Carrollton police recently arrested a man and charged him with seven counts of burglary of a habitation, officials said.
After a four-month investigation, detectives from the criminal investigations division, property crimes section and intelligence division followed the 27-year-old suspect into a neighborhood near East Rosemeade Parkway and Province Drive, where police said he allegedly burglarized a residence in the 2000 block of Cologne Drive on Oct. 14.
According to a police news release, the man was stopped and placed into custody minutes after the burglary. At that time, detectives discovered property allegedly taken in the burglary, police said.
Search warrants for the man’s vehicle and apartment resulted in the recovery of property allegedly stolen in 10 separate burglaries in Carrollton since July. Most of the property has been returned to the owners, police said.
The investigation cleared 26 felony home burglaries in the city, according to the release.
