A surveillance photo WLOX.com first showed you on Monday helped Long Beach Police find a wanted man. Trevor Dylan Lykins, 18, of Saucier, is charged with Auto Burglary.

The crime happened Monday, April 25, in the 200 block of LaRosa Street. A checkbook, a handgun, and a wallet containing a MS Gaming Commission badge and credentials were all stolen from the vehicle.

Investigators said a young man later tried to use one of the stolen credit cards at the Walmart on Highway 49 in Gulfport. They now believe that person was Lykins. When officers arrested him, they said they also found a .45 cal handgun, a checkbook and other items stolen in the burglary.
