Fort Wayne police say they have arrested a second suspect in connection with a string of robberies that happened in apartment complexes during January.

Corey L. Harris, 21, of Fort Wayne, was arrested Tuesday by Fort Wayne Police detectives and taken to the Allen County Jail on two separate charges: receiving stolen property and obstruction of justice.

Evidence discovered during a search of Harris' home linked him to a robbery that occurred Jan. 8 at the Autumn Creek apartment complex at 2122 Ardmore Ave., police said. Their investigation revealed that Harris assisted in disposing of property taken during the robbery, police said in a news release announcing his arrest.
