The man accused of shooting a Phoenix police officer has a lengthy criminal history – including two crimes for which he was sentenced to prison.
According to prison records, Brandon McCabe served nearly five years for theft and stealing a vehicle.
Court records indicate he stole a 1998 Nissan in October 2006 and used it for a “couple days” while he burglarized a home. Witnesses watched him use a crow bar to enter the home on the 6100 block of 17th Avenue in Phoenix. Police said he was in possession of several burglary tools when he was arrested.
In May 2006, witnesses found McCabe burglarizing a vehicle on the 4300 block of 19th Avenue in Phoenix.
McCabe admitted to sifting through the glove box in search of anything to trade for drugs. Witnesses detained him until police arrived. At that time, McCabe told police he had a crack cocaine addiction.
In April 2006, McCabe was arrested for trafficking in stolen property. He was accused of stealing $8,000 worth of machine parts and trying to resell them at a recycling center.
McCabe was released from prison in February 2012, according to the Arizona Department of Corrections.
He was busted for shoplifting in October.
