Authorities say a man who got out of the East Feliciana Parish Jail on Tuesday is accused of breaking into a convenience store early Wednesday.

Sheriff Talmadge Bunch tells The Advocate that deputies arrested 22-year-old Christopher Lee Whitfield after identifying him in surveillance video from a burglarized store between Jackson and Clinton.

Bunch said Whitfield had been jailed on a judge's order in a child support matter, but was released Tuesday.

Detective Don McKey said Whitfield was booked with simple burglary, but he also is a suspect in three earlier burglaries in the area.
