PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A man wanted in connection to a number of “smash-and-grab” thefts at Allegheny County parks has been arrested.
Officer found 38-year-old Andre Jennings after receiving a tip and arrested him without incident Thursday.
Police said in recent months, there have been a number of thefts from vehicles parked at North Park and other county parks in recent months.
