A Norfolk man was arrested for burglary and other charges early Wednesday morning when he was found inside a business.

Capt. Leon Chapman said police responded at 6:18 a.m. Wednesday to an intrusion alarm at Speedway Auto Parts, 807 E. Norfolk Ave.

When police arrived, they found a man inside the main building wearing a ski mask, dark colored clothing and glove, Chapman said.

Officers arrested the man, identified as Michael K. Larkowski Jr., 26, Norfolk, for burglary.

While searching Larkowski, police located a Zip-lock baggy with a white powdery substance inside and another Zip-lock baggy containing 39 yellow tablets, Chapman said.

The white powdery substance was field tested. The powder was identified as methamphetamine, he said.

Larkowski was also arrested for possession of methamphetamine and possession of a schedule IV controlled substance.

While responding to the area, another officer observed another man walking from the direction of Speedway Auto who was also dressed in dark clothing, Chapman said.

Later in the morning the Norfolk 911 Communications Center received a call from a subject inquiring about Larkowski.

Following further investigation, police identified the man walking away from Speedway Auto and the caller asking questions about Larkowski as being the same person. He was also involved with the burglary, police said.

Police arrested Jeffrey L. Hoadley, 21, Norfolk, for accessory to burglary. Both men were lodged in the Norfolk city jail.

In addition, Larkowski was also arrested by a Norfolk Police/SNARE Drug Task Force investigator for two counts of delivery of a controlled substance based on two separate sales of methamphetamine to a confidential informant in November 2012, Chapman said.
