Marcus Pulliam, suspect, was arrested in connection of multiple break-ins and starting a fire at an Atwater business complex.

Atwater Police Chief Michael Salvador says officers responded to a commercial burglary alarm at the 500 blk  E. Bellevue Road at 3:50 am.

Officers responded to the incident and located evidence of both a break-in and fire set at the location. Evidence at the scene linked this case to a series of break-ins in the same business complex over the past several days, Salvador says.

According to Salvador, surveillance video at the business led officers to identify a suspect in the case.
