KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

A man is in jail after he allegedly caused several car crashes and then broke in to multiple homes in Kenton County.

An officer and K9 unit were called to a house in Edgewood Tuesday for a report of a burglary.

When police arrived, the suspect called 911 from the house and said that he was the suspected burglar.

Police told the man, identified as Robert Coale, to surrender peacefully or they were going to send in the K9 unit. Coale then surrendered peacefully.

According to the Kenton Count Sheriff's Office, the investigation revealed that Coale had broken into two houses and attempted to break into three others. Before the burglaries, he was also allegedly involved in several car crashes with injuries in the Erlanger area.

Officials say Coale was driving a stolen car from Florence when he was involved in those crashes. After wrecking, he fled on foot.

Coale was arrested and taken to the Kenton County Detention Center. He was charged with burglary, assault, driving under the influence and wanton endangerment.
