John Michael Klink is charged with felony burglary and failure to register as a felon.
Klink made his first appearance in court Wednesday morning.
Investigators say a crime stoppers tip and phone records lead them to Klink.
Investigators believe since august he may have been involved in a number of commercial burglaries in downtown Abbeville.
"My concern was that someone was going to get hurt, and I hope that this brings a resolution to it and I have heard several people that already feel a little but safer and getting back to the old Abbeville," says Abbeville Mayor Ryan Blalock.
Klink is being held in the Henry County Jail on bonds totaling $275,000.
