JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A man Jonesboro Police say was responsible for a number of burglaries and thefts at construction sites faces 4 felonies.

37-year-old Robert Jeff Brady of Jonesboro is charged with theft of property over $2,500, 2 counts of theft of property over $500 and residential burglary, all felonies.

According to Jonesboro Detective Vic Brooks, Brady is responsible for multiple burglaries and thefts occurring since July 26. The probable cause affidavit says Brady admits to the thefts in detail on video but says he could not remember all of the thefts he has committed since he was drinking heavily when he and others would commit the crime.

On July 26, a residential burglary and theft reportedly occurred at a home under construction where the victim's home was broken into. Detective Brooks says numerous tools were stolen, valued at more than $2,500. A mirror incident occurred August 7, when the same type of incident reportedly happened at another home under construction.

In both cases, witnesses were said to have given a description of Brady.

Robert Brady was arrested August 10. Brooks reported finding numerous items later found to be stolen from construction sites in the back of Brady's truck at the time of his arrest.
