A Somerset man admitted he broke into an estimated 200 cars in Pulaski County, according to a news release from the county sheriff's office.

Officers interviewed Carion Paris Costelli, 38, after police arrested him in Tennessee for allegedly breaking into vehicles there, according to the news release issued Monday.

Another man charged in thefts in Tennessee, 20-year-old Ryan D. Ellis of Nancy, gave police information about Costelli breaking into cars along Interstate 40 in Tennessee and Interstate 75 in Kentucky and Tennessee, police said.

In many of the cases in Pulaski County, thieves broke out car windows and stole purses, wallets and cash.

Costelli and Ellis are in custody in Tennessee. Detectives from the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office will obtain warrants charging them in Kentucky, according to the news release.
