A suspect has been arrested and charged in a string of burglaries that occurred in Lincolnton, according to authorities.

Lincolnton resident Robert Bryan, 35, was arrested on Sunday and is accused of four felony break-ins that happened between September and October. Three of the break-ins took place at the same location near 900 McRee Road.

Assorted power tools valued at around $20,000 were stolen along with racing wheels priced at over $3,000 and a $2,400 guitar, among other items.
