DENVER -- Police have arrested a suspect who is being linked to 17 burglaries or attempted burglaries in the Stapleton area.

Rodrick Myles, 33, is being held for investigation of 13 counts of burglary, four counts of attempted burglary and two counts of Criminal Trespass.

According to the arrest affidavit, the suspect began entering homes and garages, either unlocked or by use of force, and stole purses, wallets, cash, change, credit cards, vehicle registration and insurance cards.

The burglaries began Aug. 2 and lasted through Aug. 10.

The suspect was recorded on security cameras.

Court documents state that on Aug. 11, a woman called Denver police and told them she was "199.99% positive the subject in the videos was Rodrick Myles," and that he "has a history of burglaries," and had been incarcerated for 8 years."

The woman told police she "was calling to report this because she was afraid (Rodrick) was going to get hurt or killed by someone, if found in their home."

Denver7 obtained some of the security video which was included in a story that aired on Sunday.

The booking photo appears to match the man in the security video.

Myles is due in court at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
