NEW YORK (AP) - Police in New York City have arrested a suspect in connection with the death of a man whose body was found stuffed inside a plastic storage container.

Police said Sunday that 24-year-old Joshua Simser, of Brooklyn, was arrested on a murder charge. Information on his lawyer was not immediately available.

The unidentified victim was discovered at Simser’s home in the Flatlands neighborhood of Brooklyn Saturday afternoon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they had gone to the home after a Brooklyn nightclub owner called police to report that a bouncer at the club admitted to the owner that he’d killed a man. It wasn’t clear if Simser was the bouncer.
