A man and woman are accused of burglarizing a Phoenix home earlier this month.
Michael Henline, 46, was under police investigation in connection to an attempted burglary in November. While being followed by detectives, Henline was seen meeting with 36-year-old Ceri Carroll on March 1.
Investigators watched the pair as they met in a parking lot near 32nd Street and Bell Road. Henline was allegedly seen putting burglary tools in a bag and placing it in Carroll's car.
According to police, Henline and Carroll went to a nearby neighborhood where they were seen taking the license plate off the vehicle.
Henline allegedly broke into a home and left with $1,000 worth of items. When the suspects drove back to Henline's car police arrested them, authorities said.
Court records show that Henline has five prior felony convictions ad served prison time on three occasions. He allegedly told police that if he weren't caught, he would continue to burglarize homes and use drugs.
Police said Carroll has five felony convictions and is due to be sentenced on Friday for one of those offenses.
Both have been charged with burglary and attempted burglary.
