A 20-year-old man with no known permanent address was arrested Wednesday by Amherst police detectives on Parkhaven Drive near a house that he is accused of burglarizing on Tuesday.

Andrew Lester is charged with felony burglary and grand larceny for allegedly breaking into the house in the town’s Willow Ridge section and stealing money and jewelry late Tuesday.

Det. Lt. Richard S. Walter credited Detectives Robert Cunningham and James Jackson for investigating Lester’s alleged link to the house break-in.
