Phoenix police say a couple of alleged burglars were recently arrested for stealing from a west Phoenix bakery.

On Sunday, the owner of MY GAL SAL Bakery and Cake Pops took to Facebook to post surveillance footage of a man and woman stealing an iPad and cake pops from her shop near 35th Avenue and Greenway Road.

On Tuesday, a person contacted police after seeing a man and woman who matched the description of the burglars after seeing the story on social media, a police spokesperson said. The Good Samaritan led officers to where the suspects were.

According to the owner of the bakery, the pair was recognized outside of a Walgreens by a security officer. She also said that it’s unlikely that she’ll get her iPad back, but is thankful the suspects are “off the streets.”

Michael Winefsky, 46, and 33-year-old Sarah Stasium were located and taken into custody.

Winefsky was charged with trafficking stolen property possession of dangerous drugs and burglary. Stasium was charged with burglary.

The bakery was also broken into in February. Similarly to the most recent incident, the burglar is caught on surveillance footage entering the store and taking cash from the register. Afterwards, the suspect wiped down the area with cleaning spray.
