NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police have arrested one man in connection with a burglary on West 46th Street, one in a string of similar crimes.

The burglary was Monday, inside an office building on West 46th Street, where investigators said the man they arrested was one of two who took off with laptops and electronics. It was the pair's 13th burglary since May, police said.

Tracey Mckeever, 27, of New York, has been arrested and charged with burglary.

Police announced earlier in the week that they were looking for the two men who they said are responsible for more than a dozen burglaries in Manhattan.

Both suspects are described as black men, about 6 feet, with a dark complexion and short black hair.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call 800-577-TIPS.
