Police say the 24-year-old Bethlehem resident was arrested early Friday after being found with silver spray paint and chocolate on his hands and clothes. They say that helped tie him to a nearby burglary in which pudding and chocolate syrup were spread across the floor and graffiti was spray-painted on the walls.
The man is accused of the burglaries at off-campus apartments of Lehigh University students.
Bethlehem Detective Sgt. Mark DiLuzio says the man admitted the burglaries but claimed another man broke into the apartments and let him in.
