Police in Florida have arrested a third man in the Aaron Hernandez murder case.
Massachusetts State Police said that Ernest Wallace was arrested in Miramar, Fla., Friday afternoon in connection to the killing of Odin Lloyd.
The 41-year-old Wallace is accused of being an accessory after the fact in the murder.
Police had released an updated wanted poster for Wallace Friday. They listed Connecticut, Massachusetts, Georgia and Florida as places that should pay special attention as to where Wallace might be. He was also listed as "armed and dangerous."
Massachusetts State Police's Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section was involved in the arrest.
Police had also recovered the Chrysler 300 Wallace was believed to have been driving the day of the murder.
The Boston Globe reported that the car was found in Bristol, Conn. after a resident of an apartment complex saw news reports about Wallace and realized a similar vehicle had been sitting in their parking lot for almost a week. According to the Globe, the resident checked the license plate and called police.
The car was then towed. The resident told the Globe that the car first appeared in the lot either Friday or Saturday.
Lloyd was killed on June 17 in North Attleboro. Shortly after his body was discovered, investigators began looking for the Chrysler.
Hernandez, who was a New England Patriots tight end until he was dropped by the team this week, has been held without bail after being charged with murder in Lloyd's death.
The sportswear company Puma sportswear, who had signed Hernandez to a two-year deal in April, dropped Hernandez on Friday. CytoSport, maker of the Muscle Milk supplement drink, dropped Hernandez last week.
Another man, 27-year-old Carlos Ortiz, was arrested in Bristol as a fugitive from justice Wednesday. Ortiz was arrested for illegally possessing a firearm in North Attleboro on the morning of Lloyd's death.
