A man accused of breaking into several businesses turned himself in to police as they were searching for him early Monday morning.

Police said their investigation began around 3 a.m., when a burglar alarm went off at a business on East Fillmore Street. Around the same time, a burglar alarm went off at a business in the University Village area of North Nevada Avenue. Officers went to both businesses and found evidence of break-ins. During the investigation, more burglar alarms went off, and police found those businesses had also been broken into. 

Police spotted the suspect on North Academy Boulevard, but he ran away. As officers and a K9 were searching for him, he approached the officers and turned himself in, according to police. 

The suspect’s name has not yet been released.
