Angel Meza of Eloy blames devil for burglary

ELOY, AZ - A man who was arrested for breaking into and burglarizing an Arizona City home says he was set up by the devil.

Angel Meza of Eloy was seen running through a neighborhood carrying a gun after the homeowner called police Monday to report a strange man in her house.

Pinal County sheriff's deputies say Meza tried to load his gun while being chased, but ended up dropping the loaded magazine before he was caught and arrested.

Deputies found items from the house on Meza when he was searched.

Meza allegedly told deputies his decision to break into the house was the devil's work.

He's being held in the county jail on suspicion of residential burglary, trespassing, theft and misconduct involving a weapon.
