Richland Police Officers arrested a 17 year old male after tying him to 6 commercial burglaries and two malicious mischief incidents. Two accomplices were arrested on one of the burglaries.
Officers have been investigating a string of commercial burglaries since the end of September which have been mostly focused in the central business district. Officers were able to collect physical evidence from the burglaries and matched evidence found on/with the suspect when he was arrested.
During the subsequent interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crimes which were corroborated by the investigations.
