Yuma po­lice have ar­rested a 22-year-old man who is al­legedly one of the two sus­pects sought in the theft of items from the do­na­tion stor­age area of a non-profit thrift store on four oc­ca­sions.

Sgt. Lori Franklin, a spokesper­son for the Yuma Po­lice De­part­ment, said that Jaime Ro­driguez was ar­rested at 7:28 a.m. Wed­nes­day in the area of the 1300 block of Colorado Street.

“He has been re­lated to two of the three bur­glar­ies,” Franklin said.

Ro­driguez was booked into the Yuma County jail on three counts of burglary and three counts of theft.

The thefts oc­curred over a two-day pe­riod be­tween May 31 and June 1 at the Am­berly’s Place Thrift Shop, 812 S. Av­enue A.

The sus­pects were caught on sur­veil­lance cam­eras tak­ing var­i­ous items that had been do­nated to the agency out of crates kept in the agency’s stor­age area, which is on the side of the build­ing and en­closed by a locked fence.

Ac­cord­ing to Am­ber­ley’s Place, the thieves stole well over $1,000 worth of mer­chan­dise.
