Investigators in Hancock County have linked a burglary suspect arrested in Diamondhead to a string of vehicle burglaries that had Waveland police on the lookout.

Diamondhead officials said an 18-year-old Waveland resident was arrested in connection to recent burglaries in the Hilo Way and Hanalai Circle neighborhoods.

The identity of the suspect has not been released, and police said more arrests are expected in the case.

Waveland police said the primary targets in their city have been unlocked cars parked at the beach. Officials said crooks are looking for loose cash or credit cards to make a quick buck.
