Newnan, Georgia -- Courtney Lockhart, the man who confessed  to the killing of Auburn University freshman Lauren Burk, has been linked to yet another crime.

Newnan, Georgia police were looking for Lockhart after surveillance video captured him trying to steal the car of an elderly woman in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

He tried to hold the woman at gunpoint, but the video shows him jumping out of the moving car and quickly fleeing the scene after seeing that witnesses were calling the police.

The video captured the tag number of the car, and that's when Georgia officials called the Lee County Sheriff's office where the tag was registered.

Within half an hour of posting a lookout for the car, Lockhart was arrested in Phenix City.

Lockhart is also connected to the armed hold-up of a women and her 3-year old child at a Columbus, Georgia Wal-Mart.

Lockhart confessed to the robbery, attempted rape and murder of Lauren Burk on Monday.

He is being held in solitary confinement at the Lee County Jail.
