Man arrested for 3 home invasions in San Tan ValleyPosted: Updated:
SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. -- A man has been arrested in connection with three home invasions in San Tan Valley this week.
Pinal County Sheriff's deputies arrested 22-year-old Keegan Humphrey early Friday morning on multiple charges.
Humphrey allegedly entered a home in the 2800 block of West Goldmine Mountain Drive around 2:30 a.m. Thursday, threatened to kill a resident, and asked where guns, medications and wallets were kept. He reportedly fled with medication.
Shortly after deputies responded to the home, they received a report of a burglary and a report of a suspicious person in the same area.
Sometime between 9:30 p.m. and 4:48 a.m., electronic equipment, three wallets and a .45-caliber handgun were stolen from a home on North Cherry Creek Road.
Investigators believe the front doors were left unlocked in both incidents.
Around 1:30 a.m. Friday, the sheriff's office received a report of a burglary in progress in the 3000 block of West Belle Avenue. The caller said the victim chased the suspect until the suspect pulled a gun on him.
A deputy located Humphrey in the area. Humphrey reportedly appeared to be compliant at first but then fled on foot.
Deputies established a perimeter and called in a K-9. They again located Humphrey and took him into custody.
He was reportedly in possession of a .45-caliber handgun similar to the one reported stolen.
Humphrey was booked into jail on one count of aggravated assault, one count of trespassing, two counts of resisting arrest, two counts of robbery, three counts of burglary and 14 counts of intimidation including stalking.
According to the sheriff's office, nearly all of the stolen property was recovered from Humphrey's home on Friday.
"The speed at which this individual was removed from the streets was vital, as we knew a weapon was now in the suspect’s possession from the burglary the night before," Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said in a statement. "I commend the work of our deputies and detectives."
