The suspect was identified as Stephen Maxwell.  He was arrested at the scene for burglary of a building and the case was then turned over to detectives to continue the investigation for possible links to unsolved burglaries in the area.  Through the diligent efforts of the Property Crimes section Maxwell was linked to 5 additional burglaries in the Jacksboro Hwy area dating back to December of last year. Total bond amount for the burglaries was set at $35,000
