The long search for a suspected burglary ring member connected to two dozen 2013 burglaries ended Tuesday when officers executed a search warrant at a Victory Drive address, according to a Columbus Police report.
Delmorris Boyd, 26, was charged with intent to distribute ecstasy and intent to distribute marijuana. He was arrested at about 9:40 p.m. after a search warrant was conducted at a 3000 block home.
Police believe Boyd to be a member of a 10-person group that targeted 26 homes in east and north Columbus in the fall of 2013. He is accused of participating in a burglary at a St. Mary's Road address on Sept. 30, 2013.

Later that day, managers at the 1024 Veterans Parkway Econo Lodge spotted the Acura — which had been reported stolen — along with a stolen Maxima. During a search of some of the hotel's rooms, police arrested Laquinton Robinson, 22, Rickey Henderson, 19, Jacobee Matthews, 20, Demon Moore, 20, and Emmanuel Williams, 18.
Officers also found large flat screen TVs, Samsung and iPhone cellphones, a Playstation 3 and the keys to the grey Acura, according to earlier reports.
Wayman McMillian, 18, was later accused of crashing the Maxima at an unnamed apartment complex downtown after leading police on a high speed chase. McMillian was arrested Dec. 4 after he sought treatment at the Midtown Medical Center for self-inflicted gunshot wounds to both legs.
