Deonta Lebron Ford, 19, has been charged with stealing items from a house on Garfield Street.
Ford, of 41 Scruggs St., is charged with aggravated burglary and theft over $500.
Police said Jeffery Watkins told them there were witnesses who described a black male known to them as "Deonte" on the curb near his residence at the time of the burglary on Oct. 2. "Deonte" was seen getting into a tan vehicle.
A relative said she saw a heavy-set black male go up to the front door and knock.
Detective James Belko said he found that Ford sold a gold Bulova watch to Household Pawn on E. 23rd Street. Mr. Watkins was shown photographs of the watch "and immediately picked out the watch sold by Ford."
