An Adel man was arrested on a Dallas County warrant Wednesday after allegedly violating the terms of his pretrial release in connection with a series of burglaries and thefts occurring in May and June.

Jeffery Michael Heater, 37, of 1631 Main St., Adel, was charged with three counts of third-degree burglary, two counts of third-degree theft, possession of burglary tools and operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent.

According to court records, Heater was arrested May 31 in connection with thefts from a farm near Earlham, and he was arrested June 15 in connection with thefts from a farm south of Perry. The cases are pending in Dallas County District Court.
