Ross and Pickaway County authorities captured a man wanted in a violent home invasion Wednesday night.

Detectives arrested Thomas E. Lewis, 46, at the Budget Host Inn on U.S. 23 in Circleville. Detectives said he had been staying in a room at the motel.

Lewis was wanted for a home invasion in Ross County Wednesday morning. 

A female victim in her mid-80's says a man broke into her Trego Creek Road residence, south of Chillicothe.

Deputies say Lewis bounded the woman while the suspect ransacked the residence and stole items and cash. 

Deputies considered Lewis dangerous and possibly armed because of his criminal history, which includes jail time for burglary, robbery and impersonating a police officer.

Deputies conducted surveillance on the motel where lewis was found. They arrested him without incident.

Lewis will be brought to the Pickaway County Jail then transferred to the Ross County Jail to face charges related to the home invasion.
