A man has been arrested in connection with over 42 burglaries in Sun Lakes, Chandler and Phoenix, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said.

The suspect, 50-year-old Kilian Hale, was arrested after allegedly selling stolen goods to pawn shops while under police surveillance.

Police believe Hale, in at least 42 burglaries, would check out a home and after determining that no one was home, would use a rock to break in to the residence.

"This is another fine example of excellent work by my deputies," said Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a release. "And kudos also to Chandler Police. They gave us a name of the suspect who they saw as a suspicious person. Their hunch and our good detective work put this guy out of business."

It is estimated that Hale stole over $100,000 worth of goods.

Hale was arrested on charges of trafficking in stolen property, burglary, possession of a dangerous drug and possession of marijuana.

Hale lives in Sun Lakes with this mother.

Anyone who has more information Hale, experienced a similar break-in or works at a pawn shop who may have purchased from Hale is asked to call MCSO at (602) 876-1011.
