(Etowah County) A rainbow City man has been arrested on Theft related Charges, according to Sheriff Jonathon Horton.

A male subject was caught on a security camera at a new build construction site breaking into the residence and stealing tools. Information from that video allowed investigators to use the Flock Camera system that the Sheriff's Office has in places throughout the county.

A vehicle matching the description from security video was captured on a flock camera entering Whorton Bend community 10 minutes before the burglary occurred. The vehicle was identified as belonging to August Edward Scolaro. Investigators obtained and executed a search warrant at a storage building and a residence in Attalla that Scolaro was working. August Edward Scolaro was taken into custody and taken to the Etowah County Detention Center. All items that had been taken have been recovered and returned to the owner.

August Edward Scolaro was booked into the Etowah County Detention Center on $4000 in Bonds.
