A Sun Lakes man accused of robbing dozens of homes and stealing $100,000 worth of items is behind bars.
He was caught while trying to sell the items at area pawn shops, ranging from jewelry, cash, and even a stamp collection.
"There are a lot of elderly people who live around here, and someone could get hurt," said resident Julie Borris.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio says his deputies got a tip from Chandler Police which led them to Hale.
He says he hit 42 homes in the Sun Lakes, Chandler, and Phoenix areas.
"Forty-two homes in a short time period. Not like the 'Rock Burglar,' who operated for years, this guy lasted maybe two months," said Arpaio.
The Rock Burglar hit homes in the Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and Fountain Hills for nearly two decades.
Hale lived with his mother in Sun Lakes. She refused to speak to ABC15.
