CHANDLER, AZ - Authorities say a Mesa man has been arrested in connection with a string of vending machine burglaries in Chandler.
Chandler police say 32-year-old Christopher Jon Ash was identified as a suspect in the case through photographs and surveillance video.
He's being held on suspicion of six counts of third-degree burglary, four counts of possession of burglary tools and one count of theft control of stolen property.
Police say Ash fled the scene by the time officers arrived, but was arrested later at a traffic stop.
They say Ash has been charged with two additional burglaries in Chandler this month and three last August.
It's unclear if Ash has a lawyer yet.
