LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)-Lexington Patrol Officers arrested 55-year-old Clarence Wallace Saturday at Dan's Discount Jewelry and Pawn on East New Circle Road thanks to several outstanding warrants.

Police had released his name and information just seven days before to WKYT, in hopes someone would give them the tip that would lead to the suspected-burglar's arrest.

Detectives tell WKYT that they have sucessfully connected Wallace to three break-ins in Lexington and will compare these cases to countless others.

The three cases Wallace has been connected to are on Cresent Avenue, Wyatt Parkway and Gerald Drive.

Wallace is in the Fayette County Detention Center, charged with burglary and drug charges.
