A 22-year-old man was arrested Monday in connection with a car burglary spree in Port St. Lucie.

Police said Sonny Lee Meade of Port St. Lucie is accused of seven counts of burglary to an unoccupied vehicle.

Police said five burglaries occurred in the 1100 block of SE Palm Beach Road on June 14, and two others in the Anchorage Cove apartment complex.


Police said they lifted a fingerprint on the driver's side door of one of the burglarized cars which matched Meade's fingerprint.

On Monday at 2:30 a.m., police said they set up a perimeter around a house in the 1600 block of SE Fallon Dr. where Meade was suspected to be staying. 

Police said when officers arrived, Meade tried to escape through the back, where an officer and his K9 "Zoran" were waiting. 

Meade was arrested and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
