Lawrence police on Friday arrested a man wanted in connection with a series of burglaries in recent months.

Cody A. Barnes, 18, was arrested near 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue about 9 p.m., according to jail logs. He was taken into custody on suspicion of aggravated burglary, burglary of a vehicle, criminal use of a financial card and two counts of theft. His bond was set at $50,000.

A called-in tip led to his arrest after officials issued a warrant on Thursday, Sgt. Trent McKinley said.

Earlier this week, Lawrence police named Barnes as a suspect in burglaries for which two other 18-year-old Lawrence men, Ronnie E. Taylor and Markcus T. Sanders, have been arrested and charged.

Barnes remained in custody Saturday afternoon.
