APRIL 30, 2004 - Posted at 10:28 a.m. CDT

 

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO - Police in Missouri have arrested a man believed to be responsible for a rash of burlgaries in three states.  The burglaries occured in the Missouri Bootheel, northwest Tennessee and northern Arkansas over the past three years.

The break came Saturday when a rural Hayti, Missouri, resident found an older man sitting in a car in his driveway.  The homeowner got the license number and described the car to police.  He later discovered the home had been burglarized.  Several weapons were among the items taken.

The suspicious man in the car turned himself in.  A second suspect remains at large.

Police say the suspect confessed to several burglaries, mainly stealing guns and jewelry.  He told investigators he committed most of the crimes by himself, though he sometimes had help from the accomplice.

Several weapons have been recovered.
