GLENDALE, AZ - A convicted felon has been arrested in connection with ten thefts in Glendale and Phoenix, allegedly stealing items including a boat, quads, lawnmowers, and even pies.
Glendale police say that on April 11 a trailer theft was reported to them in a neighborhood near 51st and Northern avenues. There were two quads on the trailer at the time it was stolen. Police say a few weeks later another trailer was stolen in the same neighborhood. This time the owner's surveillance video recorded a 'heavy-set' male driving a white 2004 to 2008 Ford Expedition with no license plate.
Over the next few days, more reports came in showing a white Ford Expedition involved in crimes in the same area. A boat, lawnmower, and tools were reportedly taken.
On June 14 police located the Expedition with a lawnmower in the back. As they got behind the vehicle, it sped off, going over 100 miles per hour.
Police determined that the suspect was 43-year-old Tiziano Ugo Pasquale, a man on probation for doing two stints in prison for theft.
Police began surveillance on Pasquale and allegedly observed him stealing tools, another lawnmower, and on June 21, they reportedly saw Pasquale take several boxes of pies from a food delivery truck.
The next day police captured Pasquale near 43rd Avenue and Cactus Road. In a search of his home, they reportedly found many of the stolen items, including a stolen box of pie in the freezer.
Pasquale is being held without bond on multiple counts of burglary and theft.
