SPOKANE, Wash. - A man with a long, local criminal history is behind bars again after Spokane Police arrested him on Tuesday morning.

Spokane Police Department Director of Communication told KHQ officers were responding to a report of a man walking through backyards and trying to open car doors in the Finch Arboretum area. Cotton said police were on scene within two minutes, however witnesses had lost sight of the man. 

Officers stayed on scene, and Cotton said it was the excellent description of the suspect that gave them a break in the case. Once they left the scene on Trinity Circle, a person called and reported the same activity a few blocks away on F Street. Officers found the man, attempted to make contact with him, but he ran off. He was eventually taken into custody and has been identified as 42-year-old Lelbert L. Williams. 

Police say through follow-up investigation, they can connect Williams with several other recent burglaries, burglary attempts and taking a car without permission. Williams is a 12-time convicted felon with previous convictions consisting of Theft, Forgery, Robbery, Assault, and Unlawful Imprisonment. 

Police say the great descriptions of Williams they were able to get from witnesses really helped them in their investigation and urged if you see suspicious activity or a crime in progress, please call 911 immediately.
