CENTRAL - Local law enforcement agencies are on the hunt for a second suspect that may be connected to a burglary last month. 

In June, police say the two men broke into a storage shed on Greenwell Springs Road to steal gardening and power tools. Later that month, the tools were spotted in 33-year-old Gary Hooper's truck. When approached by police, he said he purchased them from the victim. 

On July 1, Hooper's truck was spotted on Blackwater Road. When police pulled him over, he and a female suspect fled on foot.

Hooper was arrested during that chase and booked for simple burglary. The second suspect remains at large.
