On October 25, 2005 at approximately 12:05 a.m. the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office received a 9-1-1 call concerning a possible burglary in progress in the 10700 block of West Berry Drive. As sheriff's deputies were responding, another call came in from a resident next door. A third resident heard glass breaking and looked in the front room of his home to see the suspect in the doorway.
In all, five victims have been identified to this point. One of the homeowners heard her front door being hit hard enough to break the leaded glass. The suspect fled when that homeowner yelled she was going to get a gun. A short time later another homeowner called saying he was holding an intruder at gunpoint. The intruder was attempting to steal a plasma television in the living room. The intruder dropped the TV and ran. He jumped a backyard fence into a greenbelt area. Deputies surrounded the area and began a search with a K9 team. The suspect was found hiding in a nearby culvert and taken into custody without incident.

Sullivan is being held at the Jefferson County Detentions Facility on the following charges:
- 2 counts of Second Degree Burglary
