PEORIA, Ariz. -- Two people have been arrested in connection with dozens of burglaries in Peoria, Sun City, Glendale and Phoenix.

Daniel Grant, 39, and Nicole Ericson, 27, are facing multiple counts of residential and vehicle burglary.

Peoria police spokeswoman Amanda Jacinto said garage door openers were taken from vehicles in church parking lots and then used to gain access to homes.

Law enforcement agencies created a task force to find the people responsible for these burglaries and were able to identify a vehicle being used by the suspects, which led to the identification of Grant and Ericson.

Officers located the couple in Phoenix on June 24. Jacinto said they attempted to evade arrest and fought with officers before being taken into custody.
