A 19-year-old is facing multiple felony charges after police say he and another suspect have been involved in several burglaries on the north side of Sioux City.

Jeremy Mahaney, of Sioux City, was booked into the Woodbury County Jail Thursday and has been charged with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of second-degree burglary, a count of third-degree theft and operating a vehicle without the owner's consent. 

Police said Mahaney was taken into custody after officers were dispatched to a burglary at 5 a.m. Thursday at 4534 Perry Way. Police learned two suspects entered the home and removed several items.

The vehicle used in the burglary was located a short distance away with the stolen items nearby, police said.

Mahaney was identified and brought in for questioning at 8 a.m. That is when police linked him and another suspect to several burglaries in the Leeds area.
