PHOENIX (AP) - A man is in custody in connection with more than 50 beer thefts over a nine-month span at Phoenix-area convenience stores.

Phoenix police say Angelo De Leon allegedly targeted Circle K stores between May 2013 and last month.

Authorities say the total dollar amount lost in the thefts is nearly $6,900.

Police detectives worked with Circle K to acquire surveillance video and were able to identify De Leon as a suspect.

He was arrested Wednesday and booked into jail on suspicion of 54 counts of organized retail theft.

It was unclear Thursday if De Leon has an attorney yet.
