A third suspect wanted in connection with the murder of one of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez's friends was arrested in Miramar, Fla. on Friday, reports FOX 25 in Boston.

The Massachusetts State Police also confirmed the report.

Police issued an alert and wanted poster for Ernest Wallace yesterday, considering him armed and dangerous. Authorities say he's wanted for accessory after the fact of the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd last week in North Attleborough, Mass., near Hernandez's home.

Earlier in the day, police found the Chrysler 300 with Rhode Island license plates Wallace was seen driving.
