PRINEVILLE, OR -- Prineville Police say they've caught a prolific car prowler, possibly responsible for a string of break-ins. Officers received seven reports of car break-ins, September 14, with more coming from outlying areas.

 

Evidence linked 53-year-old Martin Hollowell to the crimes, as well as to similar activity reported in Deschutes and Jefferson counties. The Bend man was arrested on an unrelated charge and car break-ins around Prineville dropped off.

 

After Hollowell was released on October 31, at least half a dozen more cars were broken into over the next two days. Again, evidence led investigators back to Hollowell. 
 
He was arrested during a Monday traffic stop, and his car seized. Police executed a search warrant on the vehicle, Wednesday and discovered evidence connecting him to crimes in Prineville and Redmond. Hollowell faces dozens of charges in Crook County, including 13 counts of Unlawful Entry Into a Motor Vehicle and Meth Possession. 
 
Anyone with additional information in these cases could contact Prineville PD at 541-447-4168.
