NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A convicted burglar has admitted to 11 recent residential break-ins in west Nashville, said police.

Matthew Vitalis, 26, admitted to break-ins beginning in early March on Pennywell Drive, Russleo Drive, Davidson Drive, Cross Creek Road, Park Lane, Castleman Drive, Lindawood Drive, Wallace Lane and three on Trimble Road.

Vitalis, who had been staying at the Comfort Inn on White Bridge Place, became a person of interest after officers recovered a backpack that Vitalis left behind at a home March 29 on Davidson Drive.

Vitalis was arrested last week on two outstanding probation violations.

Police said while he was in jail, officers received confirmation that a fingerprint lifted from the April 5 Pennywell Drive break-in belonged to Vitalis.

Vitalis later admitted to the 11 burglaries saying he broke into the homes, primarily through windows, to support a drug habit.

Vitalis, who remains jailed, was charged Thursday with the Pennywell Drive burglary. Warrants charging Vitalis with the remaining 10 break-ins were issued against him Monday morning.
