PRATT, Kan. -

Pratt County Sheriff's Officers have been investigating a string of burglaries over the past 36 hours.

Officers say they found a 2000 Mercury around 8 a.m. Thursday morning. The car was abandoned in a field north of Iuka. Shortly after finding the car, they received a call that another vehicle was stolen from a residence northeast of Iuka.

Thursday afternoon they responded to another burglary scene seven miles north of Cullison.

Then, around 2:30 a.m. on Friday, the Pratt County Sheriff's Officers say they were called to another crime at a home eight miles north of Cullison. The caller reported that he discovered the burglar in his home.

A deputy took the suspect, Landon Hlavachick, 19, of Pratt, into custody. He was booked into the Pratt County Jail for aggravated burglary and criminal trespass.

Officers say information from the Friday afternoon burglary helped lead them to follow footprints and tire tracks. They found a 2005 Lincoln. The vehicle was found northwest of Pratt, and was the car that was reported stolen Thursday morning.

While continuing to investigate these burglary cases, they discovered another burglary northwest of Pratt. Officers say they recovered many items that were stolen as they were tracking a suspect on foot from one crime scene to another.

The burglaries are still being investigated. Further charges and arrests may follow.
