A Le Roy man has been arrested on charges related to a string of burglaries and attempted burglaries that have occurred in WayneCounty.
Officials say 25-year-old Matthew Hurd is accused of recently breaking into homes in Williamson and Lyons, and he is a suspect in other break-ins.
Police were able to tie the crimes to Hurd after he was found driving a vehicle that matched the description of one that was spotted in the area of the burglaries. Hurd is charged with several counts of burglary and attempted burglary, along with possession of burglary tools and drug offenses.
In an incident this summer, Hurd was charged with five counts of petit larceny and five counts of criminal trespass when he allegedly attempted to steal scrap metal from a business on East Main Street, LeRoy.
