the 25th arrest for Morris, who was released from prison in January following a two-year sentence for motor vehicle theft. He also has prior arrests for carrying a concealed weapon, domestic battery and dealing in stolen property.
