CUSTER, S.D. (AP) - A Wyoming man arrested in connection with a break-in at an office has been linked to the theft of $35,000 worth of furs and hides in South Dakota.

The Rapid City Journal reports the Custer County Sheriff’s Office has issued an arrest warrant for 22-year-old Tyrell Legerski in connection with the spring burglary at a Custer, South Dakota, fur store. Legerski is already facing at least 19 charges for burglaries around Gillette.

Store owners discovered on Easter Sunday that someone had stolen over 200 items including buffalo hides and arctic fox hats.

The sheriff’s office says authorities have recovered dozens of furs and hides since Legerski’s arrest, but the items are being held as evidence.
