There has been another arrest made in connection to the recent theft of $600,000 from the Vanderbilt Law School.

Samuel Wakefield, 30, was booked Wednesday morning at the Davidson County Jail.

According to an indictment, he faces felony charges after the theft and is being held on $350,000 bond.

The Channel 4 I-team reported Friday that Wakefield's partner, Jason Hunt, was arrested in Montgomery County, AR, by U.S. Marshals.

The sheriff's department in that county confirmed that Hunt is accused of helping to steal the $600,000.

Hunt worked for a number of years in the law school performing financial transactions.

Both Hunt and Wakefield had recently opened a club in Mexico.
