NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police say they have caught a man suspected of breaking into 10 businesses since the first of the year.

Jovany Garces was allegedly hiding in a child's closet in his apartment on Linbar Drive when police arrived, working on a tip from Crime Stoppers.

Investigators say they also found a safe in a bedroom that was allegedly stolen in one of the burglaries.

Among the break-ins Garces is suspected of committing was the Wednesday morning burglary at Twin Kegs Bar on Thompson Lane.

Garces' wife, 37-year-old Janitzia Amor, is accused of driving her husband to some of the burglary locations. She is charged with three counts of burglary facilitation.
