Deputies have arrested a man believed to be behind a string of burglaries in Madison County.

According to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, 28-year-old Timothy Clark is in custody tonight after a local business tipped off investigators that Clark may have been trying to sell stolen property there.

Deputies say a similar incident involving Clark happened back on December 4th at a GameStop.

Deputies released a photo of Clark taken from the store's surveillance camera after they say he tried to sell stolen property to the store.

Officials say several houses have also been targeted in the area, including reports on Moore's Mill Road, Winchester Road, Shields Road and Homer Nance Road.

“I’m constantly looking out the windows. This is how I’m living."

That's what one neighbor said about the recent break-ins in her neighborhood.

She added that she’s always on edge, never feeling comfortable or safe in her own home.

“To tell you the truth, I’m really afraid. I’m afraid.”

However, she says she’s not surprised to hear about the recent string of burglaries that have happened so close to home.

In fact, she says she's been targeted before, telling WAAY 31 someone stole several items from her porch.

Other neighbors say while they’re shocked to hear about the break-ins, they feel safe and are ready to protect themselves if need be.

“We have an alarm system. We have security cameras. We have shotguns in my house, and we have my big daddy, so all I have to say to them is if they’re going to come, they have to be scared," 14-year-old neighbor Harper Henderson said.

Officials tell WAAY 31 they’re hoping community members will have less to worry about now that Clark is in custody.

They say he was arrested after a local business gave them a description of his car.

Investigators saw his car on Governors Drive, and when they got behind him, they say he pulled into a parking lot, jumped out, and started running.

After a short chase, Clark was taken into custody, and deputies say he was possessing stolen property at the time of the arrest.

According to deputies, Clark already had warrants for his arrest in Madison County as well as warrants from some other surrounding agencies.

He is now facing additional theft charges and charges for possessing narcotics.

Clark remains in the Madison County Jail facing multiple burglary and theft charges.
