BAKER - A burglary arrest is raising questions, after Baker Police said one of the suspects is also accused in a murder and was wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet at the time of his arrest.

Baker Police arrested Derrick Lucas in connection with a burglary on Balm Street in Baker, along with two other suspects: Stevon Jones, 17, and Broderick Morgan, 20.

Last year, Lucas was arrested for the murder of Joshua Weathersby. He was out on bond and wearing an ankle monitor, which is intended to alert police when he leaves a certain area.  Police also said he'd been arrested for criminal trespassing prior to the burglary arrest.

News 2's Rob Krieger will have more on the situation tonight on News 2 at 6.
