A man, who blamed an addiction to heroin for a pair of business-related burglaries, was arrested on a burglary charge on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Madison Police Department.
The man was found in the parking lot of the Red Roof Inn on Madison's far east side with a significant gash on his arm at about 4 p.m., police said.
Wasim Hakim, 19, of Monona, was cooperative and remorseful, police said.
Police said Hakim was linked to the burglary at a hotel as well as a burglary at an auto repair shop on Stewart Street on Madison's south side.

He also faces charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of bail jumping.
