JACKSON, Tenn — Mark Allen Klawitter has been charged with burglary from a motor vehicle after Jackson Police arrested him for allegedly breaking into a vehicle and stealing a Freon gas tank.

Authorities valued the stolen property at $330 and the damage caused to the door of the vehicle at $400. Documents show restitution is being sought. Klawitter’s bond was set at $5,000.
