Danville police are hoping to connect two recent burglaries on Maple Avenue to a Harrodsburg man they arrested on warrants from Kansas and Missouri.
The man was arrested July 31 on a warrant from Kansas for aggravated burglary and one from Missouri for vehicle tampering.
Kansas has agreed to extradite the man, said interim Danville Police Chief Tony Gray.
Police picked up the man after he approached the attendant at Off Centre Laundry, asked to borrow $15 and offered to leave his ID card as collateral. The attendant's parents became suspicious and called Danville police to check him out. When he returned to the laundry the next day to pick up his ID, he was arrested on the outstanding warrants, Gray said.
Investigators are now trying to link him to burglaries that occurred July 30 at 625 and 501 N. Maple Ave., in which a purse and other items were taken.
