SHELBY COUNTY, TN (WMC) -

A man accused of being a part of a suspected car burglary ring was arrested Friday night.

Investigators had been searching for 21-year-old Donavin Corona since Wednesday afternoon.

Wednesday, Shelby County Sheriff's deputies arrested 20-year-old William Faulkner and 21-year-old Khalil Curtis. Officers say the two were found in a stolen truck.

According to the affidavit, Corona drove away in a stolen Camaro, but abandoned the car and ran into the woods near Highway 385 and Ridgeway Road.

Friday, investigators arrested three more suspects in connection to the theft investigation. Three women used Corona's phone and pretended to be him in order to lure Corona's friend, Anna Peters, to Cherokee Park to retrieve possessions from her.

Corona has been charged with four counts of theft of property $10,000- $60,000 and evading arrest. He is expected to appear before a judge Monday morning.
