LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a suspect has been arrested in connection with several e-cigarette store burglaries.

Tobias Enix, 18, is accused of committing the burglaries according to LMPD spokesperson Dwight Mitchell.

Enix is charged with 11 counts of third-degree burglary, one count of receiving stolen property and one count of criminal mischief.

Police investigated after thousands of dollars worth of e-cigarettes and cash were stolen from two Louisville businesses in the past few days.

Troy LeBlanc, the owner of Derb E Cigs on Poplar Level Road, stated two of his stores have been burglarized since Wednesday. He said the most-recent break-in happened early Friday morning at the Poplar Level location. LeBlanc said he's out between $4,000 and $6,000 in cash and merchandise after the break-ins.

Another vape shop was broken into during the early morning hours Thursday. Ryan Burkhead owns Vapor Lab on Outer Loop and said someone threw a cinder block through the glass door and ran off with two bottles of e-liquid and both cash registers. He said both registers were empty, and the products were only worth $30. However, he said the thief caused around $2,800 in damage in the process.

Enix is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $25,000 cash bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing and more charges may be filed.
