Game cameras lead to break in Arizona burglary cases

VALLE, Ariz. — Coconino County sheriff’s deputies say they have arrested a burglary suspect thanks to one resident’s game cameras.

Authorities say 18-year-old Winston Taylor Gallagher of Valle is facing burglary and related charges in one case. They say more charges are likely as the investigation continues.

Detectives have investigated about eight residential burglaries in the Valle area over the past six months.

In one case, a homeowner posted game cameras around his property in case the burglar returned a second time. Those cameras captured images of the suspect on Oct. 31.

One police officer recognized the suspect as Gallagher.

A search of Gallagher’s residences turned up items believed to have been taken during at least three burglaries.

Gallagher was booked into the county jail. There’s no phone listing for Gallagher in Valle and it’s not clear whether he has an attorney.
