The Preston County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Mount Clare man who was wanted on warrants from Marion, Monongalia, and Harrison counties.

James Howard Holtzman, 40, is charged with breaking and entering after an incident at the Maple Leaf Motel in Bruceton Mills. Holtzman is accused of entering the unlocked business, stealing currency, checks, and fleeing on foot.

At the time of his arrest, Holtzman was found to be in possession of stolen items from the motel. The sheriff's office said the boots he was wearing were consistent with the prints left by the suspect fleeing the Maple Leaf Motel on Feb. 4.

Holtzman is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
