Murphysboro Police arrested man for attempted burglary

Murphysboro Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for a string of home burglaries.

18-year-old Darion Smith was arrested yesterday on the charge of attempted residential burglary.

Smith’s arrest comes one day after the department posted his picture to social media asking for the public’s help in identifying him. Another suspect was captured on surveillance footage with Smith. No word yet if that person has also been apprehended.
