LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - According to an arrest report, Lester Terry was arrested and was charged with three counts of third degree burglary on Friday.

The citation states that detectives were alerted that officers located a known burglary suspect that was wanted for questioning.

Once Terry was read his Miranda Rights, he admitted on camera that the three burglaries in question were in fact him. He identified himself by security camera photos and named the businesses when asked, according to the citation.

LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley said Terry stole from European Splendor, ShopBar and J Gumbo’s.

Officials said more charges could be forth coming when detectives receive the rest of the cameras from the area.

Terry is due in jail court on Saturday at 9 a.m.
