A Myrtle Beach man arrested during the weekend in Myrtle Beach on burglary charges has been linked to five other burglaries in the same neighborhood, according to authorities.
Rakeem Jamal Spivey, 19, of Myrtle Beach, was charged with five counts of first-degree burglary and one count of second-degree burglary after Horry County police arrested him about 10 p.m. Sunday, according to Sgt. Robert Kegler with the Horry County Police Department.
Spivey is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center pending a bond hearing.
Spivey was arrested after police responded to an address on Seabert Road in the Myrtle Beach section of Horry County for a burglary in progress, Kegler said. When officers arrived, they found a television belonging to the homeowner in some nearby bushes.
In addition to a burglary charge in that incident, police charged Spivey in connection with five other burglaries in the same neighborhood that occurred in late June and early July, Kegler said. Detectives linked Spivey to the other incidents.
