According to the Kent County Sheriff’s Department, a total of 11 ice cream shops across multiple counties were robbed between July 22 and July 30, WOOD reported.

Although authorities arrested a suspect in connection to the spree on outstanding warrants, 25-year-old Cameron Harris is accused of hitting three more ice cream shops the night following his Thursday release with an electronic tether, the TV station reported.

The electronic monitor placed Harris at the three Friday night break-ins, resulting in his arrest at a Red Roof Inn that same night on three additional breaking and entering with intent charges, WXMI reported.
