INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis police have arrested a man in connection with a string of burglaries that prompted police to put a southeast-side neighborhood on alert.
Sherman Thompson, 20, of Indianapolis, was arrested Tuesday afternoon on preliminary charges of burglary and theft.
Thompson is suspected of being involved in multiple burglaries in the Willow Oaks neighborhood, which is near Franklin Road and Raymond Street.
Thompson is facing four counts of burglary and three counts of theft, but he has not been formally charged.
IMPD sent a crime alert to residents in the neighborhood earlier this month after 10 burglaries were reported in three weeks' time.
Police said Thompson was also wanted on unrelated burglary and theft charges, and he might face additional criminal charges related to a handgun in his possession at the time of his arrest.
Thompson's mug shot has not yet been released.
