MESA, AZ (CBS5) -
A 48-year-old convicted felon was in jail after Mesa police said they found more than $10,000 worth of merchandise taken from a Fry's store near Main Street and Greenfield Road in Mesa that was closed for Thanksgiving.
Robert Lheureux, who was recognized from a store surveillance video from a matching tattoo, was arrested and booked into jail Sunday night with five felony counts in connection with the burglary, which included televisions, iPods, Xbox 360, Wiis, other electronic items and a case of cigarettes, according to a Superior Court document.
Police said a search warrant was executed at Lheureux's home and police found several of the electronics, the cigarettes and packaging with Fry's labels. A shirt similar to one worn by the suspect in the video was found stuffed in a box of trash.
Police said Lheureux admitted to having sold some of the items.
Several knives and brass knuckles were also found on a desk and because Lheureux is a felon whose rights have not been restored, he is prohibited from possessing weapons. A white, powdery substance was also found on the desk.
Lheureux was booked without bond on felony counts of trafficking in stolen property, theft, burglary, possession of a dangerous weapon by a prohibited person, and drug possession.
