(WPXI)  Surveillance cameras helped a Pennsylvania carwash owner and police bust a suspected serial burglar.

"I was up watching the cameras at home.  I saw the same suspect on the camera system.  I yelled for my husband to wake up," said Christine Nagel, the carwash owner's wife.

Nagel said she couldn't sleep because of a similar incident the night before.

Police said officers and K-9 officers quickly arrived and chased suspect Timothy Kovocovsky through a creek.   

Police said they found Kovocovsky in a car a street over from the business.  They said he admitted to the recent incidents.
