SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police in Sioux Falls say thieves in the past few months have dug holes in the drywall separating apartment garages and have burglarized over 10 of them.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the most recent incident in which police believe a suspect moved from one garage to another through holes in the walls happened Monday.

Clemens police went through a hole and found the suspect, covered in drywall dust, hiding under a car in another garage.

Clemens says the 22-year-old Colton man had various items that police believe were stolen. The man is in custody on various charges including six counts of third-degree burglary.

Clemens says police aren’t sure whether the suspect is connected to other 10 to 15 cases where garages were burglarized after thieves entered through the walls.
