    Mass. State Police confirm Ernest Wallace was arrested in Miramar, Fla. (Published Sunday, Feb 2, 2014)

    (NECN/AP) - On Thursday night, authorities revealed they were seeking Ernest Wallace, who they said should be considered armed and dangerous, and that he was last seen driving a silver Chrysler with Rhode Island tags.

    Friday morning, Massachusetts authorities recovered the car linked to the third suspect in the slaying case involving ex-Patriots player Aaron Hernandez.

    Wallace was wanted on a charge of acting as an accessory after the murder of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

    Ernest Wallace walked into the Miramar Police Department and turned himself in without incident, according to authorities.

    Wallace, a Miramar resident, told authorities he knew had a warrant for his arrest after seeing his name in news reports.

    He invoked his right to counsel.
