Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Tenn.- Officers in Portland have arrested a man wanted for breaking into a doctor's office and a local pharmacy.

On Wednesday, police arrested 33-year-old Daryl D. Polk of Springfield. Police said Polk broke into a doctor's office on West Knight Street on January 5 and also robbed the Village Drugs Pharmacy, just down the street. During their investigation officials found that several similar break-ins had been reported in the area as well as Metro Nashville.

Working with several other local police departments, Portland officers were able to identify Polk as a suspect in their case. When they interviewed him about the crime, Polk admitted to breaking into the doctor's office and pharmacy. Police expect Polk to be charged with the other burglaries in other cities.

Polk was arrested and charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of vandalism over $500. He was taken to the Sumner County Jail and is expected in court on January 23, 2013.

Anyone with information on any similar incidents should contact Portland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, Detective Rush at (615) 325-3434.
