PINELLAS PARK — Police have arrested a man with a lengthy criminal record in connection with a string of vehicle burglaries early Sunday.

Brian Keith Harrington Jr., 19, of 7910 57th St. N, is being held in the Pinellas County jail on four counts of vehicle burglary as well as violation of probation.

According to Pinellas Park police, Harrington was arrested after officers responded to a tip that a man was breaking into vehicles in the area of 5800 block of 86th Ave. When officers arrived about 3 a.m., the man ran. A police dog was used to track him down at a residence in the 8800 block of 58th Way N, where he was hiding in a pickup truck.

Police say Harrington has an extensive juvenile record, and as an adult has been arrested numerous times. He had been on probation for a month as of his latest arrest.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
