PHOENIX — A man is in custody in connection with more than 50 beer thefts over nine months at Phoenix-area convenience stores.

Phoenix police said Angelo De Leon allegedly targeted Circle K stores between May 2013 and last month.

Authorities said the thefts totaled nearly $6,900.

Surveillance video helped identify De Leon as a suspect.

He was arrested Wednesday and booked into jail on suspicion of 54 counts of organized retail theft.
