The burglary suspect who caused the lock down of Camp Bullis last week has been arrested, according to U.S. Marshals.

Robert Lynch, 28, was initially arrested on Aug. 6 in connection to multiple burglaries in Bandera County. Officials said Lynch started a crime spree Friday, Aug. 3, breaking into at least four homes and stealing vehicles. A deputy was driving Lynch in to Bandera when he opened the door to get out of the vehicle while he was handcuffed. Lynch then ran into the woods.

On Aug. 14, Camp Bullis was on lock down for nearly the entire day after an officer spotted him in the area.

Lynch was arrested in the 20000 block of Carrie Louise Street Tuesday afternoon thanks to the public's help, according to U.S. Marshals. He faces various charges related to burglary of a habitat, theft, felon in possession of a firearm, theft of a firearm and failure to comply with sex offender registration conditions.
