They say police in Florida arrested Lloyd earlier this month and extradited him to New York, where he's facing several burglary charges.

Officers say Lloyd could be linked to dozens of other burglaries all over Fairfield County and New York.

They say two other local police departments will be applying for arrest warrants for him soon.
