TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies have identified the couple seen in a homeowner's surveillance video before burglarizing the house, and arrested the man.
Deputy Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that Simon Peter Lopez, 33, and Christina Marie Paulson, 31, were seen driving up in front of a house in the 600 block of East Canyon View Drive in a stolen Toyota FJ Cruiser.
Deputy Renee Carlson says Lopez was arrested Wednesday, after media coverage of the burglaries prompted the public to call in tips.
The couple disconnected the surveillance camera before entering the home and taking several items.
Detectives received several tips after the video was released to news agencies and those tips helped them identify the pair.
Peine says the two were known to frequent the area of Prince Road and Stone Avenue.
Deputies are still looking for Christina Marie Paulson, if you have any information on her whereabouts, call 911 or 88-CRIME.
