Fort Wayne police have made an arrest on a home burglary suspect, and he could have ties to a string of them on Fort Wayne's south west side.

So far they've been able to tie the suspect to at least one of the burglaries.

It happened on the 4000 block of South Harrison Street.

His name is Christian William Bradley.

He's a 21-year-old Fort Wayne resident, and so far, has been charged with a class 'B' felony burglary.

Police say they were able to identify him when they found latent prints, is what they call them, on around the window sill and inside the house.

And they say he had not been invited in, through their investigation, which led them to believe that his prints were the ones matching the suspect's.

As of right now, he has not been tied to any of the other burglaries that have occurred, but they are still investigating.

Another possibility- they're also looking into the possibility of more people who might be involved with some of the burglaries around the area.
Fort Wayne Police Officer Michael Joyner says it's likely, as there's been numerous burglaries in the Harrison Hill and Southwood Park housing areas lately.

"I can tell you that last Saturday, in a window of just early morning hours, we had seven homes, again, that were either burgled or attempted. Take that into consideration, and in a period of time going back from September the 9th through the 18th of September, we had close to thirty houses in the Southwood Park Neighborhood Association that were either burgled or attempted,” Joyner says.

Fort Wayne police are still investigating the possibility of other suspects in the ring of burglaries themselves.

Now Joyner says if you've had something stolen, contact the Fort Wayne Police Department, so they have a record of it, so they can get that back to you if they recover it.
