BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A Binghamton man suspected of breaking into a number of businesses, commercial buildings, and churches has been arrested.

Fifty-one-year old Jeffrey Martin of Binghamton was arrested Tuesday.

He's accused of breaking into and stealing from the Metro Inter-faith Apartments building and recreation room on Chenango Street, where he allegedly stole televisions, an amplifier and other electronics.

He's also accused of attempted burglary at a private practice law office on Court Street along with forcible entry of a commercial building.
