(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Fillmore County authorities have arrested a man suspected of several break-ins and burglaries.

Michael Niemeyer, 32, of Rochester was arrested in Mower County Thursday.

Investigators say he admitted to breaking into St. John's Lutheran School in Wykoff, First Baptist Church in Spring Valley, and several other area businesses.

A task force of local law enforcement also executed a search warrant of rural home connected to Niemeyer's arrest.  At that Spring Valley location, authorities recovered stolen property, small amounts of meth and guns.  Evidence of a meth lab was also discovered.

As a result, Mark Burrington, 52, was arrested for drug possession.  Further charges are pending.

Niemeyer is being held in the Mower county jail.
