MONROE -- Crimestopper tips led Monroe police to catch a man who is accused of burglarizing two businesses.
Detectives charge 54-year old Clyde Wyatt with four counts of burglary for stealing from Monroe Welding Supply and Ryan Chevrolet on Oliver Road in mid-November.
Monroe police say Wyatt stole thousands of dollars worth of mechanics tools from the Ryan auto shop.
He stole fans, oxygen tanks, equipment, chemicals, and supplies in a 10 hour heist at the welding supply. Police say Wyatt lived nearby and transported the items back to his home before returning back for more.
Monroe police were able to recover several of the items taken.
Wyatt is currently in custody for unrelated charges at Richwood Correctional Center.
