LAGRANGE, GA (WTVM) - Detectives in LaGrange say they have cracked the case of the suspect they call 'The Lafayette Parkway Car Bandit.'

An arrest was made in the case this week, allowing police to recover stolen guns.

The unidentified suspect was eventually tracked down in Alabama.

Police say he could be involved in similar crimes up and down I-85 through Alabama and towards Atlanta.

Police are now trying to return the stolen items to their owners.
