LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - One suspect is behind bars and two others are at large Wednesday morning in Louisville.

Police say they arrested Ussan Chamizo in connection to as many as 40 jewelery heists across three states.

Authorities say the thieves broke into the Genesis jewelery store in Louisville through the roof, stealing about $100,000 in jewelery and watches.
