SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A burglar left his resume behind after allegedly stealing over $200,000 worth of items from homes in Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and Surprise.
Scottsdale police report that on November 7, 39-year-old Erin Shay Sullivan was arrested in Glendale for the burglary of three homes.
Police say on October 24, Sullivan entered a home near Hayden and Cactus roads in Scottsdale, where he took $15,000 worth of jewelry and a handgun. The homeowner alerted police to a black binder in the home, which didn't belong to the family. Inside the binder was a resume for Erin Sullivan.
Sullivan is an 11-time convicted felon, currently on probation after being released from prison in June 2016.
His probation officer reportedly told police that Sullivan was working as a door-to-door salesperson.
Sullivan's car was allegedly found to have been at a home in Surprise that was also burglarized. There he reportedly stole a significant amount of camera equipment.
Sullivan continued his forgetful ways, leaving his cell phone behind in a Paradise Valley home that he burglarized. He allegedly stole $200,000 in jewelry, watches, luggage, and a key fob for a Bentley.
Police report that in the three burglaries, Sullivan took over $223,625 worth of items.
Police say many of the stolen items were located in Sullivan's car. They found about $100,000 worth of jewelry and watches in Sullivan's home, hidden in cereal boxes.
He has been charged with theft and multiple counts of burglary.
