A Moorhead man suspected of a rash of business burglaries now faces charges for trying to break into an insurance agency. He was caught in the act by an officer who was following him on foot.

Twenty-eight year-old Juan Quevedo is charged with attempted burglary accused of trying to break into Strand & Marcy Insurance Agency. An officer walking a half block behind Quevedo says he saw him try to open a window of the Insurance Agency. The business was burglarized last month using the same window. Quevedo was arrested.

He's also a suspect in burglaries late last week at John Alexander's and Juano's restaurants, Riverzen and Joni Salon and Spa, all in Moorhead. Officers are using fingerprints to link a lone suspect to a long list of burglaries in the last couple of months, including a home invasion in the 1100 block of Fifth Street South.

So far Quevado only faces charges in the attempted burglary at Strand & Marcy.
