Jennings County deputies believe they solved several burglaries last week with one arrest.

Earlier in the week, a home on State Road 3 was broken into and items were stolen including hunting equipment, tools, a camera and cash. According to the sheriff’s department, a neighbor had a home video surveillance system ¬†and that video led police to another home on State Road 3.

At that home, deputies saw items that matched the ones reported stolen. After questioning 23-year-old Zachary R. Clark of Commiskey, Clark allegedly admitted to breaking into the first house, a nearby barn and another home. Deputies also allegedly found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia during the search.

Clark was arrested on preliminary charges of burglary, theft and possession of methamphetamine.
