PD: Man on probation caught stealing bows from Chandler archery store

CHANDLER, AZ - A convicted felon, being monitored with an ankle bracelet, is accused of committing more thefts. This time allegedly stealing nearly $5,000 in bows from a Chandler archery store.

Chandler police report that in August of this year, 30-year-old Michael Ray Alfaro committed three thefts, costing businesses near Kyrene Road and Chandler Boulevard more than $7,200 in products and damage.

Police say several weeks later they received a tip saying Alfaro recently committed multiple commercial burglaries and was in possession of several bows and crossbows.

Chandler police also learned that Alfaro was already arrested for eight counts of burglary in Scottsdale and was assigned an electronic monitoring device.

The device was active at the time of the thefts in Chandler and reportedly shows Alfaro at the location scenes at the time of the thefts.

Police say, "Michael Alfaro's criminal history shows a plethora of arrests and convictions ranging from vehicle theft, criminal damage, and burglary."

He is now being held without bond on additional burglary charges.
