WEEKI WACHEE, Fla. (AP) - Sheriff's deputies in Hernando County say a string of burglaries may have ended when a suspect was captured while trying to swim to freedom.

Deputies say they caught 21-year-old Chelsea Lane late last week after a homeowner saw her trying to break in and gave chase. Lane jumped into a canal off the Weeki Wachee River and tried to backstroke to the other side. Authorities were waiting on the other side to take her to jail.

The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/RTOyW2 ) reports Lane is accused in a string of six burglaries in Hernando County and is a suspect in several other burglaries in nearby Pasco County on Dec. 20. Lane admitted to a number of burglaries, saying she targeted jewelry.

Lane remains in the Hernando County Jail.
