Glendale police arrested three teens who burglarized nine Glendale homes within 3 miles of each other in two months.

Police said they mostly stole televisions, electronic gaming equipment and jewelry. One of the items police were able to recover was a victim's graduation ring from 1968.

Court documents show that Glendale police arrested three teens, 19-year-old Jesus Zazueta, and two teenage counterparts, age 16 and 17. After receiving a tip on March 2, authorities watched the trio burglarize a home near 53rd and Olive avenues.

Police arrested the teens after pulling them over for a traffic stop, near 55th  and Orangewood avenues. Officers found stolen items in the trunk of the car used in the burglary. 

Investigators also used pawn shop records to link each of them to eight other burglaries in the neighborhoods surrounding Zazueta's home.
