PHOENIX (AP) - Two people accused of stealing patio furniture from outside Phoenix homes have been arrested.

Phoenix police say 34-year-old John Norris and 32-year-old Yvonne Romero are facing charges of theft and trafficking stolen property.

It was unclear Wednesday if either has an attorney yet.

They say Norris and Romero were in a pickup truck matching the one seen on surveillance video when they were arrested Tuesday.

Police say they were investigating more than 10 recent cases of thieves stealing patio furniture off residents’ front porches.

They say Norris and Romero may be connected to 20 such cases.

Most of the thefts occurred between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.

Police say one victim found their stolen patio furniture being sold online and notified authorities.
