GOODYEAR, AZ — Two men have been arrested after allegedly stealing $20,000 in electronics from Franklin Pierce University in Goodyear.

Goodyear police report that on April 10 about 4 a.m. a custodian at Franklin Pierce University near 145th Avenue and Van Buren Street saw a man and woman leaving a building carrying a box.

He recognized the man as Jesse Manual Calderon Pulido, age 30. He described the woman as having pink hair.

A supervisor identified the woman as Allyssa Krueger, age 28.

They soon discovered "a large number of computers were stolen from the University." Some of the stolen items included 14 computers, thumb drives, cash, checks and a briefcase containing medical records.

The university says the value of the property taken is over $20,000.

Goodyear police eventually tracked the couple to a home in Tolleson. They reportedly saw the couple near a U-Haul truck parked by the house.

Police allegedly found 11 computers belonging to the University inside the U-Haul truck. They also reportedly found meth and other drugs inside.

Police say, due to the large amount of property discovered inside the U-Haul they believe the couple has been involved in other west Valley burglaries and future charges are likely.

For now, they have been charged with burglary and various drug charges.
