About 1:30 Friday afternoon, police located the suspect in a Monday night burglary at My Sister's Closet, reporting he had jewelry on him stolen from the nonprofit store.

Michael W. Johnson, 58, described by police as transient, was found in the 2400 block of South Henderson Street and arrested on three felonies: burglary, fraud on a financial institution and theft.

When searched "officers located jewelry on his person that was later identified by employees of My Sister's Closet as having been stolen during the burglary," Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said in a news update.

Police allege he broke into My Sister's Closet overnight on Oct. 2 and stole jewelry, designer handbags and other items from the shop.

My Sister's Closet, a nonprofit located at 414 S. College Ave., sells donated used clothing and accessories to support its mission to provide outfits and help for low-income women seeking employment.

According to a Bloomington Police Department report, an intruder wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and coat broke a window and entered the store around 10:30 p.m., staying inside several hours.

Besides taking merchandise, the thief smashed display cases and left with a tip jar containing cash. The break-in was discovered about 10 a.m. Tuesday.
