Glendale police said the group has been linked to crimes in Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Phoenix, Surprise and Tucson with an estimated dollar loss in the hundreds of thousands.

Investigators from several law enforcement agencies established probable cause for search warrants at three Phoenix area locations where three suspects were arrested and property and evidence of the thefts were found.

Glendale detectives arrested 19-year-old Marquis Perkins, 22-year-old Deyon Bowser, and 21-year-old Jermaine Williams, all of Phoenix.
