PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- A Chino Valley man was jailed after the victim of a Phoenix burglary and authorities used GPS tracking to locate one of the stolen items.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said the burglar took electronic items and jewelry but that the victim had installed a tracking device in one item.

The victim contacted authorities after using the GPS system to track the item to a Chino Valley home.

Deputies went to the home and were allowed to search it. The locator led them to the bedroom of the homeowner's son, and deputies found items stolen in the burglary under the bed.

The Sheriff's Office said 37-year-old James Yunis later was arrested and jailed.
